Devon County Council’s Traffic Management Group is seeking enthusiastic and self-motivated applicants for Network Coordination Technician posts (5 x full time).
You will work within a team managing various applications from works promoters to perform street works on Devon's highways. You will monitor network activity and legislative compliance dealing with the coordination, assessment, approval and rejection of applications.
Excellent communication and IT skills are necessary as the function is mainly computer based and involves frequent liaison with utility company representatives and their contractors to process applications to ensure the network asset is protected. Some familiarity with legislation related to highways and traffic management will be beneficial, particularly the New Roads & Street Works Act 1991 but not essential. You will process generic applications checking the information provided and resolving any issues before deciding to grant, refuse or modify applications.
A flexible approach is required working within a larger team with Coordination Officers who manage more complex permit and road closure applications. You will develop specialist knowledge in related areas and will be allocated administrative tasks as required within the team including interrogation of systems to identify and deal with offences or assist with performance monitoring and invoicing tasks. At times, you will be required to gather relevant information to assist in responding to customer complaints and at times may be expected to travel to meetings.
