National Highways operates, maintains and improves England’s strategic road network made up of motorways and major A roads. These vital arteries account for a third of all traffic, carry two thirds of heavy goods vehicles, and are relied on by 98% of the UK’s businesses.
Increasing levels of investment are leading to all manner of innovations. But with over 4,500 miles of motorway, 20,000 bridges, underpasses, retaining walls and other kinds of structures, our work continually increases in scale and complexity. Not least as we bring £27.4 billion-worth of projects to life, boosting capacity, tackling congestion and improving safety.
As well as a competitive salary we also offer 26 days in annual leave, plus bank holidays and the accrual of 1 extra day per year of service, along with pension contributions.
Why you should join us
At National Highways, safety is our number one priority. It is one of our core values, as well as a behaviour we expect from our people.
Our vision is that everyone who uses our roads, as well as those who work for us, get home, safe and well. Our Home Safe and Well approach sets out our commitments and how our employees can contribute.
Working for us, you’ll recognise the behaviours required to achieve our vision, and help create a fair and just culture for us all. You should be able to fully understand the hazards and risks that are involved in your work, and follow our procedures safely.
We want you to feel able to raise health, safety and wellbeing concerns with your colleagues, and to challenge unsafe conditions or behaviours wherever you see them. We’re always seeking to improve our performance, and want you to be at the heart of that - helping us all get home safe and well.
Please complete your application as soon as possible as we may close to new applications earlier than the current closing date.
Everyone who works at National Highways, from those who design our roads to those who patrol them, play a vital part in keeping our customers safe.
We have a diverse workforce that reflects the communities we work in and foster an inclusive culture by actively supporting our growing employee networks.
We want to attract the very best talent to work with us. Our roles range from accountants to traffic officers, and engineers to project managers. But what they all have in common is helping to connect the country, and the opportunity for you to really grow your career with us.
