What you will bring

This is a career graded role, so if you are working towards completion of the National Certificate / ONC / OND or equivalent in civil engineering or an appropriately related subject and have little highways related knowledge and experience, or working towards a HNC HND and have extensive highway related experience, we would love to hear from you.

What’s in it for you.

This is a fantastic career opportunity for someone who has experience in highways design or as a Highways officer.

The County of North Yorkshire is the largest County in England and Wales. Within the county are 598 square miles of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and 530 square miles of the North York Moors National Park. The county is included in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region.

Whilst the economy of the County has traditionally been dependent on agriculture and tourism, there is a fast growing high technology base and this, together with other forms of light manufacturing industry, is of increasing importance. The County Council has an active policy of economic development and the predominantly rural character of the County is highly attractive to high technology businesses as well as the traditional industries of farming, food production and tourism. The County contains several centres of great historic interest, market towns that invite light industrial development, the modern coalfield area in the South, scenic, lightly populated upland areas and the extensive lowland area in the Vale of York.
