Do you want to join a pro-active, place-changing organisation?

Lincolnshire County Council has been at the forefront of creative thinking and innovative ways of working in the design and delivery of highway related infrastructure for a number of years.

Our award winning Highways Alliance has created a class leading design partnership between the Council and WSP. The role will be responsible for commissioning all of our major infrastructure design through the partnership and then the commissioning of the construction works to deliver these schemes. Our current activity includes the delivery of the £100m Lincoln Eastern Bypass, £80m Grantham Southern Relief Road, £60m Spalding Western Relief Road and £100m North Hykeham Relief Road. 

We are at the forefront of encouraging the delivery of housing and economic growth across the area. This includes creating an environment in which the highway infrastructure requirements can be delivered through partnership approaches including with developers, District Planning Authorities and the Local Enterprise Partnership. 

We are seeking an ambitious, positive and experienced person to lead and manage the team that brings these critical strands of work together.

You will have experience of the design and delivery of major highway infrastructure schemes through the robust commissioning of the design and construction phases of a scheme.

An ability to build and manage relationships, create a pro-active environment for investment and act as an ambassador to maintain Lincolnshire's acknowledged position of expertise in the delivery of major infrastructure will be essential in delivering this critical senior management role. 

We care about our staff so we want to offer you a competitive salary, generous holidays and access to our pension scheme. It is important to us that you have an excellent work/life balance and the opportunity to further develop your knowledge and skills in a supportive Local Authority setting where no two days are the same!
