About the role

To assist with the operation and co-ordination of Activities and traffic management across the City. Working with the Traffic Manager/ Senior Permit Co-ordinator in accordance with the New Roads and Street Works and Traffic Management Acts in order to improve movement of traffic within the City.

We work with a range of internal and external stakeholders to deliver a range of services, and therefore our work is varied with no two days ever being the same.

We are seeking committed, resilient and well organised team player to join our friendly team.

You will be responsible for Abnormal Load movements, permit fee invoicing, and reporting damaged apparatus in the highway to the relevant asset owner, whilst maintaining accurate and up to date records on all of these things and ensuring that we comply with current legislation. Full training is given, and this will suit a well organised person with good attention to detail.
