Can you deliver complex S38 schemes, leading a team & driving innovation to meet ambitions of a thriving city?
About Leeds City Council
Leeds is an economic powerhouse and is the second largest local authority in the UK by population and geographical area, serving a population of over 800,000.
Our ambition is to be the best city and the ‘best council’ in the UK; fair, open, and welcoming, with an economy that is both prosperous and sustainable, so that all our communities are successful.
We want Leeds to be a city that is compassionate and caring with a strong economy, which tackles poverty and reduces inequalities, and is distinctive, sustainable, ambitious, fun, and creative for all, with a council that its residents can be proud of as the best council in the country.
The city is supported by the largest local authority highway network in England. A transformational transport strategy is being developed and one of the largest city transport infrastructure investment programmes in the country is being delivered. The overall aim of this is to move the city away from the “motorway city of the 1970s” to one where sustainable transport and active travel play a major role and there is no need to own a car.
Given this level of ambition, there is no better time to consider a career with Leeds City Council and in particular their Highways and Transportation team(s).
We are proud to be an inclusive city and that we have been named in the top 50 inclusive employers in the country by LGBT+ charity Stonewall. Our staff networks ensure that we support inclusivity, equity of opportunity and career progression for all our workforce.
