Section 278 Highway Engineer required for contract job vacancy at Hampshire based local authority.

Your new role
You will be assisting the S278 Design Check Team in checking scheme designs and producing design check reports within specified turnaround times. You will be carrying out Design Checks at various stages; from preliminary designs to amendments and finalised scheme plans. As part of your responsibilities you will be required to follow projects through to the construction stage to impart your project background experience. You will be required to conduct site visits and meetings throughout Hampshire to liaise with clients and to ensure construction works follow the planned designs.

What you'll need to succeed
You'll need a detailed knowledge of highway design standards. All designs need to be checked against DMRB, Manual for Streets and NRSWA documentation so a working knowledge of working to these standards is essential. You will be a good communicator and will be able to confidently represent the local authority at meetings with stakeholders, developers and contractors. Ability to produce technical reports and a thorough understanding of S278 design is also an essential requirement. You will ideally be able to work on multiple concurrent schemes to meet set turnaround times for design checks and reports.

What you'll get in return
A very competitive rate of contract pay and working with a local authority known for an excellent working culture.
