Transport, Traffic and Parking Services Business Manager

£43,360 - £48,602

These are busy and changing times in Sheffield’s transport world as the city’s Highways Maintenance PFI contract, the largest in the country, gets under way.

We need a Business Manager to step in to our restructured traffic and transport team to help meet the challenges of the PFI and the Council’s Vision for Excellent Transport in Sheffield -- reflecting the aspirations of residents in England’s fourth largest city.

Our Transport and Traffic teams design and deliver a programme of key schemes to drive forward the city’s regeneration. Parking Services is rolling out a major programme of resident parking permit schemes and mobile enforcement of traffic offences.

A recent successful Better Buses bid, new moves towards an integrated bus network plus our Local Sustainable Transport Fund initiatives provide grounds for optimism about what can be achieved.

Our Business Manager will:

- Monitor and manage the Transport, Traffic and Parking Services Division’s revenue and capital budgets

- Assist the Head of Service in directing the Council’s Parking Service

- Lead our response to Corporate initiatives and service wide process reviews and help deliver a customer focussed service

- Manage the Council’s Public Rights of Way and Land Drainage and Flood Risk Management Groups

We particularly welcome applications from women as they are under-represented in this area of work: Section 158 of the Equality Act 2010 applies and from ethnic minority communities as they are under-represented in this area of work:  Section 158 of the Equality Act 2010 applies.

Sheffield City Council is an equal opportunities employer and has publicly committed to this by signing up to the “Two Ticks – Positive About Disabled People” scheme. This ensures that all disabled applicants, able to demonstrate that they meet the minimum criteria of the job description are guaranteed an interview.

It is not enough to tick that you are disabled on the monitoring form, if you are disabled and feel this applies to you, please let us know by quoting:-  “I am eligible for a guaranteed interview under the two ticks scheme” on your application form at the bottom of the “Suitability for the Job” section. Please make sure this is written as a separate paragraph to make sure it does not get lost in the content of your application.

Due to the level of organisational change within the Council, all vacancies that are advertised may be withdrawn at any stage if matched with an employee who is being made redundant.  This not only mitigates a redundancy but helps the Council to retain talent.  You will be notified directly if this happens and you have submitted an application.
