About the Role
As one of the world’s leading engineering, professional services and technical consultancy firms, at WSP, we’re passionate about the big questions.
And big answers, naturally. For us that’s all about reaching beyond the expected to do work that’ll make a profound impact felt long into the future.
We are seeking to recruit a Senior Transport Planner to join our Transportation team in Leeds. This part of the Transport Team undertakes largely development planning work specialising in providing advice to private sector clients on access, transportation and infrastructure issues and supporting development proposals through the planning process.
It works closely with our Infrastructure Team, Environmental team and our Property team.
We operate throughout Yorkshire and the North East of England with projects ranging from minor extensions of community facilities through to redevelopment of town centres and major business parks.
A typical week would include :
Some financial management will be required on individual projects to ensure efficient use of resources and up to date invoicing.
We'd love to hear from you if you have :
traffic management techniques and Highways Agency and Local Authority design guidance to enable you to work effectively as part of the team
We are looking for someone who is able to develop as the team grows with the opportunity that WSP can offer being significant.
Together, our people make up one of the world's leading engineering professional services consulting firms. We’re dedicated to the communities where we live and work in the UK and propelled by international brainpower.
Staying curious is what drives us. Looking at challenges from fresh angles helps us deliver future-ready solutions that break paradigms.
With around 7,900 talented people in 70+ offices across the UK, and 43,000 around the world, we engineer projects that will help societies grow for lifetimes to come.
What if we can?
What if we can have work-life balance? What if we can be rewarded in ways that support our individual needs? What if we can be accepted for who we are? Here at WSP we can!
WSP recognizes that work is only one part of our lives and making time for the other things in our life is important be that our families, our friends or ourselves.
So, if working from home, working part-time or having flexible start and finish time will help with this let us know as part of your application.
As well as rewarding you with competitive pay, WSP offers standard benefits including a 37.5 hour working week, 25 days annual leave, pension schemes, life assurance, personal accident cover and paid professional subscriptions, and some not so standard benefits as part of our flexible benefits scheme so if you would like to hop on a new bike (cycle to work scheme) or thrill the family with your Lego building skills (Discount at Legoland Windsor) WSP can help!
Be you, be happy - we strive to have a friendly and inclusive culture which respects and maximizes the contribution individuals can bring to WSP.
We recognise the benefits that people with varying backgrounds and experiences can bring. Our VIBE (LGBT + employee network) and WiL (Women in Leadership) networks work with the business to help ensure we continue to promote the right environment to enable LGBT+ and female employees to reach their full potential, and to ensure we continue to promote equality, inclusivity and diversity for everyone.
