My goal is to reduce costs associated with Streetworks as much as possible by completing several checks daily, including checking if permit conditions are correct and granted on Street Manager (Streetworks database for permits), as well as dates are correct for other provisions in place, for instance a bus stop suspension is in place for the duration of works. I act as a support function for the planning team and will inform them if permits are revoked.
Other duties include managing high-value jobs (such as red route roads), checking Beenabouts and Whereabouts, recording cost loss and the reason for this, all while ensuring the team are aware of any time-sensitive activities to minimise delays and additional expenses.
What did you do before you started working here?
Prior to joining J Murphy & Sons Ltd, I worked as a personal assistant for Trend Communications, a telecommunications firm. Following that, I began working for Mercer, a Human Resource’s consulting firm, where I worked with actuaries and spent time in the Sales and Marketing department, planning events and advised businesses on pensions, benefits, and tax.
What is your proudest moment on the Agility Alliance so far?
To date, my proudest moment was saving money on Highway Agency Works Charges (HAWC) with the rest of the planning team. We noticed that a job appeared to have already been completed and took the necessary steps to cancel bays, resulting in a large refund. I take pride in the number of times I have been able to assist the Alliance in reducing costs associated with Streetworks.
