Make your mark on a sector that's going from strength to strength

 Set the retail strategy for our unique retail portfolio
 Inspire your team to maximise value through innovation
 Cultivate high-level strategic business partnerships
 Help top brands perform to their full potential

Network Rail is revitalising Britain's railway, undertaking some of the most ambitious engineering ventures this country has ever seen. Now we're bringing that same drive and imagination to maximising the retail potential of our owned and managed stations – all key spaces in prime city centre locations.

At a time of flat high street sales, station retail continues to perform remarkably well. Add in the fact that each year more people are choosing to travel by rail and the scope to do even better becomes clear. And with the millions of pounds generated annually by retail being reinvested in rail infrastructure, here's your chance to help transform how people travel for generations to come.

Leading and inspiring the retail team in optimising every income generating opportunity, you'll formulate a strategy for long-term income growth and be the driving force behind its implementation. This top level role will also see you identifying and cultivating strategic partners and promoting the superb trading environments offered by our unique property portfolio.

You'll need:

 Senior management experience in the commercial world
 Proven ability to deliver profit
 Talent for clear and persuasive communication
 High level negotiating and budget management skills

We’re a forward-thinking, creative team, committed to enhancing the business as a whole. Our people are passionate about building on the success we’ve achieved to date, and ultimately providing a better experience for the millions who rely on rail services every day.

Network Rail welcomes applications from a diverse range of candidates regardless of background, disability or gender and is committed to creating a workforce as diverse as the communities we serve.

Closing date: 25 April 2012.
