We want Swindon to be a place that communities are proud to be a part of.

Swindon’s Highways and Transport team has a critical role in managing and improving our highway and transport network and in supporting our growing business and residential populations. Balancing demands and current and future transport needs through our works programmes, policies and vision is key to ensuring that we have an effective and efficient highway and transport network able to help Swindon achieve its potential.

The role offers an opportunity to be involved in a wide range of projects, working with colleagues across the organisation, plus external partners whilst developing your skills in applying traffic management and road safety principles across a breadth of scenarios.
