Your next role

It’s time for the next step.
You’ve earned it.

We have recently supported a local authority with a Senior Highway Design Lead to oversee the design of CRSTS and BSIP funded schemes. This is a requirement that we envision appearing again, so we are always on the look out for more individuals with the right skillset.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Lead the design and development of highway projects, ensuring compliance with engineering standards and regulatory requirements.
  • Collaborate with project managers and other discipline leads.
  • Prepare detailed plans, specifications, and cost estimates.
  • Conduct design reviews, feasibility studies, and risk assessments.
  • Utilize advanced CAD and engineering software to create detailed drawings and design documentation.
  • Stay current with industry trends, advancements, and best practices in highway design.


  • Proficiency in design software (Civils 3D is becoming a more frequent request) and other engineering tools.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects and meet deadlines.

Our last placement was remote the occasional requirement to meet stakeholders. This will vary from organisation to organisation.
