Highways Maintenance Level 2 Apprenticeship

Our apprenticeship programme is a great opportunity to study towards a college qualification while earning and putting everything you have learnt into action through on-the-job training.

We currently have multiple Highways Maintenance Apprenticeships available within our Hampshire based team, where you will become a key part of the efforts to keep Hampshire moving.

What you’ll learn to do:

  • Carry out maintenance and repairs on the highways to keep roads safe and traffic flowing
  • Locate underground services, for example gas and power cables, and work safely around them
  • Install, maintain and work within temporary traffic management using traffic lights, stop and go signs, cones and barriers
  • Carry out repairs on all road types, laying new or replacement surfaces to specification
  • Work with a wide range of hand and power tools and plant to repair potholes, cut, replace and reinstate pavements and lay new surfaces using a variety of products, ensuring roads and pathways are suitable for vehicles and pedestrians
  • Work towards a Level 2 qualification in Highways Maintenance through our training academy

Who you are:

  • School or college leaver, someone outside of work or looking for a career change
  • Willing to apply yourself to the role, regardless of academic capability
  • Happy to work outdoors and in all weathers
  • A good team player and able to take instructions
  • A degree of work-readiness, including punctuality, an understanding of safety in the workplace and willingness to adhere to rules and regulations
  • It would be advantageous if you have a driver’s licence but if not, it is essential that you are able to obtain this in your first 12 months with us – some sites are remote and driving will be an important part of the job

What we offer:

  • Support to achieve a Level 2 qualification in Highways Maintenance
  • Guidance and support from your line manager, mentor and buddy
  • A competitive salary
