Station Capacity Planner

Job Description

Who are we looking for?

Based in Manchester or London, we’re looking for an individual with a degree in transport planning, geography or another numerate or spatial planning degree, and experience in delivering pedestrian planning projects.


You’ll need to be committed to improving stations for passengers, and be continuing to develop strong relationships with key stakeholders to get things done. As lead for a Network Rail geographic route, and a support to a regional lead, the ability to handle a challenging workload and work autonomously is a key requirement.


What will I be doing day to day?

Supported by your regional lead, you’ll be responsible for projects on a Network Rail route. You’ll have strong relationships with project teams, longer term strategic planners and development managers to ensure they have the technical support they need to support and prioritise enhancements and investment.


As a lead on larger projects, you will manage a team of technical specialists to deliver analysis for our customers, and present outputs in an accessible way. Your support will be at all life-cycle stages for projects, from business case building through to challenges in phasing and buildability. You will have an awareness of the longer-term capacity challenges on your route, and support development of schemes which holistically benefit the network.


Typical tasks of a Station Capacity Planner:

·        Handle the relationship between route, external stakeholders and station capacity.

·        Prescribe analysis to make the case for capacity interventions and develop client proposals.

·        Lead a delivery team to provide outputs to agreed timescales and budgets.

·        Review analysis, promote best practice and follow quality assurance processes.

·        Present findings to project stakeholders and attend relevant meetings.

·        Scope inputs and work across teams to ensure joined up thinking
