This is an exciting and rewarding opportunity to lead the Transportation Planning Team as it develops an extensive and diverse programme of transport projects within Sandwell.

There has never been a more exciting period to be working in the transport planning sector in Sandwell. In partnership with the regional transport authority, Transport for West Midlands, Sandwell has secured funding from the City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement, the Active Travel Fund, and Towns Fund.

The Transportation Planning Team leads on the development of projects ranging from new segregated cycle routes, through transport innovation and future mobility, to major junction upgrades as well as playing a part in the development of several public transport projects being promoted by TfWM. This includes the Wednesbury to Brierley Hill West Midlands Metro extension and infrastructure to support the Bus Service Improvement Plan.

The successful candidates will;

  • Be responsible for the day to day management of the Transportation Planning Team.
  • Lead on the development of Transportation Infrastructure projects and their business cases.
  • Lead on the formulation of transport strategy and policies.
  • Liaise with partner organisations and represent the Council on regional transport groups.
  • Deputise for the Strategic Planning & Transportation Manager when required.

Candidates should;

  • Possess a degree in Transportation Planning or similar relevant subject and be a member of an appropriate professional institute.
  • Have experience at a senior level of leading on projects, managing others and of managing tasks in a complex environment, making balanced decisions based on data and evidence.
