You will be given the opportunity to lead your own projects and/or work within multidisciplinary teams on larger proposals to administer, produce and deliver projects effectively to strict deadlines, whilst maintaining high technical performance standards.

Providing multi-faceted advice ranging from initial pre-acquisition feasibility studies, to strategic advice, Local Plan site promotion, to preparation of outline & detailed planning application reports (including Transport Assessments/Statements, Travel Plans, Environmental Statement Transport Chapters, preliminary access/junction improvement designs), to discharge of planning conditions and planning appeals will come naturally to you as you draw on your extensive experience in the use of micro-simulation models such as VISSIM and PARAMICS, as well as your knowledge of DfT WebTAG policy and experience using GIS software, including Basemap TRACC/QuantumGIS/ArcGIS or MapInfo to deliver to clients in line with deadlines and client expectations.
