About the role

Cambridgeshire County Council is offering an exciting opportunity, for a Design Services Manager, within the Design and Delivery Team.

The Design and Delivery Team manage diverse and varied programmes of work throughout Cambridgeshire working within our communities to improve our infrastructure and active travel potential. 

About you

You will be educated to degree level or above with significant experience in highway infrastructure design. You will be capable of leading a team of industry experts delivering design and construction projects. Your ability to influence our strategic direction and communicate with a range of stakeholders and teams will be essential in this role.

You will need to work closely with our in-house project management team to design and deliver an integrated work programme. Collaboration, enthusiasm, determination, and an attention to detail are a must, as well as a focus on delivering value for money and getting it right first time for our communities.

You will be expected to ensure that health, safety, and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do and deliver in our day-to-day activities.

The role will include the management of design professionals and apprentices. The existing team is well established and high performing, so previous experience in development and helping others reach their full potential is a must.
