Description

Our world-leading transport modelling teams play a crucial role in TfL’s evidence-based decision-making processes. You will have the opportunity to gain experience across our transport modelling and data teams, ranging from strategic London-wide topics to very local area micro-simulation of individual person movements. You will understand the data that is available at TfL, how it informs our models and other analytical tools, how to use the analytical tools and models, the interactions between them and how the outputs are used by stakeholders across TfL and beyond.

Responsibilities

As a graduate, your two-year development programme will be made up of at least four placement rotations, including at least one in each of our three transport modelling and data analysis teams. Our aim is to equip you with the range of skills and experience you need for a successful career in transport modelling and analysis. We also understand that everyone’s career is different, so every graduate’s journey is unique. Here’s an idea of what yours could look like:Placement 1 – Operational Modelling and VisualisationYou will use one or more of our industry-leading highway network models, local area micro-simulation models or junction models to support the design, implementation of the signal timing strategies, build and operation of road enhancement schemes, such as a new cycle route, bus lane or to support a large area of new housing. You will prepare the models, informed by data, to ensure they are suitable for the assessment, undertake the assessment, analyse the outputs and utilising our team’s visualisation function to create unique ways in which we can present the complex modelling analysis into a simple medium that our wide a varied stakeholders can understand. Placement 2 – Public Transport Service PlanningYou will undertake modelling and analysis to inform decisions about public transport service changes. You will use one or more of the team’s station, train service or public transport network models. You will work with stakeholders to identify the appropriate scope of work and with technical experts to ensure the models are used accurately. These changes could include updates to bus or rail services to better meet passenger demand across London or plans to update stations or understanding the impact of closures to support planned improvement works. You will become familiar with the wealth of public transport data we use to inform service changes to Buses, LU, Elizabeth line, DLR, London Overground and Trams.Placement 3 – Strategic AnalysisYou will work with data and tools at a London-wide level informing key questions around the transition to net-zero carbon or how London may change in different future scenarios. You will work with our strategic transport modelling suite, MoTiON, or maybe one of emerging innovative forecasting tools such as our Activity Based Model or our land-use transport interaction model. There could also be the opportunity to work with our environmental models to inform initiatives such as the ultra-low emissions zone and/or work with data to monitor the progress we are making towards our ambitious targets. You will work on themes that are major challenges for London and beyond, such as air quality, or assess how major schemes, such as High Speed 2, will impact London.
