About the Role
As one of the world’s leading engineering, professional services and technical consultancy firms, at WSP, we’re passionate about the big questions. And big answers, naturally. For us that’s all about reaching beyond the expected to do work that’ll make a profound impact felt long into the future.
Join us as a Engineer in the Highway Safety Team and you’ll be part of a team that undertakes collision analysis and the promotion of engineering treatments, in line with Hertfordshire County Council’s (HCC) standards, to reduce the frequency and severity of personal injury collisions in Hertfordshire.

Furthermore the team acts as a partner of the Hertfordshire Safety Camera Partnership and has the role of managing/ upgrading the existing camera sites and reviewing the need for new locations.
This is a great opportunity to join a busy and specialist team.
A typical week would include:
* Undertaking Road Safety Audits of Highway projects
* Undertaking detailed analysis of personal injury collision data
* Coordinating and negotiating opportunities for casualty reduction measures to be undertaken by other teams across the highways service
* Preparing preliminary/ detailed designs of collision reduction interventions
We’d love to hear from you if you have:
* Degree or HNC/HND qualification in a relevant discipline.
* Extensive experience in highway engineering, construction or design.
* Experience of working in a local government environment
* An interest in Highway Safety Engineering
* RoSPA Accident Investigation and Prevention Training
* Certificate of Competence for Road Safety Audits
