This post is restricted to permanent and temporary employees of South Gloucestershire Council only.

We have 3 full time and 1 part time post.

South Gloucestershire is the fastest growing region in the South West. We believe the public realm of highways and open spaces should make a positive difference to our lives and help to deliver homes, jobs and better opportunities for all.

How you’ll make a difference

In this exciting role you will make a difference by contributing to protecting and enhancing our natural and historic sites and you will play a crucial role in keeping our streets and open spaces safe, accessible and enjoyable to use all day every day.

You will help showcase South Gloucestershire as a great place to live, work and play for residents, workers and visitors.
What will you be doing?

It will be your job to manage, investigate and respond to day to day enquiries received from the public regarding all Council assets. Such assets including open spaces, property, highways and closed churchyards. You will be working closely with Town and Parish Councils, community groups, MPs, Council Members and the general public.

No two days will be the same. You will be out and about most of the day, every day, working mainly within your designated area to keep roads and footways, parks and open spaces, drainage systems and verges safe to use. On occasion you may be asked to cover other Officer areas and work outside of normal office times.

What we need from you:

You will have a broad and detailed knowledge and understanding of all council matters.

You will be a confident communicator that can influence and explain technical issues with others sometimes in challenging circumstances.

You must have good literacy and numeracy skills and be able to interpret complex data and information.

You will be able to prioritise high volumes of work to work independently and also more widely as part of the team.

You will have a full drivers licence and have the ability to work in all conditions and environments.
