Bedford Borough is the place to grow, the Council is committed to supporting people, enhancing places, creating wealth and empowering communities and now offers you an exciting opportunity to join its in-house Engineering Services team.  With significant infrastructure projects such as the £20 million pound Transporting Bedford 2020 project and recently announce £22.6 million pound Town Deal, this really does present you with a unique opportunity to deliver your engineering work within a thriving local authority engineering team. 

Each multi-disciplinary team has professional engineers who work together across all areas of highways, intelligent transport, bridges, lighting, signs, drainage and developer-led works (S38 and S278). With the Council containing most services under one roof you will also meet and get to know lots of other specialists, including our colleagues in highways, highways development control, transport, planning, building services and parks teams.

Your personal development matters to us. The Engineering Services team operates a career grade structure that allows staff to progress from Trainee Engineering Technician through to Engineer whilst achieving professional development, and engineering qualifications, supported by in-house mentors and reviewers from accredited professional institutions.

We are currently looking for 5 new team members to join our Engineering Teams. You will work within the team on a wide variety of projects at a level appropriate for the role.  You will receive support, guidance and encouragement to progress in your career.

The Council is committed to offering you a good work-life balance, which includes its flexi-time and agile working arrangements. There is a service to be delivered, but we don’t forgot your home requirements or those precious personal moments. You would work a 37 hour working week with 26 days of annual leave (increasing to 31 days after 5 years’ service), compensated by a competitive salary and a pension scheme that will be completely unrivalled in the private sector.

Bedford Borough Council is an inclusive employer. It is your engineering skills that we are after, so why not join this engaging and supportive team with all of the opportunities and benefits that it can offer you?
