A Graduate Internship opportunity has arisen that will provide an opportunity to develop skills relevant to your studies and develop knowledge of one of the largest highways networks in North Yorkshire.

This unique internship will assist you to gain valuable work experience and learn from experienced colleagues.

The Highways and Transportation Service Unit is responsible for the management, maintenance and improvement of the highway network in North Yorkshire. The service has a proven track record of delivery in highway and bridge maintenance, improvement schemes, traffic management, flood risk and development management and transport planning and policy work.

We pride ourselves on our combination of a large scale strategic approach combined with a focus on local delivery and as such we have a number of bases across the county.
