It’s an exciting time to work in Brighton & Hove. Our city has an international reputation, growing influence and a reach far beyond its geographical size. We benefit from emerging opportunities in environmental industries, proximity to London, Gatwick Airport, two channel ports within the city region and good infrastructure links northwards. As a result the city has a growing number of exciting Development Projects, all of which have transport challenges and opportunities for our city. Could you be the person to help us make them a success?

In this influential and exciting role you will be involved in a number of high profile transport schemes throughout the city. You will negotiate and work with developers and their consultants to deliver highway improvements identified through the planning process.

As a core member of the Development & Transport Assessment Team, you will lead on the design and supervision of Section 278 and 38 highway works associated with new developments, ensuring that our city keeps moving as it grows.

You will be an enthusiastic professional with experience of civil engineering and highway design, and the skills to establish and maintain positive partnerships with a range of stakeholders.
