It was a pleasure welcoming onboard 2 new members of staff to our Manchester Office – Stephen Heritage joins us as an Associate Director who is an experienced Transport Planner and Project Manager with more than 25 years’ international experience across the transport sector. He has managed and led the technical delivery of projects in a range of fields including transport strategy, major infrastructure design (particularly airports), development planning, and transport network planning and traffic engineering design.
He began his journey in the transport industry at the University of Lancaster where he earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Geography. A couple of years later, he obtained a Master’s degree in Transport Planning and Engineering from the University of Leeds. Stephen spent a considerable part of his career in the Far East, based in Hong Kong. During that time, he worked on a range of transport strategy, infrastructure & design, and development planning projects in multiple countries across Asia. Since his return to the UK, he has taken on senior leadership roles in transport planning and strategy in both Greater Manchester and South Yorkshire for public and private sector clients.
Stephen will be supporting the renewable energy and development planning teams, along with a business development role to help diversify and expand SCP’s project portfolio in conjunction with the wider RSK group.
Naomi joins us as Bid Co-ordinator, an exciting new role developed to concentrate on tenders as SCP expands. At her last role at Historic England, Naomi supported the project management of their High Street Heritage Action Zone which was aimed at regenerating historic high streets across England.
The bulk of her experience is in Higher Education, having worked at the University of Salford for 5 years from supporting the introduction of their business incubator aimed at developing student and graduate businesses, to working within the Research & Enterprise team supporting academics undertaking consultancy work from pipeline to contract.
Despite the brew round increasing, we are excited and looking forward to pooling their skill set and bathing in their wealth of experience!
