Job Description

We are looking for someone to join and help build a small team at the Office of the Traffic Commissioner. You will provide administrative support to the Traffic Commissioner to enable them to undertake their statutory duties for licensing requirements of vehicles in Wales. This will include processing casework and making arrangements for public inquiries.

You can work effectively within a team or independently under your own initiative. You have the ability to understand and interpret complex legislation with excellent analytical and problem solving skills.

You have a good working knowledge of Microsoft packages including Excel and Word.

Going forward we are committed to encouraging and enabling our staff to develop in and above their role and will support you in undertaking further development opportunities/qualifications.

About Us

There are eight traffic commissioners in Great Britain who are responsible for the regulation of the operator’s licences required by the road freight and passenger transport industries. In October 2016 the Secretary of State for Transport appointed the first full time Welsh Traffic Commissioner. Previously this post had been shared with the Traffic Commissioner for the West Midlands.

Staff in the Office of the Traffic Commissioner provide administrative support to the traffic commissioners. The relocation of the office from Birmingham to two locations in Wales – Caernarfon and Pontypridd, provides an exciting opportunity to play a full role in supporting the Traffic Commissioner for Wales in her regulatory duties. This will include preparing casework received from the licensing office and enforcement agencies, clerking public inquiries which arise from the reports received.

What sets this office out from the other seven in the network is that the team will also play an important role in working closely with the Welsh Government and other external stakeholders on behalf of the Traffic Commissioner.

The ability to speak and write fluently in Welsh and English will also help ensure that we meet our commitments to the Welsh language.
