About the role
Your role will involve a variety of tasks making no two days the same! You could be in the office or out making site visits. You will communicate with a wide range of the community to consult on changes to the road network including parking restrictions and new parking schemes and to develop your understanding of the pressures from different users on the road network whilst considering the council’s carbon neutrality strategy.
As a core member of the Parking Design and Implementation Team, you will learn how our parking and services support and serve a wide range of residents and businesses in the city. For example, processing disabled bay applications and liaising with the disabled car users’ group. Providing day-to-day team support, you will have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of project administration, customer service and engineering delivery that will improve our city both now and in the future.
The Traffic Technician role is a brand-new role and a career graded role meaning as your skills develop you can be moved up a pay grade. You will work across the 3 teams within Parking Design and Implementation which will give you an excellent understanding of the whole team’s work and place you in a great position for future progression.

What I love most about my job are the people I work with, and the freedom to create a way of working that works best for me. I have always loved that our manager did not micro-manage, and I’ve proven that they don’t need to.
The team I work with has a great atmosphere; joining them was the best decision I’ve made for my career and I look forward to the challenges ahead!
