Highway Asset Officer
Devon County Council
We are recruiting a full-time Highway Asset Officer. The role involves assisting with the quantification of work programmes for highway maintenance and highway structural maintenance projects, assisting with auditing highway maintenance and other contracts to ensure compliance with DCC contract conditions and specifications; and maintaining awareness of technical developments and good working practice.
Our roads are essential to accessing Devon’s beautiful natural environment, but what is just as essential is keeping that environment clean. We process 350,000 tonnes of waste each year, and that number is only going to grow along with the county’s population.
Devon has the longest road network in the country, we:
have 3,500 bridges
maintain over 8,000 miles of road
fill over 200,00 potholes a year
Being able to get from A to B and live in a clean environment without waste are among the most essential things for any resident, and as such we have a range of dedicated teams working to make this a reality.
