Public Transport Officer

Brighton & Hove Council

Public Transport Officer
£28,226 - £32,798

Job introduction
Would you like to further your career in sustainable transport?

Brighton & Hove is nationally recognised as a beacon authority for buses with, pre-Covid19, the highest rate of bus use outside of London.  This excellent track record was recently rewarded with a government grant of nearly £28m over three years to implement our Bus Service Improvement Plan, forming part of the Councils response to the Department of Transport’s National Bus Strategy – “Bus Back Better”.

About the role
We are looking for an additional Public Transport Officer to join our highly motivated and collaborative public transport team.  As a key member of the team you will help plan, maintain, and promote innovative solutions to develop the local public transport network.

You will need to work closely with our key partner organisations including local bus and train operators, local communities, and a variety of teams from across the City Council. Good communication skills, both speaking and in writing, and experience of stakeholder engagement at senior levels are therefore important attributes.

The role makes an important contribution to the work of our busy City Transport division so an ability to work within and across teams is essential as is experience of budget and contract management.

If you would like to discuss this opportunity please email: Owen McElroy, Senior Project Manager on [email protected] or leave a message on 01273 293693

Closing date: 12 June 2022.

Encouraging a diverse workforce
Our city is known and loved for its diversity. Not only is the mixture of people, culture and skills vital to the economic and social development of the city, it's what makes Brighton & Hove such a great place to live, work and visit. We are committed to developing and retaining a workforce that is representative of the diverse communities we serve so we welcome applications from individuals from all backgrounds. In order to achieve our aims of proportionate representation, we particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as disabled, male or trans.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community but particularly encourage applicants from a BME or White Other background as well as those who identify as disabled, LGB, female or trans as these groups are currently under-represented in our Directorate workforce.
