National Highways operates, maintains and improves England’s strategic road network made up of motorways and major A roads. These vital arteries account for a third of all traffic, carry two thirds of heavy goods vehicles, and are relied on by 98% of the UK’s businesses.
Increasing levels of investment are leading to all manner of innovations. But with 4,300 miles of motorway, 20,000 bridges, underpasses, retaining walls and other kinds of structures, our work continually increases in scale and complexity. Not least as we bring £27.4 billion-worth of projects to life, boosting capacity, tackling congestion and improving safety.
Would you like to study a degree at University whilst gaining on site experience and knowledge? You will learn not only the technical side of engineering but how our contracts work, how innovation can improve safety and efficiency and also how National Highways connects people’s journeys through these strategic links.
You will have a wealth of new opportunities to explore right here, as you continue to make improvements to society by creating roads that are ever-more efficient, effective and above all safe.
The Civil Engineering Degree Apprenticeship gives you a chance to earn money, work to gain experience whilst studying and all without paying the fees. If you’re looking to get your career moving in a challenging, yet highly rewarding role, then this opportunity at the National Highways is the one right role for you, offering an excellent insight into the Civil Engineering.
This role will start in September 2023
At National Highways, safety is our number one priority. It is one of our core values, as well as a behaviour we expect from our people.
Our vision is that everyone who uses our roads, as well as those who work for us, get home, safe and well. Our Home Safe and Well approach sets out our commitments and how our employees can contribute.
Working for us, you’ll recognise the behaviours required to achieve our vision, and help create a fair and just culture for us all. You should be able to fully understand the hazards and risks that are involved in your work, and follow our procedures safely.
We want you to feel able to raise health, safety and wellbeing concerns with your colleagues, and to challenge unsafe conditions or behaviours wherever you see them. We’re always seeking to improve our performance, and want you to be at the heart of that - helping us all get home safe and well.
Please complete your application as soon as possible as we may close to new applications earlier than the current closing date which is currently 16th December 2022.
