Our client is looking for an Asset Data Assessor to be based in Leeds for an ongoing contract.

The Trust looks after many structures (assets) along the UK waterways including culverts, bridges, lock gates and many more. To better predict the long-term condition of our infrastructure, we are in the process of creating a new computer model (Asset Condition Health Index) which will inform our future investment decisions and enrich our knowledge of asset life cycles.

In order to do this, we need to gather a wide range of data across our portfolio of Trust assets. We are calling for Asset Data Assessors to collect this information and help to complete our new Asset Condition Health Index. This initiative is generously funded by players of the People's Postcode Lottery.

Key Accountabilities

* Work independently to interpret and collate culvert and bridge data from infrastructure inspection reports from the Trust's online asset archive (SharePoint)

* Interpret the severity and extent of the structures and feed this data into Microsoft Excel spreadsheets which will then be fed into the Trust's Asset Condition Health Index

* May include work with GIS (mapping software) amongst other standard software packages

* Work with engineers locally and across the network to assure data quality and accuracy

* Work in the Leeds office Knowledge, Experience and Skills

* Civil engineering knowledge (graduate or equivalent)

* Recent civil engineer graduates welcome to apply

* Understanding of basic structural mechanics (culverts/bridges)

* Understanding of structural component parts (culverts/bridges)

* Understanding of conditional reports and assessments of structures

* Understanding of infrastructure risk

* Good standard of written and verbal communication

Proven experience in standard computer applications, at intermediate or advanced level in Microsoft computer packages, particularly MS Excel. Experience of, or willingness to learn about, GIS mapping software
