This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic individual to play a key role developing and overseeing the implementation of a residents parking scheme in Weston-super-Mare. We are looking for an individual with experience in delivery of on-street parking schemes.


Candidates will need experience of coordinating the work of others from a mixture of disciplines and communicating with stakeholders.  Ideally you will have recent experience in a similar role. Experience of communicating effectively with internal and external stakeholders including residents is essential as are strong organisational skills. This post presents an opportunity for someone keen to make their mark in a challenging yet rewarding area of work.


Responsibilities include:
