If you have or are looking for a career in Highways, working on the M25 will give you experience and challenge that no other highways project can offer.

Purpose of the role

This role co-ordinates the booking of road space on the M25 and other roads within the Area 5 network to ensure that bookings meet the information quality and time requirements of National Highways  and that opportunities to share road space are maximised.

The role will support other Network Co-ordinators with the Road Space team to ensure that work load is managed efficiently and evenly distributed across the team to manage peaks in workload as well as absence.

The Network Co-ordinators will work closely with a range of stakeholders including CPS Service Delivery, framework contractors and local highway authorities to ensure that regulatory requirements are adhered to and strong relationships are developed and maintained.

  • Participate in weekly road space co-ordination meetings and following up actions where required
  • Develop and maintain strong relationships with all stakeholders

Qualifications/Skills required

We are looking for the following skills and qualities:

  • Methodical and output focussed
  • Flexible and adaptable, responding dynamically to a changing 24/7 operational environment
