Job Vacancy

Public Transport Planners - all grades

Closing date: 30th November 2021

If you know your BSOG from your BSIPs, then we are looking for highly motivated people with knowledge of UK public transport planning and operations to join our team in Birmingham, London or Nottingham.

ITP is an award winning transport planning consultancy that employs the very best transport planners and provides an environment in which people can flourish and develop fulfilling careers.  We recently joined forces with Royal HaskoningDHV – expanding both the horizons we can offer our people, and the range of interesting and socially impactful projects on which we work.  

We are keen to recruit people with interest and knowledge in local bus operations, Demand Responsive Transport services, and network planning. They will join our team of UK public transport experts, based predominantly in Birmingham, as they work to help local authorities and public transport operators implement the aims and objectives of England's Bus Back Better strategy. We also help administer a number of Concessionary Travel schemes on behalf of local authorities, and provide input to ITP's Transport Strategy and Development Planning teams - helping ensure local bus services are designed-in to new communities.

Ideal candidates will be enthusiastic, people-orientated individuals with knowledge of, and interest in, UK public transport operations - particularly local bus services in urban and rural areas. We are particularly eager to hear from people with experience of collaborating with local authorities and bus operators to deliver on shared objectives, such as improving the reliability, affordability, and attractiveness of bus services, as well as growing patronage.

Importantly, you should share our belief that transport planners have a responsibility to help create more sustainable places, and our enthusiasm for local public transport services as a means of achieving this.

Although based in one of our UK offices, you will be able to work remotely on a regular basis, and projects may involve travelling across the UK.  You will be given the opportunity to accelerate your career by working alongside industry experts, within an inclusive and caring company environment.  You will be expected to:

  • Manage small to medium sized projects for local authorities and private sector clients under the guidance of a Project Director
  • Communicate effectively with local authority clients and public transport industry stakeholders to develop and maintain productive working relationships
  • Manage your time effectively, working with colleagues to deliver multiple projects to scope and budget
  • Proactively contribute to company growth through business development activities
  • Inspire and develop less-experienced members of staff by freely sharing your knowledge and experience


We think the ideal candidate will have:

  • Exceptional transport planning technical skills and UK experience of local public transport projects
  • A sound understanding of public transport policy and current issues in the UK
  • Knowledge and skills to extract and analyse public transport data sets to derive valuable insights
  • A growing network of industry contacts and positive client referrals
  • Excellent inter-personal and communication skills
  • Excellent report-writing and presentation skills
