An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Road and Footway Asset Team as an Asset Engineer.

This key post plays a vital role in the management of our road and footway pavement assets. As a team we deliver around 350 road and footway renewal and preservation schemes, along with associated works each year, with this amount expected to grow in the future.

You will be expected to manage these schemes from identification, through design and planning to construction. You may also need to lead on or assist with the repair of significant road and footway asset failures when they occur.

You should be able to demonstrate evidence of experience of asset management, highway engineering and maintenance. However, it is equally important that you have excellent people, communication and customer service skills, together with a ‘can do’ approach. This is an excellent opportunity for a self-motivated individual, looking to broaden their experience, during a time when the authority is seeking to further embed the use of asset management in its management of highway maintenance.

This post is considered by KCC to be a customer-facing position. The Council therefore has a statutory duty under Part 7 of the Immigration Act (2016) to ensure that post holders have a command of spoken English/Welsh sufficient for the effective performance of the job requirements. The appropriate standards are set out in the Job Description/Person Specification.
