FREIGHT TRANSPORT STRATEGY OFFICER

OVERVIEW

Buckinghamshire County Council has an exciting opportunity for a Freight Transport Strategy Officer to join our Transport Strategy Team.

ABOUT US

Buckinghamshire faces an extraordinary combination of high levels of housing growth, combined with the imminent impact of mega projects such as High Speed 2, Heathrow Expansion and East-West Rail.

Freight plays a key role within this picture, supporting local businesses and individual customers, and delivering materials to development sites across the county. Wider changes in consumer behaviour, increases in online retailing and the rapid growth of emerging technologies are also reshaping the goods that we need and how they are being moved around the county.

Against this backdrop, effective management of freight through and around Buckinghamshire is vital to maximising economic and quality-of-life benefits whilst minimising adverse environmental and place-based impacts.

ABOUT THE ROLE

You will lead on driving forward implementation of the recently adopted Freight Strategy within Buckinghamshire, developing lasting partnerships which bring together private and public sector partners with local communities around the county.

In consultation with senior councillors and officers, you will assist in managing an allocated freight capital budget and determining spending priorities to offset the adverse impacts of increased freight in the county, including physical schemes, behaviour change programmes and technological innovations.

Your specialist advice and guidance will be crucial in influencing the shape of sustainable growth in Buckinghamshire over the coming years.

Please see the attached job summary for further details

ABOUT YOU

We are looking for an experienced professional with good knowledge of freight-related transport and infrastructure policy issues. With excellent interpersonal skills, the successful candidate will be able to take on a mixture of objective and subjective data sources to negotiate solutions which balance the needs of a complex variety of stakeholders.

You will have a keen interest in the benefits which well-managed freight can bring to local communities, a recognition of the contribution that freight makes to local economic growth and desire to make a meaningful difference for Buckinghamshire’s communities and businesses.

The role will involve regular travel to various locations so access and use of a vehicle is a requirement.
