Contract Details: Permanent

Cumbria is the place to be; with two stunning national parks, characterful towns and national connectivity, our quality of life is second to none.  While Cumbria has significant assets, our challenges include an ageing population, skills gaps, areas of high deprivation, low wages, poor housing affordability and the need to support economic recovery following the impact of Covid-19.  We are responding to these challenges with comprehensive policies, programmes and investment including the Borderlands Inclusive Growth Deal, major infrastructure projects, development of a Cycling and Walking programme and close partnership working with district councils in the development of Local Plans and delivery of Town Deals.

We are now looking to appoint into a number of posts to strengthen the team with motivated and skilled professionals to manage programmes of work, develop projects and undertake technical work.  We require individuals with knowledge and experience in infrastructure, scheme development, cycling and walking, transport modelling/economic appraisal, and/or town planning to join a friendly and supportive team to drive proposals forward and effect real change.
