A flexible approach is necessary across all tasks within the team and you will be required to assimilate specialist knowledge in various areas.

As well as being allocated projects you will oversee and allocate specific works projects to others as they arise. At times you will be required to prepare reports on procedures, deal with complaints and gather relevant information to support any action being taken by the authority. Occasionally, you will be expected to travel to meetings and lead or support team members at meetings on works projects. You will convene team performance meetings, arrange training and encourage and mentor team members to achieve common goals. You will ensure your team works in support of the County Council’s declared strategic objectives while always demonstrating integrity and professionalism.
