I am working closely with an international consultancy that are looking to heavily increase their Stafford Highways Team. They are looking for engineers with 3 to 7 years industry experience working on Local Authority Active Travel, BRT, Junction Improvements and road alignments.

This office has a fantastic partnership with a county council and has been working with them for over 20 years to deliver schemes such as a multi-million pound relief road, numerous Cycelways and Bus Route Priority lanes and S278's.

They are looking for Highways Engineers to assist the Senior and Principal engineers in the detailed design and delivery of these schemes. They are looking for engineers that are career minded, technically gifted but still willing to learn new skills and grow as an engineer. If you have experience of using Civil 3D this will really help when applying but if you don't, please do not be put off applying as they are willing to offer second to none software training on Civil 3D and others like MicroDrainage and CAD 2D/3D.
