What is your career background?
I was a site foreman in the private sector before joining the council about five years ago as a C1 Driver / General Operative with the water division. I moved to the Traffic Management division and then a foreman role came up, which I successfully applied for.
What does your role involve?
In the Traffic Management division, the foreman role includes looking after signage and traffic lights and traffic management during special events.
Why should someone consider a career with a local authority?
Job security is important and the hours are good. There are opportunities to climb the ladder, I hope I will get the chance to progress to Supervisor in a few years. There are lots of training opportunities too - I got my CPCs for driving, First Aid, etc. As well as that – every day is different which I enjoy!
