We are looking for a highly motivated and collaborative individual to lead Cambridgeshire County Council’s Highway Projects & Road Safety teams. Responsible for ensuring delivery of the county council’s annual programme, circa £20m, including local infrastructure, maintenance, structures and road safety.

About the role
As Highways Projects and Road Safety Manager, you will lead, implement and develop a significant part of the Highways Service. You will be responsible for the performance of a wide variety of projects and will demonstrate strong programme and project management experience. You will be self-motivated and highly driven, with the ability to communicate effectively, collaborating with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, partners, local businesses and communities to develop and manage the County’s highway service.
This is a demanding but very rewarding role in a fast-paced environment, working in partnership with our service provider, Skanska. You will need to ensure projects are delivered in an effective, efficient and in a co-ordinated manner, working closely with local members.
