Here in Swindon we understand what matters to our 220,363 residents: an affordable home, good education, job opportunities and quality of life in a great location, as one of the UK’s fastest growing towns.

That is why we are working with partners to deliver our ambitious vision for Swindon so that the Borough continues to thrive in the future and benefits from well-managed growth, investment and regeneration.

About the role 

This is an exciting opportunity to join our Traffic Management & Road Safety team working to balance the demands of current and future transport needs, delivering highways improvements and policies to ensure that we have an effective and efficient highway and transport network that supports Swindon’s economic growth.
