Transport Planning Officer – Decarbonising Transport
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 the decarbonising transport priority within the Strategic Transport Plan and delivery of related projects within the Integrated Transport Programme. There are three key aspects to the role:
• To oversee the successful management, co-ordination, and delivery of the ‘Let’s Green Tees Valley’ funded programme. The programme aims to reduce carbon emissions by increasing the uptake of electric vehicles across Tees Valley.
• To work alongside commercial electric and hydrogen vehicle infrastructure providers to maximise commercial investment into Tees Valley and help to ensure a co-ordinated and integrated network.
• To support business and the public sector to secure grant funding for electric and hydrogen vehicle infrastructure and vehicles to maximise grant investment into Tees Valley.
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.
