In this role you will provide a legal service throughout Highways and Transport for Surrey by promoting and producing both temporary and permanent Traffic Regulation Orders to support the Services Capital and Revenue Highway budgets and to support a wide range of outside agencies. You will produce legal documents to agreed timescales and generally give legal advice to a wide range of engineers and members.

You will need a good knowledge of Traffic Management techniques and current legislation, including detailed knowledge of the Road Traffic Regulation Act and its corresponding procedural guides. Up to date knowledge of Traffic Regulation Orders and the ability to produce legal articles for these Orders will also be required.
