We are looking to speak with development planning focussed Highways and Transport specialists to complement the existing team both geographically and technically; as well as to play a lead role in continued client and business development with the introduction of new clients and work streams to the group.

This will be a strategic appointment, and as such the location is flexible across the Midlands, Nottingham and London areas.
