About Highways England

Highways England is the new government owned company charged with driving forward our motorways and major A roads. This includes; modernising and maintaining the highways, as well as running the network and keeping traffic moving.

Over recent years, investment in our highways has increased, while advances in technology, such as smart motorways, mean that traffic flows better. However, even more needs to be done.

Certainty of funding and greater flexibility will enable us to become a better business. In our first 5 years alone, we'll invest £11 billion in motorways and A roads - boosting capacity, tackling congestion and improving safety.

At the same time, we'll improve how we work. That means we'll plan roadworks better to minimise disruption; clear incidents more quickly; and save more than £1 billion by working more efficiently.

It's an exciting time to start a career with Highways England. With 11 billion pounds to invest in major road improvements over the next 5 years, there's an opportunity for you to be part of something special.

  • Competitive pay and benefits, alongside an excellent pension.
  • A wide range of learning and development opportunities.
  • Fair and open performance management based on what you achieve and how you achieve it.
