The Role

A great opportunity for someone looking to start or develop a career in Highways Engineering. 

Cambridgeshire County Council are looking for highways project staff at all levels of experience to join a fast-paced projects team delivering small and medium-sized highway schemes across Cambridgeshire. 

We’re looking for strong team players interested in working with a variety of professional and community partners across Cambridgeshire and you’ll be joining a team that prides itself in developing talent with a wide range of projects to deliver on a rolling annual programme. 

Cambridgeshire County Council’s Place and Economy Directorate delivers services across areas such as transport, new infrastructure, roads, and the environment. It aims to manage and deliver the growth and development of sustainable communities, meet the challenges of climate change and enhance the natural environment. This role is based within the Highways service which manages, maintains and improves the county’s transport network and is responsible for the county's transport assets.

The Highways service operates from a number of bases across Cambridgeshire, with a central base in Huntingdon. We are flexible about work location, but the ability to travel to different locations is essential. 

As an Assistant Engineer, you will play a key role in the design and delivery of a range of highway schemes, from minor improvements to major redesigns and carriageway reconstruction, taking them from feasibility through to construction and closeout.

You will have experience in the design, planning and construction of local transport projects, strong communication skills and a proactive approach to partnership working.

Interviews will be held on the 30th April/1st May.
