About the Job

Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) are, first and foremost, a uniformed point of contact for visitors and residents. They act as “ambassadors” for the council and frequently help with directions to local landmarks, answering a wide range of questions about the local area, as well as providing advice to the public on parking queries. The Team has invested in state-of-the-art equipment, including personal video cams and handheld computers, and is committed to really improving the service offered to the public. This in turn offers the right individual the chance to really develop skills, confidence, and opportunities to further their career.

Our Civil Enforcement team plays a key part in ensuring our roads are safe and help to reduce congestion. Officers operate in the whole of Bath & North East Somerset, seven days a week including early mornings and late evening, working outside in the fresh air and all weathers whilst talking to people and improving their fitness and health. Civil Enforcement Officers enforce parking and waiting restrictions on public roads as well as in our car parks. All staff in the service work as a team and provide support to help deliver events and parking suspensions, ensuring that Bath and North East Somerset is the place to live, work and visit.

The main objectives of a Civil Enforcement Officer (CEO) are to make sure that both on and off-street parking restrictions are observed and when they cannot ask the driver to move on, enforced in a fair, correct, and consistent manner. CEO’s check whether vehicles are parked appropriately and issue parking tickets called Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) to any that are parked in contravention of the Traffic Management Act 2004 regulations. Civil Enforcement Officers (CEO’s) enforce parking and waiting restrictions on public roads as well as in our car parks.

Before carrying out enforcement duties on their own, all CEO’s will have completed a comprehensive training programme and worked alongside an experienced officer.  This ensures that parking policies are followed correctly and that they maintain a high level of customer service when dealing with the public.
