Recruitment opportunities after contractor appointed to £32m transport scheme22nd Jun 2020

The new contractor appointed to build the £32m King’s Dyke transport scheme is recruiting for key roles as work starts on site.

Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK is seeking applications for site agents, sub agents, senior project engineers and a project public liaison officer.

The Cambridgeshire County Council King’s Dyke project involves constructing a new road and bridge over the Ely to Peterborough railway line crossing on the A605 near Whittlesey. The level crossing will subsequently be removed as part of the programme.

And Jones Bros is now looking for local people to fill a variety of permanent vacancies as part of its recruitment drive in the area.

Jones Bros contracts director Geraint Thomas said: “Successful candidates will receive industry-leading training with clear career progression opportunities.

“Working for Jones Bros can be extremely rewarding if you show the right attitude and enthusiasm.

“In addition, it’s a fantastic opportunity to work on a significant scheme that is going to benefit the region for years to come.

“The company strives to engage with the local community as much as possible, creating career opportunities for school leavers through apprenticeships and a range of job vacancies for experienced personnel.”

Geraint added: “We are aware of the challenges presented by COVID-19 and we have put measures in place such as risk assessments, social distancing and suitable hygiene and welfare facilities on site.”

Established in the 1950s, Jones Bros’ leadership team consists of members of the second and third generations of the founding family. It employs more than 400 people.

The company is currently working on contracts in various sectors including highwaysflood and marine defencewaste management and renewable energy around the UK.
