If you like being out and about in the fresh air during the day, in a work environment where no two days are the same, then this could be the job for you.
You will be joining a dedicated and professional team who help to keep traffic flowing across our borough. Though you are part of a team, each day you will be making your own decisions in a variety of situations.
The job has its challenges but dealing with these brings the reward of knowing that you have done a good job and that you are making a real difference and offering an important benefit to the community.
No previous experience is necessary, you will receive full and comprehensive training to carry out your work. What we do ask for is a can-do attitude, good judgement skills and a sense of fairness and attention to detail.
You will find yourself in regular contact with members of the public who will be asking for your help with many different questions, not just about parking, but also about where places and attractions are and how to get there. A commitment to providing great customer service and good communication skills are essential.
Though you will be part of a fully supported team who you will have direct communications with throughout the day, generally you will be patrolling by yourself, on foot or in a vehicle and you will need to be resilient and comfortable with working on your own initiative.
When on foot, you will cover a number of miles each day, so you will need to have a reasonable level of fitness.
You will normally work 7.4 hours a day, 5 days a week which will include regular weekend working. Daily shifts normally take place between 7.30am and 7pm on a two-week cycle.
