This role represents a fantastic opportunity to work with colleagues across the council to ensure active travel is fully embedded into everything we do. You’ll be part of a creative team with clear values centered around curiosity, making things happen, seeing the bigger picture, collaborating and achieving positive outcomes.
You should have a transport planning, or similar, qualification and experience of working in a transport planning environment and of managing related legal agreements. We’ll want to see a good understanding of current best practice in the promotion of sustainable transport. Strong written and verbal communication skills are also essential.
In addition, we’ll also want to see the enthusiasm, ambition and skills to help deliver our Transport Strategy, feed into a green recovery, help tackle the Climate Emergency, and protect the environment. You’re someone who can influence the shape of the borough.
We’re based in Hounslow House, but are currently working from home. We also offer excellent career development, an inclusive culture and a whole range of generous benefits. All in a visionary borough like no other.
