Highways England Careers and Employment

About us
We are the road...

The country never stops. So neither do we. We’re responsible for operating, maintaining and improving all 4,300 miles of England’s motorways and major A roads – and we're aiming high for the future. We have major plans to revolutionise the strategic road network with innovative design and smart technology.


We will connect communities,
 – more... sustain businesses and keep the economy moving. So when you join us, you’ll be supporting the nation. And with responsibility for major projects, you'll be making a great move for your career.

Our roads make up less than 3% of the length of England’s total road network. Yet they carry one third of all traffic, and two thirds of all freight. Many businesses rely on our roads, and nine out of ten of them are located less than 15km from our network. Whether it’s the daily commute or delivering to deadlines, the nation’s economy - and its people - depend on our work.


£15 billion will be invested by March 2020 to make our roads safer and smarter. Delivering this scale of road investment is unlike anything we've seen in a generation, and everyone here has a role to play in realising our plans.


Individually, we are engineers, project managers, analysts, planners, and more. We are skilled professionals, experts in risk, finance, efficiency, technology and more. We are leaders, thinkers and doers.


Together, we are the road
