Senior Traffic Engineer (Parking)
Our exclusive client is a highly performing local authority looking for a Senior Engineer to manage a substantial programme of works arising out of the adoption of a new Parking Strategy created in 2016.
You'll work in a busy town with an ambitious range of projects, many of which have implications for traffic and parking management. The Borough is 128 square miles in area and has a population of around 120,000 people, with approximately half living in the town itself. A number of other small towns and villages are spread throughout the district which is predominantly rural in nature.
To be successful in this role you will need to be qualified to degree level and have at least 5 years' experience in traffic engineering and parking management. You will lead a small team, so will have excellent people management skills. Your role will involve a substantial amount of liaison with local residents and businesses, in particular those related to the retail sector, which form an important part of the local economy. You will need to understand the particular issues arising out of a historic town intersected by two major routes and having a main line railway station in the central area.
You will need to be aware of all current related legislation and be proficient in the writing of reports for committee and board meetings, at which you will be expected to attend and present items. You will therefore need excellent communication and presentation skills, with the ability to explain complex technical information in simple terms. These meetings will necessitate some evening working.
