Highways England

We are responsible for England’s motorways and major A roads. We are the backbone of businesses and communities up and down the country.

Our roads make up just 2% of the wider road network. They carry one third of all traffic, and two thirds of all freight. In fact, 98% of businesses rely on our roads. Whether it’s the daily commute or delivering to deadlines, the nation’s economy - and its people - depend on our work.

£15 billion will be invested by 2020 to make our roads safer and smarter. Delivering this scale of investment is unlike anything we've seen in a generation, and everyone here has a role to play in realising our plans.

Individually, we are engineers, project managers, analysts, planners, and more. We are skilled professionals, experts in risk, finance, efficiency, technology and more. We are leaders, thinkers and doers. Together, we are the road.

It’s a major undertaking, calling for a team of extremely talented people. So every year, we give brilliant graduates a stage to excel – with the support to become our future leaders.

Expect excellent training and development throughout your career. Given that we’re making plans all the way through to 2050, this is the perfect place to plan for the long-term.

Whatever your interests and ambitions, you’ll be part of the most exciting and complex projects our country has seen in your lifetime. It's work that really matters, revolutionising our roads to support people, communities and businesses across the nation.
