ANYONE educated to A-level standard have been urged to find out more about civil engineering opportunities.
Staffordshire County Council has created two full-time roles in its highways team as part of a four-year training scheme.
Successful applicants will receive job training and support through gaining civil engineering qualifications at university.
The new recruits will also work within the design and maintenance teams and the highways laboratory.
They will also gain valuable experience on projects such as the Redhill employment park, Stafford.
Mark Winnington, the county council’s cabinet member for economy and infrastructure, said: “This is a great opportunity for two people looking to take the first step towards a career in civil engineering.
“The county council will support the successful candidates through the four-year scheme; after which they will move into a permanent engineering position.
“We have made a commitment to invest in our highways infrastructure as people tell us this is a priority to them.
“As part of this, we want skilled engineers on board who can really make a difference to Staffordshire people and business and develop their own careers at the same time.”
