We are looking to appoint an On-street Parking Co-ordinator to join our Parking Services team.
It will be up to you to deal with customer requests for parking controls, develop proposals, carry out parking consultations, and ensure that the relevant legislation is adhered to throughout. You will write and present committee reports, and produce accurate technical drawings / plans and traffic regulation orders to accompany any parking proposals. We will also look to you to oversee the implementation of parking controls, and ensure that all parking signs and lines comply with TSRGD 2016, as you identify and rectify any issues you encounter.
You will act as the public face of the service as you respond to public enquiries and communicate with councillors and local businesses.
The nature of this role means that we need someone with a clear understanding of relevant highway and parking legislation, policy and controls. Experience of graphical information and parking mapping systems would also be desirable. We need someone with a clear customer service focus as you look to ensure that you maintain the highest standards of service for local people and businesses.
Your communication skills will be crucial as you ensure that all communications are accessible and comprehensive, as well as responding to relevant enquiries. You’ll also have a clear team focus as you support other members of the Parking Services team and across the council. Your confidence and ability in your role will allow you to manage several projects at any one time, work using your own initiative and without instruction.
You must have the ability to travel across the borough to undertake site visits. A licence valid to drive in the UK would be highly desirable.
Guildford Borough Council currently manages over 200 kilometres of on-street parking controls, which includes around 5,000 on-street parking spaces. We also manage around 5,000 off-street public car park spaces, and oversee the enforcement of on-street parking controls in a neighbouring borough, on behalf of Surrey County Council.
We take a huge amount of pride in being a forward-thinking authority that has a genuine customer focus.
We want everyone to feel that they have a bright future here. We want all of our people to be able to see the career pathway that is in front of them. We provide a range of training and development opportunities to help people grow in their roles. We also feel that it is incredibly important to allow people the chance to discover interests, skills and ambitions that they may not have been aware of.
