Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive, by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because, we’re not just home to UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all.
As a Transport Planner you will help deliver strategic Healthy Streets projects and implement key aspects of the Camden Transport Strategy.
This is an exciting opportunity to project manage several “Healthy Routes” schemes from inception to completion helping deliver key Healthy Street infrastructure projects within the CTS. In this role you will be responsible for good quality project management of all aspects of Healthy Routes project development in order to ensure delivery of a rolling programme of schemes on time and to budget.
These schemes will include strategic bus and cycle projects, such as bus priority measures, extensions and upgrades to the Borough’s network of “primary” and “secondary” cycle corridors, and pedestrian, cycling, road safety and public realm measures along key high street corridors in the Borough.
You will also work with TfL to deliver Healthy Routes on the TfL managed “TLRN” red-route network in the Borough. Together, these initiatives form an integral part of the Camden Transport Strategy, by transforming our streets to enable more and safer walking and cycling and helping deliver schemes that improve bus journey times.
The role will also assist in securing improvements for walking, cycling and bus priority in the Borough, for example by supporting the development of funding bids for Healthy Routes projects.
You will have an understanding and experience of the policy and statutory framework – locally, regionally and nationally - within which Healthy Streets, transport planning and related activities operates.
You will be able to demonstrate effective project management experience – delivering schemes on time and to budget - and have the ability to develop strong stakeholder relations, including liaising with all relevant external organisations.
To ensure success in this role, you will need to have a good understanding and appreciation of issues specifically around streetscape design, accessibility and sustainability.
You will also be able to help prepare high quality papers and reports for Council Committees, public meetings and other bodies such as appeals and public inquiries (may be required to attend such events as and when necessary).
The role will part of our “hybrid” working arrangements with some remote homeworking and some time each week based in the office at 5 Pancras Square, with site visits and external meetings as required.
