Your role will support the management of the coast protection assets along the North Norfolk District Council and Great Yarmouth Borough Council coastline. This will include undertaking site visits, defence inspections, survey of assets and supporting the team in the delivery of projects. You will also lead the repair and maintenance work that we do on our assets.
