Traffic Orders Officer
Exciting things are happening here in Hounslow. We’re embarking upon a major programme of change to modernise how we work and reduce our carbon footprint. Our diverse team is finding all sorts of ways to make our borough an even better place to be for our residents and visitors alike. And by helping to make this a prosperous, healthy, accessible and safe environment for all, our Capital Projects team is right at the heart of it.
As a Traffic Orders Administrator, 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. Greater accessibility for those with mobility needs. 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.
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.
We’ll also want to see the enthusiasm, ambition and skills to deliver a green recovery, help tackle the Climate Emergency, protect the environment and enable us to deliver on our Transport Strategy. You’re someone who can support the delivery of the innovative projects that are part of the programme.
We’re based in Hounslow House, a new landmark building located in Hounslow town centre. Our investment in new technology enables our teams to work remotely and flexibly giving everyone a better work/life balance. We also offer excellent career development, an inclusive culture and a whole range of generous benefits. All in a visionary borough like no other.
