The Intelligent Mobility and Smart Technology (IMST) practice, within the UK Transportation business, is the home of our market leading transport technology and mobility capability.  We work across the transport sector helping our clients navigate through a rapidly changing world linking current Intelligent Transport Systems with future-focused technology opportunities. The practice provides consultancy advisory, research, technical and design services to a broad set of UK and international clients in the transport sector, including the Department for Transport, Highways England, Network Rail and UK local authorities.  We blend market-leading capability in motorway control systems, toll road systems, urban traffic control and operations and smart ticketing with thinking and advice on emerging trends and growing areas such as digital highways, mobility as a service and Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs).

The IMST practice sits in the Consultancy practice – c 500 staff - within the Atkins Transportation business of c 3000.  Currently IMST comprises 90 staff from a range of disciplines facing into several key service lines across our clients, with approximately 20 staff focusing on traffic signals and urban traffic control projects across the UK.

The Role

This role presents a unique opportunity to join a dynamic team, to play a leading role in building and executing our plan for the future of transport technology and mobility. You will contribute to our IMST Strategy through technical excellence and high-quality project delivery. It will necessitate ambition, creativity, technical knowledge and excellent project delivery experience in the traffic signals sector.  Although anticipated that the role will be carried out from a local office location, it may include undertaking and developing schemes both in the UK and overseas and therefore necessitate the need for short term travel.

  • Responsibility for delivering and reviewing high quality technical reports
  • Developing commercial knowledge and input into cost models and budgets, including preparation of cost estimates and scopes
  • Actively raising project risks and issues
  • Carrying out research and analysis, providing well founded conclusions and recommendations
  • Contributing to business case and value proposition development
  • Assist and guide less experienced staff on technical delivery and project management
  • The role will involve a mixture of team and individual work, and require the ability to monitor own project work to ensure delivery to budget, time and quality

What you can bring

The successful candidate will hold suitable qualifications, and be able to demonstrate:
