About the Role
We are looking for a Transport Engineer/Graduate ideally with some experience in Transport Planning and Traffic Assessments but we will consider graduates who are keen to work in this field of work. You would join our team in Belfast working on Masterplan Developments across NI, Scotland, England, Wales and ROI, working on both public and private sector projects, undertaking traffic assessments and determining highway improvements, working with our innovative design teams to resolve problems. This is a vital analytical role that engages with design engineers using LinSig and Junction modelling tools. You will also be meeting with architects and planners and Roads Authorities and preparing traffic reports. This role could suit someone seeking a Transport and Highways role with the opportunity to progress.

About You
Suitable candidates will ideally have a degree in Transport Planning, Geography, Mathematics or Civil Engineering interested in working towards Chartership with CILT, CIHT, ICE, or IEI or equivalent.

Experience in using LinSig and Junction and Signal modelling tools would be a benefit. Knowledge of Microsimulation tools would be advantageous too. You should demonstrate good attention to detail and possess excellent communication and report writing skills. Familiarity with the standard NI documents for planning applications would also be particularly useful. Confidence is required to enable you to discuss projects confidently and know what you are modelling.
