An exciting opportunity has arisen to meet the growing portfolio of projects within one of the UK's leading independent consultancies.
My client is a specialist practice with an integrated approach to Transport, Placemaking and Engineering. Their holistic approach ensures both innovative and deliverable design solutions and supports their vision to create better places through good design.

Ideally, the applicant should be able to demonstrate a strong interest in active travel and placemaking and have evidence of planning and designing walking and cycling infrastructure at differing levels of granularity - although detailed design expertise is not required for this position.
