Would you like to pursue your career in transportation?
Our award-winning transportation projects team is looking for a public transportation officer to lead the city council’s response to the government’s national bus strategy.
The National Bus Strategy, published in March 2021, set out a number of requirements for local transport authorities to improve bus services and help them recover from the Covid-19 epidemic. This included creating an enhanced partnership and preparing a Bus Services Improvement Program (BSIP).
Brighton and Hobb were referred to in the strategy document as a beacon authority in terms of its successful quality bus partnership, which has contributed to the highest growth of bus travel to the top among English local authorities outside London.
As a key member of the public transportation team, you will be responsible for managing the BSIP implementation, guiding the enhanced partnership, managing bus infrastructure and various promotional projects and maintaining excellent relationships with stakeholders throughout. You will also be the main liaison with the Department of Transportation to ensure compliance with all reporting and financial requirements.
The role makes an important contribution to the work of our busy Transportation Department and therefore ability to work within a staff environment is essential as well as experience in managing budgets and contracts.
Good communication skills, both orally and in writing, and experience involving stakeholder involvement at senior levels are important qualities.
