Job Summary What we do:

This is what we do in the Modelling and Appraisal team. In the spirit of trying to 'deliver a better world' we are trying to improve the transport of today for a better tomorrow. Whether we are assessing the impact of town development on a transport network or identifying synergies and inter-dependencies between schemes; we are working collaboratively with the rest of our 100+ transport planning colleagues across the South East and the rest of the teams in the UK and to create innovative solutions to the problems our clients are having.

We have:

* A strong team of experts to work with and learn from

* A variety of different teams and opportunities within the company for whatever career pathway you want to take

* Exciting projects (some not so exciting, let's be honest) to work on ranging from local, national and international problems to solve to keep you busy

* A flexible working policy - work/life balance is the key!

* An office 5 minutes away from both East and West Croydon stations

* Dedicated mentors to help support you in your future training

* A Sports & Social Club, offering theatre trips, fun runs and bowling nights to name a few

* And last but not least, a comprehensive internal training programme to teach you what you may want to learn but haven't had the chance to yet

Minimum Requirements You need:

* You will have demonstrable experience in managing teams and developing them to meet their potential.

* You should have experience in some technically challenging transport planning projects - we love to hear about those!

* You need to be great with clients, managing their expectations and delivering their projects - we also love happy clients!

* You should have acquired strong market knowledge, if not, where have you been hiding?

* You will have an analytical mind and background - you want to know the why's and wherefores of things - especially if they transport related;

* You will have knowledge and experience in transport modelling and forecasting and experience in appraisal and evaluation of transport proposals;

* You have used and have great knowledge of simulation software packages e.g. SATURN, PARAMICS, CUBE, EMME, VISSIM, TUBA and spreadsheet modelling to name a few;

* You are good at managing your time to ensure you meet those pesky deadlines;

* You need to have strong technical and report writing skills;

* And you should be able to explain technical concepts to others, especially our graduates and anyone else who may ask…

Preferred Qualifications It would be great if you had:

* Membership or working towards membership of a chartered professional institution such as CIHT, TPS, CILT or ICE

* A Master's degree or PhD in Transport Planning or related subject/social based discipline

* We would like for you to have a professional accreditation such as TPP, CIHT or MICE
