With sustainable growth comes transport opportunity

Cambridgeshire County Council’s vision is to make Cambridgeshire a great place to call home. We are ambitious about the way in which we can support and shape the future success of our communities. As the fastest growing county in the UK, a big focus for Cambridgeshire is on developing and maintaining our highways and transportation networks. We want to ensure that Cambridgeshire continues to be a great place to live, work and learn, for both existing and new residents.

With exciting new developments and high-profile projects underway, Cambridgeshire is going through a period of tremendous growth and change. As we emerge from the pandemic, there has never been a more important time for Cambridgeshire to be a truly connected county. To support these growth aims, the Council seeks a new Director of Highways and Transport to drive transformational change and innovation across our highways and transport directorate and beyond.

As a credible sector leader with an outstanding ability to engage and communicate with communities, key partners and political stakeholders, you will maximise our transport infrastructure investment through partnership working to support the economic growth of the sub region. Importantly, you provide influential leadership and continue to shape your team of Assistant Directors to transform and strengthen performance across all aspects of transport strategy, network management, highways maintenance and project delivery.

With exceptional ambassadorial qualities and an ability to manage multi-million pound budgets, you will lead an unrivalled team to ensure our programmes of work are delivered to the highest standard. Whilst we’re already a leader in sustainable travel, the Council must become more innovative and more ambitious, and you will lead us towards our Council-wide economic growth plans and zero carbon targets.

This is your time to shine. Join us and bring true leadership and innovation to the future of connectivity within Cambridgeshire.
