Parking Officer

Parking Officers provide information on parking, they enforce parking laws and operate council off street parking facilities so that parking spaces are shared among users.

Parking officers get to spend a lot of time outdoors and walk around the community as part of their job. They may provide advice and directions to tourists and advice to the community about council.

Some councils may employ more parking officers in the busy summer period.
