Job Title and Reference: Transport Planner (2019/002)
As part of the ongoing plans to expand the Company, SAJ Transport Consultants is looking to recruit a Transport Planner to work in the Newcastle upon Tyne office.
The role is advertised as full-time position, but we are open to discussing alternative arrangements to suit life-style choices.
This is an exciting opportunity aimed at a candidate who is self-motivated and can contribute to the continued development of the Company.
We are looking for an individual who has the confidence to see the opportunity presented by this role and to make the decision to approach us because they want to develop a career in the field of transport planning.
As a minimum you will be degree qualified with a minimum of one year work experience in the field of transport planning. We are open to considering different degree qualifications alongside suitable experience.
SAJ Transport Consultants is one of the few independent transport consultants with a stakeholder status in the Transport Planning Society (TPS). We will encourage and support candidates to engage in a formal TPS training scheme to acquire the necessary knowledge and experience to address transport issues and to keep abreast of the opportunities that exist in what is an ever-changing profession.
About SAJ Transport Consultants
The Company was established in 2007 and has continued to grow and expand its workload and client base throughout the intervening period. It has done so by employing high quality staff that buy into the Company ethos of client care and on delivering cost effective solutions. We believe that a satisfied client is the best form of marketing!
The majority of the work is at the planning stage for private sector clients, although one of the focus areas for expansion is the public sector where we have completed a number of projects over the past 24 months.
The role will require excellent oral and written communication skills, to convey information to clients, fellow professionals within project teams and to local authorities.
You will be working within a close-knit team where the focus will be on contributing to the success of the project; whether leading the project or as part of the project team.
The projects vary in size and complexity. We believe that experience is best gained by being adaptable and to become adaptable needs exposure and support through many different situations. We encourage a pro-active approach to the work we do and seek contributions from all members within the team.
It seems that there are no easy projects anymore. We see this as an opportunity and not a problem. If you are of a similar mind-set, then we would really like you to take a look at the roles we are looking to fill and to get in touch.
