A superb opportunity has arisen for a Senior Transport Planner to join our client's rapidly expanding office in West Yorkshire. They are a very well established, medium size, independent consultancy, with multiple offices, and an excellent industry reputation.

Candidates must have gained solid experience of the transport issues associated with development planning. Experience of preparing and delivering Transport Assessments, Travel Plans and Access Appraisals of land use development studies is essential. You will be numerate with good technical report writing and data analysis skills, and possess outstanding verbal and oral communications when advising and updating the clients. Contributing to identifying new client opportunities and bid / tendering work will be encouraged.

Experience should have been gained in the use of computer software such as Junctions 8/9 (ARCADY, PICADY), TRANSYT and/or LinSig. Candidates should be proficient with MS applications.

A degree in a related subject is required, and an M.Sc or further transport planning or relevant post graduate qualifications in addition is desirable, but again, this is not essential.  

Prospects to progress are excellent as the office is young and expanding quite rapidly. The basic salary is negotiable, but probably in the region of £38-45,000 p.a., depending on experience, together with a comprehensive and very attractive benefits package, in which hard work is very well rewarded with regular bonuses.

Want to find out more? Then please telephone Peter Wills for a confidential chat on this and other opportunities that may be available to you, or email him your CV and he'll contact you by return. All contact / discussions are in complete confidence.

At Peter James & Partners we respect your privacy and take extraordinary care in the handling of your CV and other information we obtain from you. We will not send any of your details, nor approach our client on your behalf in respect of this vacancy, without discussing it with you first and obtaining your permission to do so.

All our services to candidates are FREE and completely CONFIDENTIAL. In the event of Peter James & Partners successfully placing you, our client will pay us a pre-agreed fee for doing so.
