AECOM Associate Director in Glasgow, United Kingdom
United Kingdom - Scotland, Glasgow
What we do:
“One of the really great things I enjoy working with AECOM is that in my daily work I encounter a wide range of problems, and am given the freedom to experiment and innovate to find a solution. I feel that I am making a difference.”
This is what we do in the Modelling and Appraisal team. In the spirit of AECOM trying to ‘deliverabetterworld’ we are trying to improve the transport of today for a better tomorrow. Whether we are assessing the impact of town development on a transport network or identifying synergies andinter-dependencies between schemes; we are working collaboratively with the rest of our 30+ transport planning colleagues across Scotland and the rest of the teams in the UK and AECOM to create innovative solutions to the problems our clients are having.

A variety of different teams and opportunities within AECOM for whatever career pathway you want to take
Exciting projects (some not so exciting, let’s be honest) to work on ranging from local, national and international problems to solve to keep you busy, including the maintenance and update of the Transport Model for Scotland
A flexible working policy – work/life balance is the key! We would consider the role on either a full or part-time basis and are happy to look at a range of different working patterns.
Dedicated mentors to help support you in your future training
A comprehensive internal training programme to teach you what you may want to learn but haven’t had the chance to yet
And last but not least, a central, modern office with panoramic views of the city centre
As a Principal Consultant you will be expected a manage small team, impart your wisdom and support and mentor this team effectively;
You must be able to handle the project management of medium size projects and produce competitive proposals to help keep the team busy and happy;
Go out and meet clients and tell them honestly how great AECOM are and how we can support them, solve their problems and deliver their projects successfully, within budget;
Manage said budget;
You will have an analytical mind and background – you want to know the why’s and wherefores of things – especially if they transport related;
You will have knowledge and experience in transport modelling and forecasting and experience in appraisal and evaluation of transport proposals;
You have used and have great knowledge of simulation software packages e.g. SATURN, PARAMICS, CUBE, EMME, VISSIM, TUBA and spreadsheet modelling to name a few;
You are good at managing your time to ensure you meet those pesky deadlines;
You need to have strong technical and report writing skills;
