Engineer (Development and Adoptions)

Your enthusiasm, ability and attention to detail can help us to build high quality, accessible places, and transport networks where it is easy for people to travel sustainably.

Each day brings new challenges as we consider a wide variety of S278 and S38 highway schemes and agreements, helping to create new spaces that our residents want to spend time in and planning for the future of the Boroughs transport networks.

As you consider the journeys of residents, businesses, and visitors to the Borough, we’ll make sure you have the training and support you need to get your own journey off to a flying start.

Because we’re Bracknell Forest.

What it's like working in our team...

Every day is different, with the opportunity to help respond to a wide variety of Section 278 and Section 38   highways adoptions and agreements. Working directly with the Senior Adoptions Engineer and Development & Adoptions Manager, along with the highway adoptions team, you will see the results of your work, the better places you will help to create and the difference this makes to users of the Borough’s transport networks.

You will be supported to carry out the following duties, responsibilities and training...

  • Supporting the technical evaluation and processes associated with Section 38 and Section 278 Highways Agreements and street naming and numbering.
  • Communicate effectively with colleagues, predominantly in Highways & Transport and Planning, including through reports, mark-up of technical drawings and verbally, being open and respectful to the views of others.
  • Undertake regular visits to development sites to meet with contractors and developers to ensure the smooth running of construction projects, confirming design requirements and that construction and procedures meet requirements 
  • Oversee and inspect the construction of new highways, serving development delivered as part of formal section 38 and section 278 works 
  • Reviewing road safety audits and responding to designers’ responses at all stages of the design and construction process in accordance with highway standards 
  • Carrying out technical reviews of Section 38 and Section 278 submissions, and managing technical acceptance, provision certificates and final certificates procedure.

The benefits you will experience are...

  • Flexible working arrangements.
  • An inclusive and social working environment.
  • Working in a small supportive team.
  • A great office location next to travel links and the regenerated town centre.
  • Support and mentoring to gain training and experience to progress your career in highways and Adoptions.

What we're looking for...

A motivated, enthusiastic, well organised individual who shows attention to detail. Someone who can evaluate Section 278 and section 38 applications and highways agreements against relevant highways and transport policies and design standards.

Interviews will be on 17th January 2022 (subject to any change in Covid-19 Roadmap set out by central Government)
