The Central Transportation Planning Staff (CTPS) of the Boston Region Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is seeking an experienced and innovative transportation professional to lead its Certification Activities Group, which is responsible for conducting the MPO's 3C planning process and related activities and programs; producing the MPO's three required certification documents, the Long-Range Transportation Plan, Transportation Improvement Program, and Unified Planning Work Program; and providing technical, administrative, and logistical support to the MPO and its committees.
CTPS was created to develop a permanent resource of expertise in comprehensive, multimodal transportation planning and analysis. CTPS promotes interagency cooperation, ensures consistency among planning efforts, reduces redundancy, and fills gaps in the capabilities of MPO members—thus enabling the MPO's 3C (and related) work for member agencies to be accomplished efficiently and effectively.
The successful applicant will excel in the following:
The candidate must have a master’s degree in planning, public policy, or a related field. A candidate with at least nine years of relevant professional experience (or 12 years of relevant experience with a bachelor’s degree) and at least five years of experience managing or supervising a staff as a group manager or project manager on large complex projects is strongly preferred. An otherwise qualified candidate with less than nine years of experience in a related field must be prepared to make a case for why other experience or skills substitute for the requirement. Proficiency in Microsoft Word and Excel is required. Experience working with one or more of the three required certification documents is preferred.
All candidates must have legal authorization to work in the USA. The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is the fiduciary agent for CTPS and legally employs its staff. MAPC and CTPS are Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action (EEO/AA) employers that take pride in the diversity of their workforces and encourage all qualified persons to apply.
