Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council prides itself on being a great place to work where staff are trusted, valued and supported to make a positive contribution at work.
In the Northeast of England and part of the wider Tees Valley sub-region, Stockton is a world class location that offers a great place to live and work. Stocktons vision for growth is based on capitalising on our outstanding assets of excellent transport links, a highly qualified local workforce, high achieving schools, good quality residential areas and a fantastic quality of life.

You will play a pivotal role in our vision by leading a multi-disciplined team of professionals responsible for the effective management of the Boroughs highway infrastructure assets, including highways, footways, street lighting and bridges and structures.  You will be responsible for developing and delivering a long-term infrastructure asset management plan, effectively utilising the available budgets, ensuring a periodical review of the appropriate policies and strategies and effective management and monitoring of the condition of the assets.  We are looking for an experienced, customer focussed person who has the skills, knowledge, and proven credibility to build relationships with key stakeholders and organisations across the Tees Valley and beyond.

This role provides an excellent opportunity for the right candidate to join a very successful highways and transport team who are keen to explore and implement new and innovative solutions and wants to make a difference to the local community.
In return we offer an excellent total reward package, including:

• A competitive salary of up to £47,420.
• Flexible working arrangements – working onsite at our main office in central Stockton, at our other Council buildings within the Borough (where appropriate), and the ability to work some of your time from home.
• 27 days annual leave per year rising to 32 with 5 years’ service and the ability to purchase additional leave.
• Generous Pension Scheme through the LGPS with ability to pay extra and plan for retirement
• Access to a number of employee benefits including an employee counselling service, physiotherapy, salary sacrifice car lease scheme and more.
