About the role
As Senior Project Manager for Transport Behaviour Change you will lead the delivery of high-profile transport improvements across the city that promote sustainable and active travel.

You’ll be based in our modern, open plan offices in the city centre and benefit from flexible working, including home-working. Joining our enthusiastic and supportive team you’ll collaborate with colleagues from a range of fields and work closely with project teams delivering transport changes across the city.
