Position title
Graduate Transport Planner
Description

You may not know what a Transport Planner does, but it’s a very important job, and one with great prospects.

Picture a housing scheme, or retail park. Now think of the ways that people get in and out of it. For example, there are bus, pedestrian, and cycle lanes (very important for sustainability).

The job is related to the planning application process and designs for these routes.

You’ll be working on a range of projects and preparing transport assessments for new developments.

There is plenty of work with data; interpreting it and producing reports to clarify impacts, and likely transport patterns. Then using special software to design junctions. And you'll be outlining designs of sustainable transport improvements.

You will be in regular contact with outside partners, including planning consultants, architects, surveyors, clients, and developers.

You’ll get to see the developments you are working on as there will be the occasional site visit (you’ll be going with people to start with).

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT…

Some of the above may not mean anything to you, but don’t worry: full training is provided. It’s a small business, so you’ll be learning on the job.

You’ll always be learning and adapting, as the policy base changes both at local and national level.

If you would like to work towards Chartership then the business will support you.

WHAT YOU’LL GET…

Starting salary is around £24,000, maybe a bit more if you have some relevant experience.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

You’ll need to have excellent written and verbal communication skills.

Good Excel skills are also needed, as you’ll be managing and interpreting data.

If you've used GIS or AutoCAD that would be a bonus (you can learn it if not).

There is some flexibility on degree type, though the preferred ones would be Geography, Maths, or Civil Engineering. Of course anything Transport Planning related would be ideal.

WHERE YOU’LL BE DOING IT

Nottingham city centre; close to tram, train, and bus routes. Some of the team cycle, and there is space to store your bike, together with shower and changing facilities.
