Further information

We are seeking to appoint an enthusiastic Officer to work within the Highway Network and Flood Risk Management Team to assist in delivering the authorities street-works permitting scheme.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a team whose objective is to ensure that all work activities carried in the public highway are undertaken in compliance with the New Roads and Street Works Act 1991 (NRSWA), the Traffic Management Act 2004 (TMA), the Traffic Signs and General Directions, the authorities Permit Scheme, any national guidance and Codes of Practice.

The post holder will carry out the inspection and monitoring of all works on site to ensure that they are being undertaken safely and in accordance with the current specification for materials and workmanship in line with current legislation, namely the NRSWA 1991 and the TMA 2004. In addition the post holder will also assist in analysing the permit applications to understand the impact on the highway network, imposing appropriate conditions and variations to ensure a co-ordinated approach and minimising traffic disruption.

To be successful in this role you will have experience within a relevant specialist highway discipline and experience of working with customers, clients and partners. It is essential that you are flexible and willing to learn in a fast evolving environment. You may occasionally be required to attend out of hour’s site visits or meetings. Due to the role requiring frequent travel between venues across the borough, a full driving licence and access to a motor vehicle is required for this role.

Please ensure you refer to the Job Description and the essential and desirable criteria in the Person Specification when completing the Personal Statement on the application form, as this information is used to select candidates for interview.

Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council ensures that all customers, both internal and external receive a consistently high quality level of service.
