Principal Transport Planner
£46,608 to £49,452
An Exciting Time for Transport in Brent
An exciting opportunity to shape transport in the borough has arisen. Brent’s population is growing and with this comes increased pressure on the borough’s transport network. We are looking for a Principal Transport Planner to join Brent and play a key role in helping develop the borough’s latest Local Implementation Plan.
We are a tremendously vibrant London borough where the iconic arch of Wembley Stadium dominates the skyline. Spanning both inner and outer London, it is a borough of huge contrasts in terms of its economic, environmental, ethnic and social make up. Brent’s diversity is evident to all who visit our borough and our long history of ethnic and cultural diversity has created a place that is truly unique and valued by those who live and work here.
The post holder will play a key role in implementing the Mayor’s Transport Strategy at a borough level through developing the Local Implementation Plan, in consultation with a range of stakeholders, including elected members.
Alongside a focus on strategic policy, the post holder will work on a variety of projects aimed at improving the transport offer in the borough, including, but not limited to increasing cycling provision and electric vehicle charging as well as high profile projects. The post is an excellent opportunity to be part of developing and implementing transport policy at ground level.
No day is the same with the post holder being actively involved in a range of work from the preparation of written responses to consultations, to representation of the borough at stakeholder meetings, and from liaison with both internal and external stakeholders to responding to queries from members of the public.
The post will require a high level of project management and the post holder will manage a more junior member of staff including monitoring of their development and performance.
This permanent post with flexible working arrangements is based at Brent Council’s award winning offices which are within walking distance of Wembley Park station.
