Highways Agency jobs… driving your career

As an Agency, we aim to be the best roads oper­a­tor there is. But this presents a chal­lenge in itself. We have to work with the exist­ing net­work and tight annual bud­gets to man­age our roads and keep them operational.

This means lots of work to plan our ongo­ing net­work improve­ments and invest­ments to max­imise the ben­e­fits to road users whilst min­imis­ing dis­rup­tion to jour­neys. Our staff are vital to this.

We man­age 4,500 miles of motor­way and A roads in Eng­land. This road net­work, we call it the Strate­gic Road Net­work, forms the arter­ies of our nation. Our net­work is used by mil­lions of motorists every day – and every sin­gle one relies on our roads to get to work, run their busi­ness, or travel around the country.

The doc­u­men­tary ‘The Motor­way: Life in the Fast Lane’, cur­rently show­ing on Tues­days on BBC2, fea­tures High­ways Agency on-road staff, includ­ing traf­fic offi­cers, team man­agers and regional con­trol cen­tre operators.

Our YouTube chan­nel fea­tures a video with more about traf­fic offi­cer jobs and about the role of the regional con­trol cen­tre. You can also read day in the life fea­tures for traf­fic offi­cers, team man­agers and con­trol room man­agers through the menu below.

But High­ways Agency careers aren’t just lim­ited to the road­side. We also look to find the best tal­ent for a range of roles, includ­ing traf­fic tech­nol­o­gists and ana­lysts, project man­agers, con­tract man­agers, per­for­mance ana­lysts, sta­tis­ti­cians, engi­neers and more.

The sheer scale of our work means we oper­ate in dif­fer­ent busi­ness areas; these include Strat­egy and Plan­ning, Com­mer­cial and Pro­cure­ment, Net­work Ser­vices, Major Projects, Finance and Busi­ness Ser­vices Direc­torate, Traf­fic Man­age­ment Direc­torate and the Net­work Deliv­ery and Devel­op­ment Directorate.
