Job Information

AECOM Senior Transport Planner - Development in Chelmsford, United Kingdom

United Kingdom - Essex, Chelmsford - UK

Job Summary

AECOM is currently searching for an experienced Senior Engineer / Senior Transport Planner to join our Development Planning team in Chelmsford. We are looking to enhance and grow our team with an individual who has a strong technical background and shares our enthusiasm and determination to support our expanding and varied workload. We offer a friendly and enjoyable working environment and the role would suit an enthusiastic Transport Planner who is looking to take the next step in their career.

Our wider Development Planning team spans several offices across the South East and works with private and public sector clients, architects, planners and other development professionals across all sectors throughout the development life cycle; providing services from initial site feasibility and due diligence through to completion. This role, therefore, offers the opportunity to work with colleagues from different offices, as well as teams from various professions, on a diverse and interesting range of projects.

Typically, we undertake transport-related work in support of our clients’ planning application submissions, including documents such as Transport Assessments/ Statements, Travel Plans, Delivery and Servicing Plans, Construction Traffic Management Plans and Preliminary Design work as well as assisting them in site masterplan development. Our projects cover a full range of land uses including mixed-use developments, residential, commercial, education and energy schemes.

A significant part of the workload of the Chelmsford team focuses around the specialism of road safety auditing/ engineering and therefore an interest (or better still any experience or qualification) in road safety auditing and engineering would be desirable, although not essential as training can be provided. This role is therefore well suited to those looking to develop their road safety experience or to broaden their existing skillset.

The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate a proven background in development-related transport analysis and assessment. We would expect strong communication skills which we would continue to develop and experience of, or a willingness to, help develop junior staff. We are looking for someone who is looking at the opportunities available to further develop their career and is enthusiastic about working on a range of projects which support development at various stages of its life.

Job responsibilities:

  • Supporting and taking responsibility for the production and delivery of Transport Assessments, Transport Statements, Travel Plans, Masterplans and other technical reports/ deliverables to support development

  • Working with other members of the Development Planning team, private and public sector clients, architects, planners and other professionals throughout the development life cycle

  • Mentoring of junior staff and supervising work carried out by junior members of the Development Planning team, ensuring that it is to the appropriate technical standard and is delivered to programme and budget

  • Supporting the preparation of fee proposals for new projects and working with the Team Leader and Project Managers to ensure projects are delivered to budget and that KPIs are met

  • Supporting and attending meetings including client meetings and undertaking negotiations with Local Authorities and other regulatory bodies.

Minimum Requirements

  • A strong understanding and working experience of the various aspects of Transport and Development Planning and the effective delivery of project work

  • Experience in liaising with clients, local authorities and other regulatory bodies and familiarity with the UK planning system

  • Experience in understanding client briefs and developing fee proposals

  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills and an ability to communicate well with a range of bodies

  • Good presentation and technical writing skills are required, and a sound working competence in the use of MS Office suite

  • Experience in the preparation and ownership of development-related Transport Assessments, Travel Plans and similar

  • Experience of industry-standard junction capacity assessment applications such as Junctions 9 and LINSIG. Experience of larger network modelling would be desirable but not essential

  • Some wider experience in technical/ DMRB design, site master planning and ideally road safety engineering/ auditing

  • Ability to work effectively in an unsupervised environment both individually and as part of a team

  • Leading and taking responsibility for pieces of work and delegating/ mentoring junior staff in its production

  • An ability to demonstrate management techniques including project and resource management as well as the mentoring of junior staff.

Preferred Qualifications

  • A degree in an analytical subject such as Engineering, Geography, Mathematics, Economics or similar

  • Membership of a relevant professional institution (CIHT, SoRSA, CILT, IHE, TPS, ICE)

  • A Masters degree in a relevant subject is desirable but is not essential

  • Road safety auditing/ engineering qualification is desirable, but not essential.
