Senior Structures Engineer
Kent County Council Highways Transportation and Waste are looking to expand their Structures Asset Management Team. This is an ideal time to play a major part in developing the future and their response to the development of asset management.
The Structures team are part of the Highways Asset Management business unit who inspect, repair and maintain KCC highways to keep them safe and provide the best highway service to Kent’s residents, visitors and businesses, whilst co-ordinating activities on the highway to minimise disruption to road users and facilitate utility services. They do this by balancing asset management principles, local operational needs and available resource.
We are looking to recruit a Senior Structures Engineer to provide engineering support for maintenance of highway structures, liaising and working closely across KCC. The post holder will provide project management, technical design and advice, along with associated financial control and administrative tasks.
This full-time role will be primarily based in KCC’s Ashford Henwood depot but travel within Kent will be expected to meet the demands of the job.
If you have the ability to succeed in this role and are able to prioritise competing demands and objectives, coupled with diplomacy and experience of managing projects in a complex environment, you could be the person we are looking for.
In return we offer a generous pension, extensive training opportunities and a flexible approach to working.
In the current climate staff are working from home or in reduced occupancy and Covid-assessed offices. Computers are provided to facilitate the safest environment possible whilst ensuring the continuation of the business needs.
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.
