An exciting opportunity has arisen for a recent graduate to join a graduate programme for a leading consultancy that delivers transport planning and highways & traffic engineering design services. Please read the information below and apply with your CV today!
This role will provide you with the opportunity to deliver projects from inception to construction. There are many stages in-between and many specialisms required to develop a project; from writing policies and strategies, to collection and analysis of baseline data, production of design options, complex computer modelling, detailed design, specification of materials, construction phasing etc. There is a long list of tasks required to move a project from “I think we need to improve this” to a finished product
This is in an exciting period as they have ambitious growth plans and are looking to expand the scope of services that they deliver. They have also secured a number of long-term contracts that provide the foundation for their growth plans. They need people to help them to achieve their growth targets and are keen to employ gifted and enthusiastic graduates at the beginning of their careers, who will benefit from the guidance and mentorship of experienced engineers and planners.
They will consider applicants from a wide range of disciplines and academic backgrounds for a wide range of roles, including (but not limited to) civil engineers, transport planners, urban and landscape designers, regeneration specialists, traffic engineers, AutoCAD specialists, traffic order makers, traffic modellers and development planners.
Specific experience in one or more of these areas is not a pre-requisite; they can provide the training and guidance needed for candidates with the right academic background and aptitude.
The Purpose of the Role
Will include but will not be limited to:
This company will provide you with all the tools and support you need to achieve your professional development ambitions, including affiliation with a relevant professional institution. They have contacts with the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation and Institution of Civil Engineers and have team members at all stages of professional development that can help you to achieve your goals.
They will provide you with the following opportunities and development support:
They want to develop rounded individuals that understand all aspects of their business. They know that the best training that you can receive is “on the job”, i.e. working on exciting projects and delivering outputs for clients. They therefore operate a graduate rotation scheme, whereby new graduates provide support to projects across the range of specialisms. Depending on project wins and support needs you could therefore be involved in designing urban realm schemes, undertaking traffic studies, preparing detailed highway designs, consulting with the public over major scheme proposals, or helping to develop parking solutions. You will therefore be provided with experience in many areas of the business so that together we can determine where your skills and interests best fit with your career aspirations.
You are the main driver behind your development. They will provide you with the experience, development tools and guidance to achieve your goals but it is up to you individually to proactively manage your development.
Knowledge – one or more of the following is desirable:
