Flexible work opportunities Countywide

Cambridgeshire County Council is offering an exciting opportunity for an engineer with highway development management experience to fulfil a role in our busy team dealing with the challenges of delivering an ambitious and wide ranging growth agenda.

Key responsibilities of the post will be to develop, promote and secure the County’s transport objectives through the assessment of development proposals, provision of advice and support to Local Planning Authorities and negotiation with developers to secure adoption of new development infrastructure. Developments within the County provide a complex range of on-site and off-site transport issues to address, so you will need to demonstrate experience in highway related assessment of development proposals.

The role will require you to work closely with a variety of teams within the County Council, partners including District Councils, developers and members of the public. Attendance at Committees and working with elected members is also a key element of the role so in addition to your strong technical and negotiation skills, strong communication skills, both speaking and in writing are important attributes.

Ideally you will have a degree, or equivalent in a transport or Civil Engineering related discipline together with experience of highway development management.
