Director of Transport and Highways

£96,414 to £106,650 per annum

In the newly created role of Director of Transport and Highways, you will play a leading role in driving forward Gloucestershire’s ambitious, fast-paced £multi-million transport and highways infrastructure programme. With proven experience of delivering results at speed in a senior transport, highways or engineering-focused role, you will ensure the county benefits from much improved connectivity, alongside supporting the growth of the local economy and our natural environment.

Reporting to the Executive Director for Economy, Environment and Infrastructure (EEI), as Director you will lead on the development of the council’s long-term strategy for transport across Gloucestershire, as well accelerating the delivery of the capital improvements programme and leading the operational maintenance of highways assets and our major projects portfolio. As a priority, you will develop and enhance the county’s active and sustainable travel agenda, working closely with Elected Members to ensure the council reaches its carbon neutral ambitions.

So far, we have made good progress with some of our major infrastructure plans, including an extension to Junctions 9 and 10 of the busy M5 motorway that runs through the heart of the county, as well as improvements to the A417 missing link to deliver a safe, resilient and free-flowing road. But there is still much more to do. We now seek an accomplished and expert leader to ensure the council meets its vision to improve the quality of life for every community, to support businesses to be successful and to ensure the county is a place where people continue to want to live, work and visit.

If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.
