  • Contribute to the production and delivery of proposals and marketing materials related to our market area from time to time.
  • Take part in training to develop both your technical and consultancy skills.

What you'll be great at:

  • Being comfortable working in creative multi-disciplinary teams and provide positive contributions in resolving complex design problems.
  • Taking responsibility for key tasks and workstreams, managing multiple deadlines in parallel.
  • Demonstrating strong analytical skills as well as excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Hold professional and academic qualifications and standing in transport or related degrees (e.g. BSc, BEng, TPP or similar), and preferably a Masters.
