We are an ex-military-friendly organisation and are proud to have pledged our commitment to The Armed Forces Corporate Covenant since 2016, working in partnership with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to support leavers of the military to transition into a civilian career.
We’re developing a new outreach programme for schools and youth groups in the area. This includes looking at the need and legacy of the project in the area but also how Highways England uses science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) throughout its work. We hope to be able to inspire young people to consider a career in our industry. We will be engaging with educational establishments close to our project and we will be using our STEM ambassadors with this work.
