Highways England have signed up to use Smart Highways and Highways Magazine’s new recruitment service.
Highways Recruit is the new service from the two magazines’ sites which are aimed at the UK ITS and highway maintenance and traffic management industries.
Highways England, the government-owned company which is delivering the £15 billion set out in the government’s Roads Investment Strategy to improve the strategic road network, will advertise a wide range of positions on Highways Recruit via the unlimited jobs option.
Head of resourcing at Highways England Russell Kennedy said, “We want to be recognised for our safety performance, our network management skills, our project delivery and our commitment to continuous improvement. It is an exciting time to be in the road construction industry and we are always looking for new ways to generate interest in the variety of fantastic job opportunities that we have to offer. Particularly from people who perhaps haven’t considered a career with Highways England before. This new Highways Recruit service will provide Highways England with a new forum for advertising all of our jobs and we look forward to the high quality applications that we will receive.”
Highways Magazine editor Alec Peachey said, “We have always had a strong working relationship with Highways England. I’m delighted that they have chosen Highways Recruit as a medium for advertising their jobs at a time when there is unprecedented investment in the industry.”
The people using the sites for news and updates are professionals from within the ITS and highways sectors, so by using the Highways Recruit service the roles that are advertised have the best chance of reaching the right applicants.
