This is a unique and exciting opportunity for an Engineer to join a truly collaborative team which designs and delivers high quality, innovative solutions for walking and cycling infrastructure.
Working together to achieve our strategic priority of Liveable Cities and Towns for Everyone, we are very proud of our portfolio of ground-breaking projects, working hand in hand with local communities reshaping their streets and alongside local authorities and other partners, unlocking the potential of the wider road network to encourage greater active travel. Underpinning all our work is a passion for sustainability and support for our vision of a society where the way we travel creates healthier places and happier lives for everyone.
We are looking for a talented engineer with a background in delivering quality highway infrastructure schemes and ideally with a track record of working with community groups and partners. Someone who can help us develop and progress feasibility reports, prepare designs and contracts and see our active travel projects through to construction and delivery.
In return we can help you to develop new skills and give you the freedom to express yourself creatively. We also encourage professional development with our industry-leading internal multi-disciplinary training opportunities and support towards attaining incorporated or chartered status, including ICE, IHE and CIHT. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a team of people who really enjoy working together and value the contribution and expertise each individual brings.
Interviews will be held over MS Teams / Zoom between Wednesday 16 and Friday 18 September 2020.
