Prospective employees can find out what it’s like to work for Cheshire East Highways at a recruitment day in Crewe on Thursday, April 30.
The event has been organised by Ringway Jacobs, the Council’s contractors, and will be held in the Alexandra Suite at Crewe Alexandra Football Club between 2pm and 7pm. Anyone interested is invited to come in at any time during these hours.
It will provide an opportunity for job seekers to meet hiring managers, talk with team members, find out more about the service and express an interest in working for Cheshire East Highways.
Numerous vacancies will be available over the coming weeks in a variety of areas from design and engineering to works delivery and support functions. These are based throughout the Cheshire East area.
Candidates who can contribute to the safe and efficient delivery of the highways maintenance service and help make a difference to their local community are encouraged to attend and apply to join the team.
Entry level roles being advertised include those for apprentices and graduates on structured training schemes.
Apprentices work on a flexible placement scheme in areas such as highways maintenance and street lighting delivery, as well as business administration, finance and civil engineering.
They fulfil operational roles on the road network and office-based roles in support functions, supplementing on the job training with college studies.
Other posts to be advertised at the event include civil engineers, permit technicians, an asset strategy officer, technical support officer and senior asset technicians. The flood risk team are also seeking land drainage and surface water flood risk management specialists.
Operational roles are also being advertised for highways maintenance operatives (preferably HGV qualified), qualified street lighting electricians, HIAB/crane operators and a senior site supervisor.
Roles within support functions such as finance, commercial and business administration are also available, so the event may be of interest to local people with a non-engineering background.
Chris Shields, Service Leader for Cheshire East Highways said: “This is an exciting time to bring new talent into the service as we continue to deliver improvements throughout Cheshire East.”
This free to enter event is open to all. Those interested in attending are encouraged to register by emailing their contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org
