Have you ever considered the stories behind the journeys on our transport network each day; and how a future network can unleash the potential of a region and its people? At Transport North East our role is to develop those future plans and secure the investment to deliver them.
We have entry level opportunities for people who are excited by the potential of North East England and are looking to develop your skills in transport planning and local government policy development. The roles will have areas of key focus which will either be the development and delivery of rail and metro strategy or the development of enhanced bus partnerships; both areas are mission critical projects. These projects go beyond transport, they write the story of the future of a region, its environment, its economy and most importantly the lives of its people.
By the end of the placement you will have worked alongside teams setting the direction for transport in our region. Using data and making factual arguments to support your approach you will contribute to the strategies and policies which underpin decisions and calls for investment. Whatever your background, if you have the skills and imagination and to support us, we would love to hear from you.
For passengers and freight, Transport North East oversees strategic transport planning at a regional level on behalf of the North East Joint Transport Committee, representing the seven local authorities in our region; and always striving to make our vision evermore real: “Moving to a green, healthy, dynamic and thriving North East”.
These roles involve work with partners so you will be required to confidently and competently network outside the core Transport North East team. You’ll need to be a good listener too: all of our partners have distinct needs which you need to take the time to understand.
Critically, you will have writing and communication skills. Your work will be read and considered by influential stakeholders including regional politicians, transport operators and government departments. Why not join us on the Transport North East journey?
