This is a fantastic opportunity to work for a forward thinking and dynamic unitary authority located between the Liverpool and Manchester conurbations. With good transport connections locally, good schools, several vibrant retail centres and masses of open space and parks, Warrington is a great place to work, live and visit.
You would be leading a team of transport planning professionals in an authority with an excellent record of delivering innovative and brave transport projects. Warrington has developed a reputation for delivering change, having attracted new transport investment for projects such as Warrington West rail station, a new bus depot, an all-electric fleet of buses, on-street electric vehicle charging and Levelling Up funding. In addition, Warrington has an ambitious Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plan which has already delivered many miles of new cycle routes and better facilities for pedestrians. All this work supports the Council with its ambition to be carbon neutral by 2030.
The successful candidate will manage a team of transport planners, with responsibility across the full range of transport planning fields and projects. Your team will lead on the development of important transformational transport projects, both large and small, together with the development of transport strategies for Warrington and bids for external funding. If you have considerable experience in manging people and projects, in developing schemes from an initial concept and have a strong transport policy background then we’d love to hear from you.
We provide a supportive, inclusive environment, where you’ll be encouraged to shine and make the most of your unique talents. We’re serious about building a bold forward-thinking workforce so we will be investing in your skills and empower you to success.
