MRCagney is a leading independent transport and planning consultancy, with a reputation for excellence and innovation across the fields of urban transport and mobility. We have offices in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Auckland, and operate internationally in Asia and the Pacific.
From our inception, MRCagney has been involved extensively in complex urban mobility projects. Our company ethos is “mobilising people strengthening communities”. This ethos is about making a positive, sustained contribution to the people and communities that we work with. We apply this passion and our ‘people-first’ approach to the places, towns, cities and countries in which we work.
Transport planning to us is about people, not numbers, and we specialise in providing pragmatic, real-world advice that our clients can follow with confidence. Our services range from strategic management and business consulting through to technical transport, planning, urban design, and engineering.
About this role
We are seeking an enthusiastic intermediate cycling consultant/planner to join our team in Auckland and be an integral part of our growth as we seek to make a difference to the cities and communities around us. Based in our vibrant O’Connell Street office, you will assist on projects both locally and throughout New Zealand and Australia.
With at least two years’ professional experience, you are someone who revels in the chance to apply your technical capabilities and powers of critical reasoning to help us shape a better world.
As member of our consultant team, you will be involved in all aspects of our business and your responsibilities will include business development, marketing, bid preparation and project management.
We offer a competitive salary commensurate with your skills and experience. As an independent, staff-owned company, our workplace culture supports flexible working arrangements (including part-time roles) and the open sharing of ideas on how to continually improve the services we offer.
You are a transport professional who is looking to take a big step in their career, or an urban designer/landscape architect who is passionate about sustainable transportation in cities and is interested in moving into the area of planning and designing for active modes. Maybe you are looking for a change from a large international consultancy, wanting to work on exciting sustainable projects across New Zealand and Australia or maybe you’re looking to step outside of the public sector; no matter what your background, we offer opportunities and flexibility that few of our competitors can match.
But first, you will have to meet this list of basic criteria. We know it’s long, but we value our current team and it is really important to us that we hire the right person to join us.
- Ideally you’ll have at least two years’ professional experience in best practice cycle infrastructure planning and design. This includes:
- Cycle infrastructure design,
- Transport/land use integration,
- Cycle design guidelines,
- Multi-modal street design.
- Previous experience in the Auckland market, will be well regarded.
- You will hold tertiary qualifications in an appropriate technical field, which might be engineering, urban/town planning, landscape architecture or something else we haven’t thought of yet.
- You will be a technologically savvy person with core skills in Adobe Creative Suite and SketchUp. We like people with extra skills, so if you have them, tell us about them.
- You’ll have to work collaboratively and collegiately; with our staff, our project partners and our clients.
- And finally, you will most definitely need to be able to communicate effectively in English, both written and verbally. This one’s important.
We'll offer you:
The opportunity to influence how we design and develop the public realm, and transportation networks in cities across the Australia and New Zealand. Work with a talented, passionate team that is genuinely trying to make a positive difference. No matter what your background, we offer opportunities and flexibility that few of our competitors can match.
- The potential to develop as a transport/planning professional and advance in a company that prefers to promote from within
- The opportunity to collaborate with people working in other specialty areas: transport planning, public transit design, and economics
- Competitive salary
- A workplace that practices what it preaches
You'll be part of our urban design team, integrating our transportation projects into the fabric of the community and making the travel experience better for all users. This includes:
- Cycleway network planning
- Cycleway design and design guidelines
- Transport/land use integration
- Transit oriented development and neighbourhood design
