Hartlepool is a vibrant and energetic town with growing prospects. As an authority we want to make Hartlepool the best it possibly can be and want dedicated, driven and committed staff to help us achieve that.
We are looking to recruit a dynamic and motivated individual to help drive forward the Council’s Road Safety and Sustainable Travel ambitions. This is an exciting and challenging post that will have varied responsibilities, from overseeing our Bikeability, Child Pedestrian Training and School Crossing Patrol services, to promoting and developing Sustainable and Active Travel in Hartlepool.
Key elements of the post will include developing the Council’s sustainable travel policy and delivery, linking closely with government policies, Local Transport Plan aims and objectives, and the Tees Valley Combined Authority Strategic Transport Plan. The post will also require experience in delivering capital infrastructure schemes, submitting bid documents for external funding, liaising with partner organisations, monitoring and evaluation, and report writing.
