Further information

Have you ever considered the stories behind the journeys on our transport network each day; and how a future network can unleash the potential of a region and its people? At Transport North East our role is to develop those future plans and secure the investment to deliver them.

For passengers and freight, Transport North East oversees strategic transport planning at a regional level on behalf of the North East Joint Transport Committee, representing the seven local authorities in our region; and always striving to make our vision evermore real: “Moving to a green, healthy, dynamic and thriving North East”.

We’re looking for a Data Analyst to join our growing organisation as we continue to shape the future of transport across the region. You will work with data from all transport types, with a primary focus on cycling and walking data. Your work will enhance our strategic view and make the case for improved funding packages for our region. You will play a key role in the development of the North East Active Travel Strategy, which will need to be data driven.

As part of your involvement in the Active Travel Strategy you will:

• Analyse how the current local and regional cycling network can be further developed in line with transport objectives;
• Undertake geospatial analysis to identify gaps in the cycling network at a regional level;
• Procure and analyse additional walking and cycling data and use this to enhance understanding of trends and gap analysis in the region; and
• Analyse data to better understand the economic benefit of active travel and increase understanding of the demographic of active travel infrastructure users and the barriers which prevent some groups of people from using active travel.

You will have experience of analysing and reporting on data sets from a variety of sources and will be able to provide a creative approach to problem solving.

You will also have excellent communication skills which will enable you to present data findings and insight to senior management in a clear and engaging way. Documents you produce will be read by influential stakeholders including regional politicians, transport operators and government departments, so we insist on exemplary writing skills.

If you have the skills and enthusiasm to help us to drive our organisation forward, then why not join us on the Transport North East journey? We’d love to hear from you.

This role will report to the Senior Transport Data Analyst, Transport North East.

This post is a 12 month fixed term contract.
