Senior airport / aviation planner

Job Profile

From the $5 billion project to upgrade Los Angeles International Airport where we were the lead engineer for two of the three main components, to our recent appointment by The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey to lead the implementation of the Governor's Airport Advisory Panel’s vision plan for the redevelopment of John F. Kennedy Airport (JFK). Mott MacDonald is flying the flag for the US aviation industry across the breadth of the country.

Due to major aviation project wins, we’re now looking to welcome a senior airport planner to our expanding team to solve intriguing and complex challenges. Going forward you'll have the potential to work on projects anywhere in the world.

Job Description

The consultancy services Mott MacDonald provides primarily consist of aviation engineering design and planning.

Primary responsibilities may include but are not limited to the following:
  • Airport masterplanning and phasing;
  • Airport planning and design including secondary systems;
  • Specialist planning studies (safeguarding, airspace & air navigation services);
  • Airfield simulation modelling tools;
  • Mentoring and coordination of specialist teams;
  • Attending client meetings and engaging with stakeholders;
  • Development of programmes/resource spreadsheets for the delivery of our services.
You have access to our connected network of 16,000 people and, of course, our strong global aviation practice. Our mission is to always connect globally, seek and open opportunities for clients and continue supporting the amazing growth of the aviation sector globally. We’re looking for this role to be based with our teams in our NYC office, but may consider another US Mott MacDonald office for the right candidate. Our NYC office is based in the heart of Midtown, only a couple of blocks from Penn Station.
