To be successful in this role, you will bring:

  • Technical and practical experience in Asset Management, pavement design, maintenance and renewals practices, knowledge and understanding of delivering best value solutions within a constrained budget
  • An understanding of forward works programmes and experience of balancing competing priorities within forward works programmes (desirable)
