news: ITP welcomes three new graduates

It's been an exciting summer for ITP as three new graduates join our Birmingham, London and Nottingham offices. The new recruits will be part of our graduate training programme, spending time in each of our public transport, development planning, transport strategy and smarter travel teams to gain a breadth of knowledge in different transport planning disciplines. Graduates will also have the opportunity join our international team to work on projects in South-East Asia, Africa and Eastern Europe.

Let's find out a bit more about who has joined the company...

Fred Schneider

With his Scandinavian background, Fred has a keen interest in creating liveable cities and is curious about the future of low emission and autonomous mobility. Last summer, Fred spent two months with Kier Group in their highways division where he undertook research that explored the commercial opportunity for connected and autonomous vehicles. His dissertation explored the values that people associate with car ownership and the barriers to the acceptance of shared, autonomous and electric forms of transportation in the future.

Since joining ITP, Fred has become part of the Transport Strategy team, working on studies to explore managing dockless bike schemes in London, effective parking management strategies and developing Transport Plans for Local Authorities. 

In his free time Fred enjoys swimming, exploring the great outdoors, and eating out too much. His friends would describe him as being outgoing and dependable. One thing that most people don't know about Fred is that he has flown a stunt plane over the Grand Canyon!

Oliver has previously spent 3 months in Norwich City Council's planning department where he reviewed and assessed planning applications, and for his dissertation he conducted a study into the dualing of the A11 in Norfolk to explore the economic effect on the wider region.

So far, Oliver has worked within ITP's International team which has enabled him to be involved in projects in Ghana, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Ukraine. For these projects Oliver has produced various GIS outputs and analysed socio-economic data sets using GIS and Excel. 

Outside of work, Oliver enjoys cycling, cooking, and travelling to new cities. His friends would describe him as being caring, funny, and competitive.

With a head for numbers and a degree in Geography, he uses his statistics background to analyse complex data sets using a combination of R and SPSS, to understand the impact of transport interventions and find sustainable solutions to real-world transport problems. Aided by his experience in market research, Tom has already begun crunching numbers as part of our Transport Strategy. team.
