Highways Asset Manager

About the role
We are looking for a talented Highways Asset Manager to maximise the life of our client's Highway assets as the council continues to grow and harness the almost unlimited potential of future technological advances.

In this role, you will be leading an asset data led approach to manage the development and maintenance of the multi million pound Annual and long term plans, including the co-ordination and development of asset inventory data for all assets, condition data, deterioration modelling, lifecycle plans, whole-life costs and service levels to meet national standards.

You will develop, monitor and review our Asset Management Policies and Strategies and ensure that appropriate data is collected and interpreted in a timely manner to influence decisions and support a proactive performance management culture. The role is key in ensuring the long-term planning of the authority’s highways assets; owning, developing and ensuring we deliver the requirements of our Highway Asset Management Framework, Highway Asset Management Strategy; Highway Asset Management Policy; Highway Asset Management Plan (which will replace the NMMP); and Highway Asset Management Procedures, supplemented by Acts of Parliament, Statutory Instruments, Regulations, codes of practice and standing orders.

Your team will be responsible for ensuring that Central Bedfordshire Council's highways assets are managed to deliver our strategic priorities and service needs effectively to our residents and be instrumental in championing asset management, planning and pavement management principles across the wider Highways service. You will undertake the effective allocation, monitoring and reporting of budgets associated with the planned maintenance of highway assets. Working in partnership with our contractors, you will identify opportunities and plans that will be quality focused resulting in reduced costs and increased efficiencies.

About you
As the successful candidate, you’ll have extensive experience within the Highways and Transport sector, together with developed knowledge and understanding of Asset Management software, industry codes of practice, processes and procedures. You’ll be a commercially driven leader who can deliver this service and fully integrate principles of whole life asset planning.

As an excellent communicator you’ll work collaboratively across the Highways department as well as other relevant CBC departments, with elected members, contractors and other stakeholders to deliver positive outcomes. As the Highways Asset Manager you’ll manage, coach and develop a team of technical staff, providing clear direction and support and to enable individuals to achieve their potential and deliver effective business results. You will have proven technical experience in a highway or civil engineering related field with evidence of continuous professional development and industry related knowledge in the highway environment.
