My client is looking for Transport Planners for their offices in London and Southampton. They have recently won some large projects and are looking to strengthen their teams.
You will be working on more commercial projects so a strong understanding of the private sector is essential at the higher levels. The core technical skills will be based around a good all-round knowledge of the UK planning system and highway infrastructure design principles as you get higher up the hierarchy.
They would also like you to have experience in the preparation of Transport Assessments and Travel Plan Reports, transport scheme design and appraisal and knowledge of relevant policy, guidance and advice such as Design Manual for Roads and Bridges and Manual for Streets.
Knowledge of the principles of strategic transport modelling, or prior experience of using SATURN and VISUM software would be desirable along with knowledge of AutoCAD, AutoTrack and GIS being desirable.
Knowledge and use of software packages, such as ARCADY, PICADY, LINSIG, TRANSYT, S-PARAMICS, VISSIM and TRICS would also prove beneficial.
A full UK driving licence is required.
If you are interested please contact me to discuss the position and your preferred location.
