If you could make new connections, where would you take us?

Birmingham is a city on the move. Join our Transport Services team and you can go further too. We’re a city that leads the way. And at Birmingham City Council, we’re investing a billion pounds in game-changing transportation projects. From HS2 to Birmingham Airport, we’re growing bigger and better. Together, we can keep millions connected for years to come.

Juggling multiple projects and services, your focus will be on quality control. Assisting our Transport Delivery experts, you can expect to be closely involved in the development, design, implementation and handover of diverse transport projects. We’ll look to you to keep a close eye on contractual conditions, budgets and timescales and to undertake specification and material checks. Identifying site technical problems and recommending solutions will also be part of your work. 

You have extensive experience in implementing civil engineering highway works. Practised in inspecting, recording and reporting on construction projects, you are used to assessing temporary traffic management solutions. Knowledge of current design and construction standards and specifications is essential, and you have strong health and safety awareness. You should hold a CSCS card, NRSWA, IOSH, LANTRA 12D (M7) or equivalent.

Thrive in an environment that promotes diversity and inclusivity, healthy lifestyle choices, wellbeing and balance. We’ll empower you to be the best you can be, with coaching, mentoring and training programmes that meet your professional and personal development needs at every stage of your career with us.

We also offer:

  • Family friendly policies.
  • A range of benefits, including membership of the West Midlands Pension Fund, discounted gym membership and a confidential employee assistance programme.
  • 29 days’ annual leave increasing with length of service, plus the option to purchase additional days.
 

You must upload a CV and Supporting Statement via the miscellaneous attachment on to your application. This is required for shortlisting; you need to describe how your experience and skills fit the essential criteria for the role as specified in the Person Specification. If you do not attach your Supporting Statement, your application will not be considered.

Closing date 30 October - 12 Noon - Applications will be shortlisted weekly
