    Description

    Lincolnshire is a very special place to work, visit, live and invest. It is steeped in history and brimming with life and vibrant coastal tourism. Our Highways infrastructure is extremely important as it supports the local economy, provides access to jobs, services and enables thousands of visitors to experience our beautiful coast and countryside. We are a ‘Band 3 Authority’ and have a buoyant workload with a number of major schemes planned including the forthcoming Lincoln Eastern Bypass.

    We are looking for enthusiastic, effective and aspiring individuals to join the Technical Services Partnership. TSP are the County Council’s experts in the design and supervision of highway-related works. As public sector and private sector working together, we combine the best of both worlds. We have specialist teams in road design, structures, drainage, traffic signals, lighting and signs. Our current projects range from simple footway schemes to the supervision of the Lincoln Eastern Bypass.

    You will be given plenty of support to develop your career and – if not already achieved – will be expected to attend college on day release in order to get your Civil Engineering ONC and HNC. Reporting to one of our Principal Engineers, duties will include engineering surveys and inspections, assisting in the design of projects and supervising works on site. As well as effective communication skills, this will require you to be able to use a range of IT skills and you will become a user of CAD.

    Ideally you will have already gained some experience in the area of highway design and construction and will have a full driver’s licence so you can use our pool cars.
