Are you a great communicator? We are looking for people who enjoy establishing working relationships with a variety of professionals including councillors, officers and outside organisations.

These are exciting opportunities to work in Hertfordshire’s £100M highways service delivering the ‘Members Highways Locality Budget’ scheme. You will have a key role in assisting county councillors by acting as their gateway into the service and assisting them to allocate the budget.

No two days are the same due to the variety of work within the Highways Locality service!

The successful candidates will also work with and support county councillors in managing highway queries that come to them from their local community.

We are looking for enthusiastic and pro-active individuals to join the service who are articulate communicators and have strong negotiation skills. In addition, experience gained in the highways design/engineering sector will be essential as the variety of tasks will require a good highways ‘all-rounder,’ matched with an attitude ‘to get the job 'one.’
