Can you help shape the future?

Oxford Bus Company Group are recruiting a Strategic Development Manager/Town Planner on a part time basis to join our team based in Oxford.  

Oxfordshire needs to accommodate more housing. These unmet housing needs will be situated in neighbouring districts and it is therefore essential that this housing is provided to meet the needs for sustainable transport - and buses in particular.  For this to happen we require a suitably qualified Town Planner to identify both strategic and local planning development opportunities and ensure appropriate infrastructure, developer contributions, CIL and public transport provision is provided in these new developments.

Our main desire is to ensure that new developments are serviceable by all transport modes including the bus, with developments that are suitable for buses to access and which can also sustain viable commercial bus operation in the long term. 

To be considered for this role, you should have Degree level education in Planning, Transport and/or Local Economic Development, excellent interpersonal skills, confidentiality and tact along with previous experience working with Local Authorities and other public institutions.   You will have an excellent level of IT literacy along with good organisational and administration skills and self-motivation. You will be an excellent communicator and the ability to work within deadlines.

We recognise the value of a diverse workforce and the differing communities in which we operate. Differences in age, race, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, physical ability, thinking style and background bring richness to our business.
