Consultant Intelligent Mobility and Smart Technologies

  • Job reference: R-026303
  • Sector: Atkins
  • Location: Bristol

We're looking for a technology consultant who has ambition for growth, creativity, technical knowledge and excellent project delivery experience. Your core skills will include technical project delivery, client relationships and working collaboratively with business development and practice team.  You will be solving complex conundrums while delivering technical solutions; and you like nothing better than being challenged to apply smart technologies in new ways.

You are a high-energy individual who likes thinking innovatively and taking risks to challenge the status quo.  You clearly want to succeed - for yourself, for your organisation and for your client. You’re a learner – compelled to make the best of your abilities and talents as well as to continually build upon them. You want to make a real contribution to exciting and industry-leading projects within a forward-thinking organisation. You thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced environment and enjoy finding innovative solutions to existing problems.

And overall, you get satisfaction from building relationships, with clients and colleagues alike. You enjoy getting to know people and working out how you can have a positive impact on them — whether that's delivering something that a client needs or discovering a new approach that will change the world of transportation.

Does this sound like you? Can you see yourself in this role? In which case, we'd love you to apply!
