About The Role
As a Traffic Order Officer, you’ll support the team that’s delivering engineering and transportation projects ranging from minor improvements to £multi-million infrastructure projects. Think charging points for electric cars. More bike lanes. A better walking network. Improved public transport infrastructure. This role will enable you to make a tangible difference to our diverse communities by helping us make our transport network healthy, clean, green, safe and accessible. You’ll also be part of a supportive team with clear values centred around curiosity, making things happen, seeing the bigger picture, collaborating and achieving positive outcomes.
You’ll have a pivotal role to play in enabling schemes and works on our highway network to go ahead on schedule – your core responsibility will be preparing and implementing all Traffic Management Orders, whether they’re temporary, experimental or permanent. You’ll also handle any related processes as well as taking responsibility for drafting orders and preparing statutory documents efficiently and accurately.
You will also deal with enquiries and correspondence, undertake consultations and attend meetings. You will liaise with stakeholders to discuss any requirements for traffic orders and traffic management and advise on matters relating to traffic and highway law.
We’re looking for self-motivated individual with an eye for detail. A knowledge of key issues relating to parking and traffic regulation is essential, including traffic sign and road marking design and legislation. You should have some budget management experience too, and excellent IT and communication skills. Experience in the use of GIS-based computer software would be advantageous.
You should have experience in an administrative team role, have a customer-orientated attitude and the ability to communicate complex and technical information in an understandable way. You will need to be well organised, methodical, and able to complete tasks to deadlines.
No formal educational qualifications are required for this role if all essential Role Profile provisions are met.
