Barnsley’s vision is a safer world where road deaths and injuries are substantially reduced and people can travel in safety, as healthily and sustainably as possible.

Creativity, ambition and a focus on people, that’s what matters at Barnsley Council. Our award-winning council is on an exciting journey of change. It’s all about putting local people at the heart of everything, listening to and doing good for our communities. We’re now more innovative, more efficient and provide better value for money. The changes are clear to see - from new businesses and jobs, to improving school results and to museums being recognised for their community engagement.

Shape a better future with us

We’re thrilled to have achieved Investors in People (IIP) Gold status for how we lead, support and develop people. Now we’d like you to be part of our success and help us take change further. Join us on our journey to a brighter future. By working together, with each other and with our communities, we can take pride in improving lives. Let’s make a better Barnsley for everyone.

Your role in our journey

As a Road Safety Technician, you will be part of the Traffic Group that comprises of engineers, Active Travel Officer and the School Crossing Patrol service. You will work closely with the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership, South Yorkshire Police, South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue, local authorities, public health bodies and others aimed at reducing the number of people killed and injured on all roads in the borough and helping to make our roads and communities safer. We aim to reduce those people injured in road traffic collisions through application of the 3 E’s – Education, Engineering and Enforcement.

The Road Safety Technician’s role will provide Education, Training and Publicity support, working closely with other agencies to deliver age relevant road safety activities and advice in schools, colleges, businesses and elsewhere in line with the South Yorkshire Safer Roads Partnership’s Education, Training and Publicity (ETP) Action Plan.

What you’ll need

To join us, you’ll need a relevant Level 2 qualification, and experience dealing with the public at all ages. Your talent for organising, communicating and forging relationships with a wide range of stakeholders will be equally impressive and an appetite for engaging in continuous training and professional development in this rewarding field of work.

A lot to look forward to

Here at Barnsley, we live and work by four important values: honesty, teamwork, excellent service, and taking pride in what we do. As part of our team, you can be sure we’ll do all we can to support you in being truly excellent. You see, we prioritise learning and enabling you to achieve your potential. So we’ve created a development process that lets you grow in the way that suits you - whether that’s training to be a leader, or learning flexibly online. That’s one of the reasons why we achieved IIP Gold, and why you’ll find your career here inspiring and rewarding.
