What will the apprentice be doing?

Right now, we're looking for Transport Planning Technician Apprentices to join our Transport Consulting team in our London office. From your first day you'll join a community of experts, where everyone is supported in their career path and encouraged to work towards an accredited qualification. You'll help us to deliver effective and professional services for a range of varied and high-profile clients. While you'll have a great deal of responsibility from day one, we'll give you the chance to take on more as you progress and broaden your skills. 

As Transport Planners our work engages with all modes of transport, from walking and cycling to rail planning, station design and airport access across the UK and globally. Our apprentices work across all aspects of our business, including but not limited to: 

  • Support planning applications through the decision-making and post-decision processes 
  • Preliminary access and operational design advice 
  • Large-scale data analysis using a range of industry standard software 
  • Strategic transport advice for commercial and public sector clients 
  • Strategic and local transport modelling, including pedestrian and traffic simulation modelling 
  • Rail operations and planning 
  • Stadium operations and event planning 
  • National and regionally significant infrastructure projects 

Our transport planning experts work side by side with specialists from a wide range of backgrounds, including environmental, planning and civil engineering. Many of our projects are boundary pushing and nationally significant. 

We work hard to foster good relationships with everyone involved in the planning process – including national governments, regional partnerships or agencies, local planning authorities and developers as well the wider community and stakeholders. 

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

As part of your apprenticeship, you'll study towards the Level 3 Transport Planning Technician qualification.

You'll study at a local partner college on day release, and combine this experience with real responsibilities in the workplace.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

When joining us as one of our apprentices, you’ll enjoy the opportunity to study for a paid, professionally-recognised qualification in a discipline that will help you further your career.

Throughout your apprenticeship, you’ll have access to our online network. You’ll also take internal courses. These cover technical aspects of the business, such as software, but also vital ‘soft’ skills such as report writing and working effectively.
