**Job Summary**

Our Model Development and Research team is based in our St Albans office, and is looking to recruit a Transport Planning Consultant, to help the team grow further. There is the potential for significant career progression, based on merit. This is an exciting opportunity for you to join a strong and accomplished team, working on leading modelling projects which are at the forefront of the Transport Planning industry.

Examples of these projects include the development of innovative and evidence-based techniques to process mobile network data to understand multimodal travel demand, using big data and data fusion techniques to fill in gaps in the data and improve accuracy of modelling results, and developing bespoke tools used for visualisation of data or forecasting. We are planning to expand our knowledge and skills in similar emerging areas over the next 18 months.

* multi-modal demand matrix development, increasingly using mobile phone data and other electronic data sources;

* strategic highway and public transport network models and calibration;

* multi-modal demand models (including tours, land-use transport interaction (LUTI) and parking models);

* statistical analysis, discrete choice modelling, and parameter estimation;

* forecasting, transport scheme appraisal and business case development; and

* research (travel behaviour, data analysis and application, new methods, contributing to guidance).

We have:

+ A strong team of experts to work with and learn from – we regularly present papers at conferences

+ A variety of different teams and opportunities within AECOM for whatever career pathway you wish to pursue

+ Exciting projects to work on ranging from local, national and international problems to solve
