You will design, plan, and supervise carriageway, footway and or drainage enhancement schemes in the major urban shopping areas of the county, selecting cost effective materials and ensuring health and safety compliance.

You will have substantial experience of designing, building and supervising major highway maintenance schemes and budgetary control of schemes of work.

The Depot is an exciting and fast-moving place to work, but rewarding, particularly when dealing with severe weather events or national emergencies.
