This is an exceptional opportunity for someone interested in sharing in the operation and maintenance of the historic Cross Keys Swing Bridge at Sutton Bridge. The listed bridge, built in 1897, carries the A17 over the River Nene and opens to allow the passage of commercial and other river vessels to and from the Port of Wisbech.
Duties not only include operating the bridge, but also routine maintenance and cleaning of the structure. Therefore, the position requires a confidence in working over water and at heights and an ability to access constrained areas using ladders and hatches.
The position requires a self-motivated, self-reliant individual, who is able to demonstrate an intelligent common sense approach to problems and communicate effectively with colleagues, members of the public and contractors.
However, as well as living within 10 miles of the bridge and being part of the call out service, the right person will need to work an anti-social shift pattern. For the majority of the time this will be on your own, sharing the 24 hour staffing of the bridge with three other operators. You will also need to cover leave and other absences, for which appropriate overtime payments will be made. The shift pattern (including night shift options) and call out arrangements are given in the Appendix to the job description.
As well as being required to have four GCSE's (or equivalent) at C or above, some understanding of mechanical, electrical and hydraulic systems is required. Experience in traffic management and VHF radio operation would be advantageous, although training will be given to the successful candidate in any areas where a need is identified. Normal operation of the bridge is done using a computer system, and so at least basic IT skills are required.

If - after reading the job description - you wish to have an informal discussion about the post and its duties please telephone John Monk on 01522 782070.
