Transport Planner – Scheme Evaluation

Job Description

We are recruiting Transport Planners with a passion for transport scheme evaluation to join our growing Transport Planning Team and would like to discuss our exciting range of opportunities with prospective candidates.  We have been very successful in winning evaluation work over the past six years, due to the quality of the Team we have at Atkins and due to the excellent relationships we have formed with our clients. We work with Department for Transport, National Highways,  and many local authorities on a varied portfolio of monitoring and evaluation studies spanning process, impact and economic evaluation. Our 20mph policy evaluation for Department for Transport was a particularly high-profile recent example in which we are extremely proud of the national coverage it received and of the scope and innovation shown in delivery. We have positions available for both those looking to develop a career in monitoring and evaluation through to those with many years’ experience in monitoring and evaluation who could help to lead and deliver projects. The ideal candidate has Transport Planning experience to assist in our broader consultancy activities across the country, but the individual will look to focus on our evaluation portfolio where possible. The role will provide direction, training and support ensuring best practice is followed leading to the efficient and timely delivery of projects.

  • Working with and directing junior colleagues in evaluation work.
  • Working with colleagues to design robust methodologies to evaluation challenges.
  • Supporting the transport planning discipline beyond evaluation as appropriate, with broader transport planning skills a must have.

We have an exciting range of opportunities across disciplines and levels of experience.  Successful applicants will be flexible, self-motivated and will be expected to demonstrate a blend of experience from the following:

  • 5 or more years’ experience in transport planning.
  • Evaluation experience required. This can be programme, policy and/or scheme evaluation experience.
  • Experience with using a broad range of transport data to support evaluation.
