Transport Project Officer
Scale SO2/PO1/PO2 Depending on Experience (£31,548 – £36,711)
Would you like to be a part of The London Borough of Hounslow, whose diverse workforce are committed to making a positive difference for our residents and visitors by ensuring the quality of our services are maintained to a high standard?
The Council is embarking upon a major programme of change to modernise the way we work and reduce our carbon footprint. In April 2019 we moved to Hounslow House, a new landmark building located in Hounslow town centre, our new technology will enable staff to work remotely and flexibly to improve the service we provide to residents and to help our staff achieve a better work/life balance.
The Traffic and Transport team is going through an exciting time. As a result, we’re looking for an experienced project manager to take charge of a project portfolio with minimal supervision. It’s a chance to have a positive impact on the people who live and work in our borough, while also receiving clear career progression and first-class flexible working opportunities.
As an essential member of the Transport and Environmental Strategy team, you will identify, design and deliver transformational projects that focus on achieving our corporate and Local Implementation Plan objectives.
To join us, you’ll have a good working knowledge of the latest approaches and technical standards that apply to managing road space and parking. Not only that, you’ll bring an awareness of the vital role such schemes play in achieving wider transport policy objectives.
You’ll also bring a degree/HND (or equivalent qualification/experience) and will be able to skilfully communicate your ideas to colleagues, developers, elected councillors and the public – both through verbal presentations and written reports. Most importantly, you’ll be passionate about working collaboratively with an innovative team to deliver fantastic results. In this case, you’ll help us achieve our challenging targets to improve safety – and facilitate increases in sustainable travel modes – through the development of Hounslow’s highway network. While not essential, a background in either sustainable transport scheme development (walking/cycling, bus infrastructure etc.) or parking management (controlled parking zones etc.) would benefit your application.
If you’re interested in the role, and would like an informal chat about the post and the team, please contact Christopher Deakins via email: [email protected] or Tel: 020 8583 4866.
