With skills in project management and delivery, alongside experience of producing reports and costs estimates, you will also be familiar with cycling and walking design guidance. Your strong written and verbal communication skills and ability to build successful working relationships, as well as your knowledge of Health & Safety regulations will be crucial to your success in this role.
