Job Description

What we do:

“One of the really great things I enjoy working with AECOM is that in my daily work I encounter a wide range of problems, and am given the freedom to experiment and innovate to find a solution.  I feel that I am making a difference.”

This is what we do in the Modelling and Appraisal team. In the spirit of AECOM trying to ‘deliver a betterworld’ we are trying to improve the transport of today for a better tomorrow. Whether we are assessing the impact of town development on a transport network or identifying synergies and inter-dependencies between schemes; we are working collaboratively with the rest of our 30+ transport planning colleagues across Scotland and the rest of the teams in the UK and AECOM to create innovative solutions to the problems our clients are having.

We have:

•    A variety of different teams and opportunities within AECOM for whatever career pathway you want to take

•    Exciting projects (some not so exciting, let’s be honest) to work on ranging from local, national and international problems to solve to keep you busy

•    A flexible working policy – work/life balance is the key! We would consider the role on either a full or part-time basis and are happy to look at a range of different working patterns.

•    Dedicated mentors to help support you in your future training 

•    A Sports & Social Club, offering summer BBQ’s, bowling, and visits to the Fringe to name a few

•    A comprehensive internal training programme to teach you what you may want to learn but haven’t had the chance to yet

•    And last but not least, an on-site low cost24 hour gym, with additional corporate discount

•    As a Principal Consultant you will be expected a manage small team, impart your wisdom and support and mentor this team effectively

•    Go out and meet clients and tell them honestly how great AECOM are and how we can support them, solve their problems and deliver their projects successfully, within budget

•    Manage said budget. 

•    You will have an analytical mind and background – you want to know the why’s and wherefores of things – especially if they transport related;

•    You will have knowledge and experience in transport modelling and forecasting and experience in appraisal and evaluation of transport proposals;

•    You have used and have great knowledge of simulation software packages e.g. SATURN, PARAMICS, CUBE, EMME, VISSIM, TUBA and spreadsheet modelling to name a few;

•    You are good at managing your time to ensure you meet those pesky deadlines;

•    You need to have strong technical and report writing skills;

•    And you should be able to explain technical concepts to others, especially our graduates and anyone else who may ask…

•    Membership or working towards membership of a chartered professional institution such as CIHT, TPS, CILT or ICE
