Fast‐track your Career at Swindon Borough Council

Swindon is a vibrant and dynamic town with big plans for growth. The Borough is 89 square miles in area, and currently home to about 220,000 people.  We are ranked in the top 10 most highly innovative areas in the UK and are seeking to reflect this level of innovation in the way we deliver Council services. We are making a major investment in our services to ensure that we can continue to plan positively for Swindon’s growth, to deliver high quality design and maintain a competitive and productive economy.

You will be responsible for providing an effective service covering all aspects of Highway Agreements across the Borough. Your role will focus mainly on Technical Approval of Highway Works which can range from a pedestrian crossing to major infrastructure delivery for urban extensions.  Your advice will be required from initial enquiry through the Technical Approval and adoption process. You will be responsible for the Technical Approval of works, inspection of works, and the adoption of new transportation assets.

You will lead on examining and assessing S38/S278 technical submissions, and provide formal responses on behalf of the Highway Authority. Working within the national guidelines, contributing and developing Swindon’s own development standards you will deal with a range of projects varying in size and implications. Your supervision of inspections of Highway assets will ensure that records are compiled in accordance with Council policies. 

This role will involve partnership working across service areas, in particular with Highways & Transport, Planning, Law and Democratic Services, and developers in the context of detailed design approvals and inspection of new transport infrastructure. 

In return we can offer a competitive salary, flexible working hours, a great working environment and a chance to be part of a service that offers excellent career prospects.
Candidates must be fluent in the English language (as a requirement of Part 7 of the Immigration Act – for the effective performance of a customer‐facing role).
