This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in shaping the future of transport in West Yorkshire and beyond.

West Yorkshire Combined Authority is delivering a significant, ongoing transport investment programme. With transformational future developments also planned, this role is critical to understanding the impact of current work on our transport network, and to developing robust evidence to shape future investment plans.

We are looking for someone with strong analytical skills, a passion for transport and a desire to improve outcomes for people and the economy.

You will:

  • Be responsible for managing the Combined Authority’s transport evidence base, delivering a programme of work to aid understanding of key transport trends and issues for the Combined Authority and its partners.

  • Play a key role in developing transport interventions that are based on robust evidence, providing insight and analysis that will help to bring significant investment to the region.

  • Lead on the monitoring and impact assessment of key transport and infrastructure projects across West Yorkshire and Leeds City Region.

  • Represent the Combined Authority at key national forums including the Urban Transport Group and Transport for the North (TfN).

This critical role will lead and manage the organisation’s transport analytical function and provide high quality outputs to inform and support the work of the Combined Authority and its partners, line managing dedicated analysts responsible for the provision of all analytical outputs in this area.

Ideally you should have demonstrable analytical experience, preferably in transport or related disciplines through your education and/or employment history. Along with a good knowledge of statistical analysis and modelling techniques, you will have demonstrable ability to communicate analysis clearly and effect change through the application of your analysis, particularly to inform strategy and policy development.

You should have a strong understanding of transport’s wider role in supporting local economies and in supporting labour mobility.
