About the role:


Our Highways team aims to provide a high quality road network for the region. By ensuring our highways are safe for the public, we help make Central Bedfordshire a great place to work and live. As a Highways Senior Technician – North, you’ll make a big contribution. You will liaise with town and parish councils, local councillors, assess highway issues and raise task orders for repairs. Identifying and delivering improvement works for the area will also be key. Give local people an outstanding highway network to enable you to find your greatness.


Across Central Bedfordshire, thousands of residents, businesses and visitors use our roads every day. You’ll make sure they get a good experience, whether they’re walking, driving or cycling. The first step is to be responsible for what is happening on the highway network in your area. You’ll be the primary point of contact for elected members and town and parish councils for your area.  You will assist the Highway Custodian with the management of the Council’s highway asset to ensure that the resources available are used to maintain the asset in the optimum way. To make sure we’re working efficiently, you’ll monitor the performance of highway contract procedures and check they comply with rules.


You’ve worked in highways maintenance before, so you’re used to dealing with contracts, works and customers. You build good working relationships, drawing on strong communication skills. You also ensure Health & Safety is paramount at all times. You will be IT-literate and a natural problem solver. 


Join us and take advantage of our rewards package and the chance to learn and progress. Be part of our team and find your greatness by giving our communities exceptional roads.
