Following the retirement of the previous post holder, NYCC is seeking to appoint an exceptional Team Leader for its Road Safety & Active Travel Team. This challenging but rewarding role requires strong organisational skills and strategic thinking coupled with the technical knowledge and abilities necessary to lead a team of motivated and experienced practitioners who are located around England’s largest county.

Partnership working with other directorates, neighbouring authorities, external stakeholders and private and commercial organisations are all part of this role, so strong people skills are essential.  In particular, familiarity with Public Health priorities and ways of working is required as much of the team’s work is jointly funded with Public Health.

In addition, the successful candidate should have demonstrable experience in budget management, procurement and managing contracts as well as in planning data led and cost effective in-house service delivery.  Creativity in seeking and securing funding to support the service is also an essential part of the role.
