We're recruiting: Senior Policy Adviser - Transport & Local Growth

Help us shape urban transport recommendations that support growth, a better quality of life and tackle congestion.

Published: 19 Nov 2021

By: Rob Mallows

Effective transport planning is essential for improving connectivity within, and between, towns and cities and supporting opportunities for economic growth and the development of places that offer a good quality of life for the people that live and work in them.

The successful candidate for this role in our policy team will be experienced in policy analysis, drafting and stakeholder engagement, with a strong knowledge of local growth policy and economics, particularly on transport. The role will include working on:

  • urban transport – developing analysis of and policy solutions for the effects of over-congested transport on productivity and quality of life in cities and their surrounding regions
  • interurban transport – improved understanding of the economic and social role of different modes of transport, the effects that enhancement may have for productivity and quality of live, and the optimal balance between investment in different modes.

You would be joining at an exciting time, as the Commission begins it works leading towards the second National Infrastructure Assessment in 2023. Supporting levelling up is one of the three strategic themes guiding our work, and our transport policy work will be an essential component of this.

More information on the role can be found on Civil Service Jobs. The deadline for applications is end of the day, 2 December 2021.
