 Do you want to make a positive difference to the quality of our built environment and the health of our citizens?


Do you have the planning and/or engineering expertise and necessary drive to help us make this happen?


A great opportunity has arisen for a dynamic and enthusiastic manager to join the City Transport Service managing the Transport Development team.


Bristol is a successful, dynamic and diverse city with an innovative and strong local economy. As significant new developments are brought forward you will be required to work in partnership with developers to ensure transport improvements are secured in line with the environmental, connectivity and public health objectives set out in our One City Plan.


Key to this role will be the ability to work under pressure in a political environment, drawing on your technical experience whilst using negotiation and problem-solving skills to address issues and challenges as they arise throughout the development management process.


We require applicants that are innovative and dynamic with the ability to effectively take advantage of partnership, income and planning gain opportunities.


You should have an excellent knowledge and practical application of transport development management policy and guidance with proven line management and project management skills and experience.


We would particularly welcome applicants from black and minority ethnic communities who are under-represented at a management level.
