Transport Planning Officer – Future Mobility
Tees Valley Combined Authority
Location: Cavendish House, Stockton-on-Tees

Tees Valley is where five distinct boroughs come together to make one exceptional destination in which to invest, live, work and visit.

The Tees Valley Combined Authority has made huge progress since its creation over two years ago, taking on devolved responsibilities from Government for transport, infrastructure, skills, business investment, and developing local collaborations on culture, tourism and housing.

These powers are backed up by substantial funding, a ten-year plan (approved in 2019) outlines how £588million worth of spending will support the creation of 16,785 jobs and an additional £1.48billion to the area’s economic output.

The investment plan, which supports the delivery of the Combined Authority’s Strategic Economic Plan was first launched in 2017 and includes £20million for a major transformational project in each of the five local authority boroughs, and an indigenous Growth Fund of £50million to improve and revitalise towns and communities.

We’re proud of our historical impact across the globe – from celebrated explorers and introducing the first passenger railway to providing the steel that built the modern world.

That legacy lives on today in the area’s rail and engineering industries, our deep-sea port and advanced manufacturing heart. Tees Valley is also a dynamic business location for digital and creative technologies, and a leading destination for process industry and new energy companies.

We love our diverse region, the five boroughs and their unique strengths that make Tees Valley greater than the sum of its parts, where the industrial skyline impressively frames rolling green landscapes and beautiful coastlines. A place of cultural and economic growth.

The Tees Valley Combined Authority is looking for a Transport Planning Officer to support the implementation of a series of projects within the technology priority of the Strategic Transport Plan and Integrated Transport Programme, including the Urban Traffic Management and Control (UTMC) funded programme and other innovative smart solutions to further enhance the Tees Valley transport system.

There are two key aspects to the role:
• To work alongside Middlesbrough Council (as the lead authority) to oversee the successful management, co-ordination, development and delivery of the Urban Traffic Management and Control (UTMC) funded programme across Tees Valley. The programme aims to improve the movement of traffic across Tees Valley, thereby reducing congestion, journey times and emissions; moving towards a fully connected transport system.

• To oversee the successful management, co-ordination, and delivery of innovative smart solutions to further enhance the Tees Valley transport system.

We are looking for someone who is highly motivated and enthusiastic with a focus on delivery to make their mark in this exciting new role.
