  • Knowledge and experience in strategic modelling using SATURN or VISUM and / or micro-simulation modelling using VISSIM or Paramics.
  • The ability to understand the inputs to transport models and how resulting outputs can be used creatively to underpin a range of investment decisions
  • Desirable Skills :

  • Economic appraisal experience such as TUBA, COBALT, MyRIAD, QUADRO and WITA
  • Transport related MSc
  • Knowledge and application of Green Book principles, DfT TAG transport appraisal and business case development
