The opportunity:

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced Senior Engineer within our Highways and Transport Directorate.

You will form an integral part of a dynamic and highly motivated team responsible for managing the implementation of highway schemes for the residents of West Sussex. You will be directly involved in many significant projects across the county, ranging from minor junction improvements, to traffic calming and cycling schemes, to town centre public realm schemes. You will also support the team to develop and influence the prioritisation of forthcoming programmes of highway schemes, working with our Councillors and stakeholders from across the service and delivering a customer focused service.

You will be responsible for tasks to deliver schemes with in-house teams or consultant engineers to agreed deadlines and specification, as well as liaising with external and internal partners, stakeholders and communities about scheme development and assist with public consultations when appropriate.

In this diverse role you will build up experience in Highway Engineering and Project Management. The role will bring you great personal satisfaction in that you will see highways schemes delivered from the concept stage through to implementation, and that they make a difference to the communities of West Sussex.
