Job Duties:

An opportunity has arisen for a new Sustainable Transport Development Officer (travel plans) within Transport Waste and Environmental Management. The role will report to and work with teams in both Passenger Transport and Active and Safer Travel.

Forecasts predict that by 2050, the population of Hertfordshire will have grown by around 400,000 to over 1.5m, having a major impact on traffic congestion and journey times, particularly during peak travel periods. To date, over 30 Air Quality Management Areas have been designated, and obesity costs the county an estimated £404 million per year.

The role seeks to make Hertfordshire’s transport network more sustainable, increasing opportunities for residents to travel to school or work by public transport, walking and cycling, facilitating behaviour change, and reducing reliance on single-occupancy cars.

The role of the Sustainable Transport Development Officer (travel plans) is to work with the planning process to secure travel plans for school developments which maximise sustainable access and ensure sustainable options are considered at the earliest design stages. They will also work with business and residential developments to ensure that existing travel plans are implemented fully and effectively, helping staff and residents working and living there to travel more sustainably.

The role is very varied and fast-paced with regular deadlines, and requires someone who is comfortable working with people across multiple teams and organisations, and is committed to the outcomes of sustainable transport.

Closing Date: Sunday 8th July 2018
