**Job Summary**

We are looking to recruit an experienced stakeholder engagement professional to join AECOM’s fast growing stakeholder engagement services team. The team has won a number of exciting new commissions and is looking to recruit into the Birmingham office.

This role will principally involve management and delivery of stakeholder engagement and consultation for a range of major infrastructure projects, with an initial focus on rail schemes.

There will also be a need to assist with the growth of stakeholder engagement service capabilities across AECOM, with a focus on providing advice and support to project teams working in a variety of sectors across the UK.

AECOM’s specialist stakeholder engagement team has a track record of delivering effective and innovative engagement and consultation for a number of high-profile projects across the UK. We work across a number of sectors including transport, energy, water and waste infrastructure as well as commercial and residential development. We also provide communications and engagement support around local planning policy development and a range of environmental initiatives.

Our role is to build understanding of proposals with all stakeholders, seek their views in a timely manner to inform policy, plan or design development and, where possible, develop consensus to help minimise objections. We work to engage and build effective working relationships with local authorities, land/property owners, technical stakeholders as well as potentially directly affected businesses, local communities, locally elected representatives, specialist interest groups and the media.

The team delivers a whole project service, from early engagement to inform policy and plan development through pre-application consultation to stakeholder liaison and management during construction, operation and decommissioning.

We work closely with clients to determine how best to communicate, consult or engage their stakeholders which, in turn, helps create strong, supported and deliverable policies, plans and projects.

Current and recent clients and projects include:

+ HS2, Supporting delivery of consultation on Phase 2b route

+ Network Rail, Stakeholder engagement to support major programme of upgrade works at Waterloo

+ Highways England, Support with consultation on major highway/junction improvement works

+ Transport for London, Consultation on Bank station capacity upgrade

+ support in identifying new business opportunities for the provision of stakeholder engagement services and leadership of associated proposal development; and

+ take a leading role in the ongoing proactive promotion of AECOM’s stakeholder engagement services to both internal and external audiences.

Working arrangements:

We are currently recruiting primarily to support the delivery of a number of new commissions on major infrastructure projects.
