Roadworks Inspector (office based)

Southwark, London SE1

£32,500 plus substantial benefits

You’ll keep London moving

London’s road network is as complex as any around the world. At TfL, it’s our job to ensure any works on them balance disruption with efficiency – while maintaining the utmost safety. It’s no small task, considering we receive over 88,000 permit applications each year. But, as an office based Roadworks Inspector, it’s one you’ll thrive on as you bring an extra dimension to our experienced team.

Instead of travelling to roadworks, you’ll be able to do the majority of inspections from the comfort of our Southwark office. You’ll review thousands of roadworks reports sent by other operational TfL staff and the Met Police and use hundreds of CCTV cameras around the capital, making sure roadworks are safe, compliant with permit conditions and causing minimum disruption and inconvenience to our customers.

You’ll learn skills that will elevate your future potential

Day-to-day, you’ll analyse and process roadworks intelligence. You’ll collaborate with other TfL teams, the Metropolitan Police, third parties and highway authorities to keep traffic moving – and start enforcement actions if necessary. There’ll also be times when you will have to check things in person, to ensure compliance.

As well as developing your technical skills on our state-of-the-art Automatic Road Network Monitoring (ARNM) system that uses video analytics to assess roadworks activity 24/7, there’ll be ample opportunity to bring new thinking to our approach. In turn, you’ll have the chance to test your strong communication skills, write compelling reports about your findings, and influence key stakeholders involved in some of London’s most challenging road network projects.

You’ll be supported every step of the way

With at least a BTEC ONC in Civil Engineering (or equivalent) and either CDM certification or significant work experience – this is a role for an experienced roadworks expert. Someone who understands roadworks inspections and the associated NRSWA framework of regulations and codes of practice. 

It’s also essential that you know your way around electronic transfer of notice (EToN) procedures, Street Works Register systems and personal data capture devices. Used to solving traffic management issues in busy urban environments, you’ll naturally have a full driving licence too – and be comfortable driving cars.

Salary and benefits

The challenges will be varied, urgent and – as someone who takes pride in solving issues – professionally rewarding. But equally, you’ll get a whole range of benefits: from free TfL travel to a contributory pension; generous annual leave to reduced Eurostar and National Rail season tickets. 

Candidates who have previously applied for this role within the last six months should not submit an application on this occasion.
