**Job Summary**

**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 better world’ 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 100+ transport planning colleagues across the South East 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 strong team of experts to work with and learn from

* 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.

* A range of break out areas to socialise in, including a ping pong table to bring out the competitive side in you

* Dedicated mentors to help support you in your future training

* A Sports & Social Club, offering summer BBQ’s, bowling, and lots more

* 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 cafe with a wide range of healthy, delicious food options

**Minimum Requirements**

**You need:**

* You will have demonstrable experience in managing teams and developing them to meet their potential.

* You should have experience in some technically challenging transport planning projects – we love to hear about those!

* You need to be great with clients, managing their expectations and delivering their projects – we also love happy clients!

* You should have acquired strong market knowledge, if not, where have you been hiding?

* 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…

**Preferred Qualifications**

**It would be great if you had:**

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

* A Master’s degree or PhD in Transport Planning or related subject/social based discipline

* We would like for you to have a professional accreditation such as TPP, CIHT or MICE​
