You will be dealing with parking issues including tackling inconsiderate and dangerous parking.

Following formal training and shadowing on patrol, you’ll be expected to issue notices for parking contraventions, littering and dog fouling.

You’ll need to be happy patrolling district-wide in all weathers.

Applicants will need the literacy skills to issue PCNs for civil offences and to complete relevant documents, however no formal qualifications are required.
