Reading Borough Council is a continually high achieving Transport Authority with a proven track record of service delivery.

An exciting opportunity has arisen in the Transportation & Streetcare section and we are looking to recruit two enthusiastic and ambitious individuals with the drive and desire to succeed and continue to shape the future of transport in Reading, including the delivery of a programme of major transport schemes. In these strategic roles within Transportation & Streetcare, you will work closely with the Management Team to ensure all elements of the Council’s Local Transport Plan are delivered.

The successful candidates will be expected to demonstrate the following skills:

  • Ability to work collaboratively and think strategically to promote and present innovative transport planning solutions and future strategies.

  • Ability to support the team on the delivery of major transport schemes working within a recognised project management framework.

  • Have an awareness/good understanding of transport policy and recent developments in the transport planning sector.

  • Good written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to work with key internal and external partners and stakeholders.

It would be beneficial if you have a qualification in transport planning, planning, regeneration, project management or a related discipline to degree level or equivalent, although this is not essential.

You must have very good communication skills and be able to work creatively and constructively within a team, with other parts of the council and partner organisations. A crucial part of this role will be your ability to work positively with stakeholders, the local community and elected members to deliver projects in line with the council’s priorities.
