Our collective expertise means we have a very influential position in guiding sustainable development and
supporting economic growth in the county.

About Transport Planning in Devon

In the role of Transportation Planning Graduate, you will receive training, gain experience and develop
your skills across a wide range of transport issues. The transport team has a key role in developing
transport plans to support ambitious housing and jobs plans and ensuring that growth comes forward in a
sustainable way. Understanding how the impact of technology and innovation will change the way people
travel is an increasingly important part of the role and is an exciting time to be working in the sector. In
recent years, the team has been hugely successful in securing funding to enable delivery of several high-

Cranbrook and the Exe Estuary cycle trail – this is set to continue with a significant number of new
schemes to be delivered across Devon in the forthcoming years.

About the post

From day one, you will receive necessary training and hands-on challenges. The work you would
undertake will be diverse and dynamic, ranging from representing the County Council at public exhibitions
to drafting Committee reports and undertaking work on extensive modelling projects. You will be

your findings.
You will need to develop strong communication skills for this role, both written and face-to-face, and you
