You will be responsible for an area where you will manage, coordinate and deliver Highways and Transport projects and work closely with members to ensure obstacles are overcome.
If you’re a confident communicator, then this could be just the role for you, as you will be the direct link between the County Council and the elected Members. You must be able to build strong, professional relationships with a variety of people from many different backgrounds and offer guidance and support to Members on major projects and operational issues.
Our County Liaison Officers also liaise with other external key stakeholders such as the emergency services, MPs, members of the public and you may be required to attend stakeholder forums.

The successful candidate will be part of a friendly, supportive and welcoming team comprising seven County Liaison Officers who report to a Principal Liaison Officer. Together, you will help to deliver and support key projects within Worcestershire.
If you have a real ‘can do’ attitude, enjoy travelling throughout our beautiful county and thrive on problem solving and communicating in a timely and clear way, then we’d love to hear from you.
