Senior Transport Planners
Transport Scotland is the national transport agency for Scotland and is accountable to Parliament and the public through Scottish Ministers, with a budget of around £2 billion per year. It is responsible, on behalf of Scottish Ministers, for overseeing the operation and maintenance of the railways and trunk road networks throughout Scotland, for transport policy, aviation, ports, freight and inland waterways, and for running the national concessionary fares schemes. Transport is a vital feature of the Scottish Government's focus on increasing sustainable economic growth, and transport investments and policies have major impacts on the economy, people, and the environment.

The Transport Strategy and Analysis Directorate (TSA) brings together a number of cross cutting functions, including the National Transport Strategy and setting the investment priorities for transport across Scotland through the second Strategic Transport Projects Review. Key areas of policy activity include the Transport Act, Transport Scotland’s preparation for EU Exit, future mobility, and transport’s contribution to inclusive economic growth and Climate Change. All of which is being looked at through a different lens due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The directorate brings together the transport planning and analytical teams with a remit which includes providing analysis and research to support strategy and policy.
To help us deliver our responsibilities we are seeking suitably qualified and experienced applicants to fill a number of Transport posts within the Transport Strategy and Analysis Directorate. Successful applicants will be allocated posts that most closely appear to match their skills and experience. These are exciting and challenging posts in the directorate.
The current salary range for Senior Transport Planners is £38,541 – £46,599 (pro rata for part time). The role also currently attracts an annual pay supplement of £4,500 (pro rata for part time). Supplements are subject to regular review.
