PO4: Starting salary £41,466 pa. This post attracts the 7% market supplement that the service currently offers its professional transport team officers.
18 months fixed term opportunity with possibility to extend.
This is an exciting opportunity to join the Transport team, playing a key role in delivering this flagship programme for Lambeth’s ambitious new Transport Strategy. We are looking for a candidate with motivation and capability to match this ambition.
Low Traffic Neighbourhoods aim to reduce traffic on residential streets in Lambeth and in doing so transform conditions for walking and cycling, improve air quality, reduce emissions and make our streets safer. We need to carefully consider changes to the local road network and work closely with local communities to ensure a successful outcome.
It’s not just about what the project delivers, but also how we go about it. We are committed to an inclusive approach that reaches out across our diverse communities and provides opportunities for local people to get involved. This is a behaviour change project and every step of the process needs to reflect this, raising awareness, providing opportunities to do things differently and supporting people through change along the way.
Working with senior staff in the Transport team, senior management and Members, you will be responsible for leading on LTNs at a number of locations in Lambeth, making sure that the benefits are realised and shared by our many local stakeholders. Providing advice, oversight and support, you will work with a wide range of internal and external partners to help us deliver the programme.
This role is initially offered as a 18 month fixed term contract from 01 April 2020, with the strong potential to extend for the right candidate.
- Will demonstrate experience of playing a key role in complex, high value transport projects.
- Will demonstrate a thorough knowledge of local, national and international transport policy approaches and an appreciation of best practice in the implementation of walking, cycling, and neighbourhood improvement schemes.
- Will have experience of programme management.
- Will demonstrate a systematic approach to project management as well as political awareness and excellent stakeholder engagement skills.
- Will have a thorough understanding of the complexities of transport planning and operating in a local authority context.
- Will have excellent communication skills, the ability to build strong working relationships, internal and external, and to contribute to the development of the service.
- Will demonstrate commitment to deep and meaningful community engagement and innovative approaches to achieve this.
