Highways England on the search for apprentices to join Lower Thames Crossing project

Highways England is looking for apprentices to join the Lower Thames Crossing project.

Six project management apprentices are being taken onto help with the road investment scheme.

This recruitment drive comes as Highways England continues to revise the application withdrawn in November due to feedback received from the government’s independent planning authority, the Planning Inspectorate.

From September, the apprentices will be studying Level 4 project management, aiming to complete the Higher National Certifications qualifications (equivalent to a foundation degree).

Beyond apprentices, the construction of the Lower Thames Crossing – the largest road investment scheme in 35 years – is eventually expected to support more than 22,000 jobs.

Programme director Shaun Pidcock said:  “We have ambitious plans to build for the future, for which we need driven and hard-working people with a ‘can do’ attitude on our team. That’s why we’ll be creating hundreds of apprenticeships to support local learning and development.”
