Highways career opportunities

We are always on the lookout for new talent to join our highways service and NY Highways company based in our area offices across North Yorkshire. We offer fantastic career development opportunities with a great work-life balance that works for you.

"I love knowing I'm making a difference to my community and changing the future of North Yorkshire".

With over 9,000 km in length, North Yorkshire has one of the longest road networks of any highway authority in the country. Our highway infrastructure is therefore paramount to our success.

Our ambition is to ensure that North Yorkshire is a place with a strong economy and a commitment to sustainable growth that enables our residents and visitors to fulfil their ambitions and aspirations.

We want North Yorkshire to be a thriving county which adapts to a changing world and remains a special place for everyone to live, work and visit.

Delivering the right transport infrastructure is critical to achieving our ambition, and that’s where you come in.

Women in engineering

Did you know we have 111 female highways workers at the council, responsible for helping maintain one of England’s longest road networks? This is above the UK average for women working in engineering.

"I don't consider myself a 'female' engineer, just an engineer."

Jayne Charlton, NY Highways area manager for Richmondshire and Hambleton, says: "With long hours and early morning calls, it is very challenging and a huge responsibility but also very satisfying to know that we are keeping the highway network safe.”
