The Highways Agency network covers some 7,000 kilometres and serves 4 million vehicles every day. We are a £2.5 billion infrastructure business with many challenges and opportunities ahead of us. We need to derive ever increasing value from our expenditure, which will mean taking new approaches to the way in which we maintain, operate and enhance the strategic road network. Our interventions on the network affect almost every UK citizen, attract a high degree of scrutiny from customers, Ministers and the media, and with an investment programme growing in excess of £1 billion per annum, will help to enable economic growth. We are seeking senior, highly skilled and commercially minded individuals to join our leadership team to drive this forward.
Our scale of commercial operation is vast, with expenditure in the billions. The majority of our work, particularly capital and maintenance, is delivered through private-sector partners. You will ensure that the Agency behaves and purchases as an intelligent client and that we embed commercial best practice throughout the organisation. You are already a proven commercial manager operating in a complex, large capital environment who is keen to deliver on the national stage.
Closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 28th May 2012.
The Highways Agency is an equal opportunities employer. We value diversity and we positively encourage applications from all sections of the community. We operate a guaranteed interview scheme for disabled people who meet the minimum criteria.
