We have a new role waiting for you to join us as an Asset Manager (Carriageways, Footways and Street Furniture).

Suffolk Highways is a collaboration between Kier and Suffolk County Council to meet the primary objective of maintaining roads and delivering new highway infrastructure in Suffolk.

Personnel from both organisations work together in integrated teams as part of an alliance that aspires to be as effective, efficient, respected as possible and at the forefront of highway maintenance and improvement service delivery.

The Infrastructure Management Team comprises 109 staff who are collectively responsible for influencing and embedding highway asset management strategies, the commissioning of annual works programmes and ensuring the safety of the highway network for those living in and visiting Suffolk.

Reporting to the Asset Policy and Commissioning Manager you will be the lead for developing the forward programme of works for the carriageway, footway and street furniture assets in line with the corporate objectives of the council and in conjunction with the latest developments in technology and asset management principles. You will assist the Asset Commissioning and Policy Manager to help develop Suffolk Highways so that it is recognised regionally and nationally as a leading exponent in the delivery of all aspects of local highway infrastructure maintenance and improvement. In addition to this you will assist in providing a responsive service for public enquiries relating to these activities and to ensure that, through Infrastructure Operations (including its supply chain partners), Suffolk County Council is complying with its statutory duty to maintain a safe and serviceable highway network.

This organisation positively encourages the use of technology to communicate and engage, but in this role, you will need to operate across a wide and rural area, so you must either hold a full and current driving licence and have access to personal transport or meet the mobility requirements of the role through other reasonable and suitable means.
