Area Manager ( Highway, Traffic, Stuctures)


Website Waterman Aspen

Have you reached a point where career progression means giving up the “hands-on” engineering you enjoy?

Want to take the next step into management, yet don’t want to lose touch with your technical skills?

Waterman Aspen have a position for an Area Manager to join our West Midlands team. You will be experienced in a Local Authority or Consultancy environment and be skilled in any of the fields below:

  • Highway Engineering (design or maintenance)
  • Traffic Engineering / Transportation
  • Bridge Structures (assessment, maintenance or design)

This role will open up a world where you will be able to split your time between secondment as an Engineer and working as an Area Manager building up the business in the West Midlands in a non-technical role. Our Area Managers find the mix of the two roles provides their enjoyment of engineering and allows a practical introduction into Business Management and Development.

This is not for the faint hearted; the role does need a certain level of commitment, a “get stuck in” approach, and an appetite to succeed will certainly serve you well. But in return you will be personally mentored through our Management Training Programme learning how to manage a team, recruit staff and develop client relationships. We also offer a competitive package, company car, Managers Bonus Scheme and paid professional subscription.
