We undertake Transport Assessments, Travel Plans, and provide key transport inputs to develop Travel Demand Management Strategies, Preliminary Highway Design, Spatial Plans and Masterplans. Our clients include master developers, landowners, housebuilders, retailers, health trusts, universities, local authorities and contractors.

As a senior member of JPP your roles and responsibilities will fall into the following areas:


  • Develop and grow a development planning business from our office in Poole.
  • Liaise with current and proposed clients to develop repeat and new business for the company.
  • Establish strong working relationships with other internal teams within JPP, particularly the development planning team in our Northants HQ.
  • Prepare detailed client briefs or fee proposals for client submission.

  • Take full responsibility for the delivery of projects.
  • Liaise with senior stakeholders, including the clients’ project directors (or equivalent) to resolve issues early and safeguard our interests.
  • Present to clients and key stakeholders in a professional, responsive and client-focused manner.
  • Act as a Project Manager/Director as necessary, including monitoring financial performance.
  • Ensure technical content and quality of output produced is in line with the project brief.
  • Attend Project Progress meetings along with necessary client meetings.
  • Provide technical knowledge and leadership to junior members of staff.
  • Supervise work carried out by other members of the team, ensuring that it is to the appropriate technical standard and is delivered to programme.
  • Be a point of contact for clients, architects, planners and other professionals throughout the project.


Minimum Requirements

  • The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate a proven background in work-winning and wider business development acumen. From a technical perspective, experience in development-related transport analysis and assessment, with wider experience in project management and mentoring and coaching skills is essential.
  • High degree of competence in project management and commercially aware.
  • A proven record of dealing with clients, local authorities and other regulatory bodies.
  • Experience in understanding client briefs, developing fee proposals and effectively delivering project work.

Preferred Qualifications / Not Essential

  • A degree in an engineering / analytical subject such as civil engineering, geography, mathematics, economics, planning or similar.

Whilst this exciting and unique opportunity is geared towards an experienced and enthusiastic Transport Planner, we would similarly consider a skilled Civil / Infrastructure Engineer who is currently seeking a new challenge and play a pivotal role in the forward growth agenda of JPP by expanding our Development Planning discipline from the south coast of England.
