Are you qualified to A-level standard or equivalent and interested in specialising as a Project Manager?
We are looking for confident, committed people who work well with others and are eager to learn to join the Transport Infrastructure Skills Academy. Youll complete a 24-month apprenticeship as a Project Manager while helping to realise our ambition to create a fully digitised, accurate record of the West Midlands Highway Network.
No experience in transport is necessary.
About the team
Your main role will be to make progress on the digitisation of Traffic Regulation Orders (TROs) as part of the Rules of the Road Project; a workstream of the Innovation programme. TROs are legal instruments created by local authorities to regulate and implement changes on the road network. This can include features such as road markings, traffic signs, waiting restrictions and speed limits or temporary changes for roadworks and other events. The Rules of the Road project aims to make TROs fully digital and machine readable. This provides a unique opportunity to attract new entrants to the industry and provide training in the skills required to take part in this project and to fill the skills shortage faced by the Highways, Traffic and Transportation sector.

The region is at the epicentre of much of the UKs research and are piloting new mobility services and data driven systems. We have a unique and substantial programme of innovation and data science which is driving a revolution in our transport system and enabling the delivery of an unprecedented scale of infrastructure investment.
Whether its developing and delivering new infrastructure, collaborating on future mobility projects, operating the West Midlands Metro or helping customers to keep moving, we need creative and innovative talent to join our already excellent team and help us make a real difference to residents, businesses and visitors travelling in and around the West Midlands.
