I am looking to place a contract Highways Design Engineer in a global consultancy’s site office in East Sussex to work in partnership with the local council. The role will feature mainly major highways schemes, drainage design and flood risk planning, including both technical design work and maintenance scheme design on behalf of East Sussex Council.

It is expected that you will be able to design using a range of Civil design software i.e. AutoCAD/Civil3D, MicroDrainage, etc, though an appreciation for how designs translate to real-world sites is desirable.

Your role will also feature liaising with public bodies such as the Highways England and the Environment Agency, as well as representing the Council at various meetings with a range of stakeholders. As such, previous experience attending client/stakeholder meetings is also highly desirable.

In return for the right skills, the firm are offering a good hourly rate, though are open to negotiations, and an initial 6-month term with the option to extend on a prolonged basis for the right person.  

Job Requirements:
  • Relevant Education
  • IEng/CEng Status with ICE/CIHT
