The latest reinvention of Birmingham is progressing at a remarkable rate. Continued national and international confidence in the future of the city means that the level of inward investment is both unprecedented and unabated. It is being put to good use – delivering tens of thousands of new jobs and new homes, creating new urban environments fit for modern life. Good transport is an essential ingredient in Birmingham’s future success. Transport is much more than a means of getting us to where we want to go each day. It also has the potential to open up new opportunities in every aspect of our lives. To unlock the transformational potential of transport, we need to fundamentally change the way people and goods move around the city.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced and motivated transport planner to join an expending transport planning team, to support the development, management and delivery of an extensive transportation capital programme. In a period of unprecedented development and transformation, the demand for specialist transport planning inputs to transport policies and masterplans is greater than ever, alongside the identification, specification and development of transport infrastructure.You should have a broad understanding of transport and land use planning policies within a local government context. Whilst you may come from a range of professional or academic backgrounds you should have knowledge or experience of two or more of the following in a transport context: developing budgets and programmes; policies, strategies, and plans; funding bids; Transport Assessments; transport appraisal; monitoring; and governance.
You will ideally have experience of multi-disciplinary and partnership project working, and project management. You should be able to work as part of a team, but be responsible for managing your own workload.You should have a demonstrable ability to communicate orally and in writing, be accurate and show attention to detail. IT literacy including office programmes is essential, whilst GIS skills are desirable.
You will be supported with your continuous professional development. You will get a minimum of 29 days holiday allowance per year, the opportunity to join a market leading pension scheme and enjoy an impressive package of other health and wellbeing benefits including our flexible working policy, and discounts with some of the UKs top retailers, fashion and tech brands.
