Croydon is one of the busiest retail and business centres in the south of England outside of Central London. It has the largest population of any London Borough and its success as a regional centre very much depends upon the way its day-to-day traffic, highway, parking and road safety issues are managed.
We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated and well organised Engineer to work within the Highway Improvement team on the design and implementation of a wide range of traffic, highway and road safety projects.
You will have a degree or ONC/HNC in civil engineering (or equivalent engineering qualification) and be able to demonstrate experience in the design and implementation of traffic and highway schemes. This will require a detailed understanding of design criteria and an understanding of Traffic Management Orders.
The post holder is required to manage his workload with little supervision and to provide stakeholders with a professional and efficient service. You will possess both good project management skills and a proven track record of delivering highway projects on time and to budget.
You must be computer literate and have experience in the use of AutoCad and geographic information systems.
You will also have excellent oral and written skills, the ability to work on your own initiative and be able to represent the section and authority at internal and external meetings. You should also have a current driving licence, or be able to travel quickly and efficiently around the Borough by other means.
This is a key post within the Public Realm Division of the Planning and Environment Department
