Costain helps to improve people’s lives by deploying technology-based engineering solutions to meet urgent national needs across the UK’s energy, water and transportation infrastructures.
East Sussex Highways is a joint venture between Costain and CH2M which will bring together several aspects of highways maintenance, such as roads, pavements, drainage, street lights, traffic lights and structures that are currently run by outside contractors and the county council.
The area of responsibility for this role is end to end management of the capital works programme and therefore requires thorough knowledge of Highways Construction practice, and familiarity with the NEC suite of contracts. The ideal candidate must also be an excellent leader who can discover the most efficient ways to manage and motivate the team.
As part of the Leadership team you will aim to promote safety, maximise margin and to augment the efficiency of the project’s operations to provide value for money for the local authority client.
We listened to our employees so our Core Benefits are funded by us and include a Group Pension Scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, Life Assurance, Income Protection and funded membership to a Professional Institute. In addition to this we also offer a Private Healthcare Scheme, Private Dental Scheme, Cycle to Work, Volunteering Days and Save as You Earn Scheme.
At Costain we aim to be an accessible, diverse and inclusive organisation to continue to meet our customers’ needs. We will be industry leading in our approach and people from all backgrounds will be proud to work for Costain. Our goal is to have a workforce that is representative of society.
We actively encourage applications from candidates who have a relationship with the armed forces community whether as a currently serving member or reservist, ex-military or wounded personnel or as a member of a service family.
