About the Team

You will join a team of 3 experienced Street Lighting Maintenance Officers who provide specialist knowledge and results in the operational maintenance of street lighting assets across the whole of Lincolnshire.

The Maintenance Team sits within a larger Lighting, Signs and CAD Team who are a supportive team of 16 with a wealth of experience and pride between them.

About the Role

You will contribute towards the excellent work carried out by the team that reactively ensures street lighting assets are working well. The team strive to keep customer complaints to a minimum by liaising throughout the timeframe of an enquiry to resolve it efficiently.

You will interact with Colleagues, Clients, the Public, and the Contractor to deliver maintenance projects within agreed timeframes.  You will assist to resolve faults that the Contractor has been unable to easily resolve. We provide a range of street lighting services where we provide the customer with a quotation for works; such as moving columns due to home improvements and driveway widening.
