We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to become part of the Highways Team. 

The Highways Team within Streetscene requires a Drainage Engineer to join the Lead Local Flood Authority (LLFA). You will assist in the delivery of the LLFA statutory duties and functions under the Flood and Water Management Act 2010 and the Flood Risk Regulations 2009.

Under the responsibility of the LLFA you will be required to undertake a statutory consultee role providing technical advice on surface water drainage to local planning authorities on developments in Hackney. You will prepare and maintain the strategy for local flood risk management, coordinating views and activity with other Risk Management Authorities (RMA) and communities through consultation and engagement. 

Day to day you will carry out works including funding applications to manage local flood risks, maintain the flood assets register, investigate significant local flooding incidents and preparation of Section 19 reports, whilst undertaking SuDS design and supervision construction works.

Hackney is one of the UK’s highest performing local authorities, serving one of London’s best places to live and work. We have achieved a huge amount: our services, our schools, our public spaces are all amongst the very best. We have changed the reputation, not just of the Council, but of Hackney itself. Bringing jobs and investment into the borough, securing the legacy from the 2012 Games, and making this a place of which we can all be proud.

When applying, it is essential that you include a supporting statement, addressing how your skills, knowledge and experience meet all aspects of the post, as indicated in the job description and person specification.

The recruitment process is anonymous. Please ensure that you do not include your name on any of your supporting documents or on the file attachments.

Closing date for applications: 29 November 2020

Interview date: 07 and 08 December 2020

We are also working towards our vision, which is to be a place for everyone; where residents and staff can be proud; a place that celebrates diversity and where everyone can feel valued, included and involved. In order to achieve this, we look for people who are: Proud; Ambitious; Pioneering; Open; Proactive; Inclusive.

Hackney Council works to eradicate discrimination on the basis of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy and maternity, age and marital status. We also recognise that people can be disadvantaged by their social and economic circumstances, so we will also work to eliminate discrimination and disadvantage caused by social class. We also welcome those interested in flexible working. We particularly welcome applications from disabled people, as this group is currently under represented in our workforce.
