Help Lewisham get the Bakerloo Line!

Lewisham has a real chance to get the tube network for the first time ever. This is a very real prospect, but it’s not assured.

The Council is hugely positive about the benefits that the Bakerloo Line can bring. We’re now looking for an experienced Transport Planner – Major Projects to help us make sure it happens and that Lewisham takes full advantage of the opportunities it can bring to the borough.

The Role

You’ll act as the key technical lead on transport planning matters for the BLE and other related infrastructure and regeneration projects.

This post is being offered on a 2 year temporary contract but there is possibility of extension beyond this.

Laurence House, Catford
