Further information

The position of Drainage Engineer has become available in the Sustainable Drainage Team.
As a team we promote the use of SuDS and have many years of experience in surface water flood risk and sustainable drainage.
Peterborough is an Environment Capital and growth city which means we work closely with developers and their consultants ensuring SuDS are utilised wherever possible, showing them the need for innovation and supporting them through the design and planning process.
The main duties and responsibilities of the post are:
• To work as part of the team ensuring that Peterborough meets its requirements under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 and the Highways Act 1980.
• To work alongside colleagues in the Sustainable Drainage Team and the Highway Control Team carrying out; inspections and adoptions of development-led drainage works; land drainage consents; approval of drainage strategies; vetting, inspection and adoption of surface water drainage systems including sustainable drainage systems (SuDS).
• To provide statutory consultation responses for planning applications.

The successful candidate will be practised in assessing flood risk assessments and surface water strategies, have excellent communication skills (both oral and written), and be good at planning, organising and prioritising their workload.
Working closely with the Local Highway Authority we assist in the adoption of highway SuDS so experience and knowledge of the Highways Act 1980 would be of benefit to the successful candidate.
For an informal discussion about the role, please call Andrew Leadbetter, Sustainable Drainage Manager on 01733 453446.
