About the role
Our Highways business thrives on a culture of collaborative working, both internally within Balfour Beatty, and externally with our clients and joint venture partners. We have two new opportunities as an Operations Director to join our Highways Leadership team to lead either our Smart Motorways Programme (SMP) or the North & Midlands business area.
What you'll be doing
You will provide inspirational leadership to our people, drive profitable and sustainable growth whilst developing collaborative and meaningful relationships with clients. You will lead by example, setting behaviour standards, driving a culture of risk management and striving for the highest levels of employee engagement, customer service and satisfaction by delivering our Highways vision.

You will have substantial experience of leading major infrastructure projects and have personally led the delivery of a number of £50m+ projects. You will be a graduate (or qualified by experience), with membership of a relevant professional body.
The ability to manage large projects in a complex, matrix organisation is vital. In addition, you must be commercially astute, possess strong drive, be highly versatile and thrive on leading change. Finally, you will have excellent leadership skills, which encompass a high degree of empathy and support.
