About us
Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all. As the Principal Transport Planner responsible for parking policies, projects and shared mobility schemes, you will oversee a small team of officers responsible for helping implement key aspects of the Camden Transport Strategy.

The role
This is an exciting opportunity to lead the development and implementation of parking policies and projects which play a key “demand management” function in reducing motor vehicle ownership and trips in Camden, and that enable switching to low/zero emission vehicles. This will include leading on reviewing, consulting on, and implementing, changes to Controlled Parking Zones (CPZs) across Camden, as well as regular reviews and amendments to multiple parking permit products which play an important part in helping constrain car ownership and motor vehicle trips in the Borough.

The role will also lead in progressing the feasibility, and potential engagement/consultation, business case stages and implementation, of a Workplace Parking Levy for Camden.

You will also lead in developing and implementing kerbside parking projects, in particular overseeing the implementation of the Borough’s rapidly expanding on-street and off-street network of Electric Vehicle Charging Points (EVCPs), as well as supporting EVCP development in off-street locations, and leading on rolling out “parklets” at the kerbside.

In addition, you will oversee and lead the continued Borough-wide roll out of the on and off-street secure cycle parking programmes, and lead on the continued roll-out of micromobility and shared mobility transport options in Camden including our dockless bike hire, e-scooter and car club systems.

In this role you will be required to manage multiple budgets and deliver initiatives on time and within financial constraints. The role will lead and manage a small team of transport planners, and carry out multiple activities in an innovative, dynamic and proactive way.

About you
We are looking for a skilled and knowledgeable project manager with experience in the preparation and review of transport/parking policy and/or transport planning/strategy documents. You will also need to have a good understanding of the national, regional and local policy and legislative context in which transport planning & policy in Camden operates.

To be successful in this role you will need to be able to demonstrate effective partnership working and the ability to develop strong stakeholder relations, including liaising and negotiating with all relevant external on behalf of the council.

You will be an innovative, pro-active and enthusiastic leader, with the ability to manage a small team of transport planners. You will effectively support more junior members of staff to learn and progress, so that the team as a whole maximises its contribution towards delivering key elements of the Camden Transport Strategy.
