Transport Planner
Markides Associates
Hybrid, London

If you have 1-3 years of transport planning experience, particularly in development planning, why not get in touch? We are a sociable team working from an office in Southwark, London, with a variety of interesting projects for the private and public sectors.

We thrive on challenges and our workload, ranges from small housing developments to new settlement plans, film production studios (at least one with a wizard’s touch), and helping transform traffic-dominated town centres. You would work on all aspects of transport planning from designing and improving places for walking and cycling, better public transport, and finding solutions for traffic concerns. We are also growing our capability in carbon-reduction and use of big data to inform decisions.

Our projects are located across the UK and internationally (Ireland, Cyprus etc). We are able to help you grow your career in a holistic way, focusing on both softer and technical skills, and offer training in all work areas.
