Engineering Opportunities at Warwickshire County Council
Design Services, Warwickshire County Council are a civil engineering business unit within the Local Authority that provide a design consultancy service to both the private and public sector. The core business is comprised of the design and construction of highways and highway structures, but we also manage the maintenance of County's highway structure assets and operate a building and structural design service.

The team also provides technical engineering support to County Council Depts seeking to enhance existing farming infrastructure and waste management facilities and we have even had the opportunity to provide a technical advisory role to local government projects in Sierra Leone where they are seeking to improve their local municipal facilities.
