You will be responsible, supported by a senior engineer, for all structural maintenance issues concerning bridges, structures, and reservoirs. As a successful candidate you will possess knowledge of structural assessments of highway structures, including bridges and retaining walls.  You will employ your engineering expertise to direct the structures team to ensure the longevity and safety of critical infrastructure. You will oversee the Team's proficiency in contract management to ensure seamless collaboration with contractors, fostering an environment that prioritises project success, mitigates risks and maintains a fine balance between innovation, adherence to established standards and value for money.

In essence, with this opportunity, you will lead a multidisciplinary team operating at the intersection of design, engineering, construction, maintenance and project management, ensuring that the Borough’s transport infrastructure not only meets current needs and unlocks growth potential but also withstands the test of time.
