Helping you find a career in the transport industry
On a very basic level, transport involves getting people, or things, from point A to point B. When people think of this industry they see long-haul truckers or maybe a taxi driver. However, teams of staff are needed across all modes of transport including rail, air, sea and roads, to ensure they are managed safely.
Transport routes don't just appear by magic, they need to be carefully planned and then approved before they can be built. The routes also need to be maintained to make sure that they can support future generations.
Transport planners have to be savvy about policies, sustainability issues and have a head for numbers.
Over the next five years more than £61 billion has been allocated to improving different transportation links within the UK, through projects such as HS2 and the A14 road upgrade, so it's a valuable time to get into the industry.
To execute these projects, the transport industry relies on talented engineers, designers, project managers and logistics experts. No matter what your skill set is, there will be a role available for you in transport.
