Skanska is responsible for two Highways Agency contracts, as well as local authority contracts in Somerset, Bath and North East Somerset, Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. The contract teams provide design, delivery and maintenance for our clients.

We are working on an increasing number of schemes within these contracts, so we are recruiting engineers at all levels, from graduates and apprentices to senior managers. We’re looking for people with skills in a range of disciplines, but particularly pavement and structures design, and highway drainage and geotechnical engineering. The company will also consider those with the right skills from outside of the highways industry.

Don Gordon, contract director for Skanska, said: “As a big player in the highways maintenance market, we have seen the size of schemes and workload growing. We have some very interesting opportunities for designers and project managers that they may not find elsewhere because design and delivery are fully integrated in our contracts. We are looking for people who want a challenge and want to be a part of our business growth.”
