Highways Enforcement Officer
Devon County Council
A self-motivated and enthusiastic Highways Enforcement Officer is sought by the Traffic Management Group.
The primary role is to ensure the highway asset is safe and available to use so contributing to the expeditious movement of traffic. This involves monitoring legislated compliance of road works activities on Devon’s network and taking enforcement action if necessary.
While solo working is the norm, you act on your own initiative as part of a small team inspecting and reacting to events in your area with supervisory support. You will liaise with utility companies and assess compliance of maintenance contractor’s reinstatements, identifying offences at road work sites and acting on electronic information received.
Our roads are essential to accessing Devon’s beautiful natural environment, but what is just as essential is keeping that environment clean. We process 350,000 tonnes of waste each year, and that number is only going to grow along with the county’s population.
Devon has the longest road network in the country, we:
have 3,500 bridges
maintain over 8,000 miles of road
fill over 200,00 potholes a year
Being able to get from A to B and live in a clean environment without waste are among the most essential things for any resident, and as such we have a range of dedicated teams working to make this a reality.
