We are looking to recruit a candidate who wants to pursue a career in civil engineering as a result of the continued commitment to invest in our Highways and Transportation infrastructure. The candidate will gain experience of highway infrastructure, structures, drainage, traffic management and project delivery whilst helping to provide high quality project management, asset management, design and contract management services. The candidate will work alongside professionally qualified engineers and technicians in the provision of municipal engineering in a diverse and varied environment.

What we are looking for

Rhondda Cynon Taf welcomes applications from all sections of the community.


If you are expecting to gain a 2:1 degree in a related discipline, or have been in the workplace since gaining your 2:1 degree, and have drive and passion to help us meet a huge range of responsibilities then you could apply to be part of our Graduate Programme.
