The Network Coordination Team within the wider Street Works Team is part of the Network and Asset Management Group. We are responsible for coordinating all the works carried out by both Utility Companies and our own Highways works, across Surrey's busy road network.

You will be proactive in resolving queries, demonstrate parity of approach to all works promoters, be prepared to engage with a variety of stakeholders in carrying out the coordination functions and clearly communicate their decisions. At times this will involve dealing with complaints or challenging situations, requiring good communication and negotiation skills.
