As a Highways Maintenance Operative Apprentice your every day will be different! One day, you might be working on installing traffic management systems, the next you might be working on minor civil works like temporary patching or ditching.

You will also be responsible for:

  • Routine and cyclic maintenance activities
  • Minor civil works
  • Drainage works
  • Carriageway patching

You’ll be provided with a “buddy”, to assist you as you settle in. This is the person will be the friendly face when you join our Highways team – the go-to person that you will ask lots of questions to when you start! Once you have settled in, you will be allocated your mentor in the workplace.

Your mentor will support you throughout your qualification, help you learn the technical skills and have regular catch-up with you to ensure that you are on the way to become our next Highways superstar! 

At the end of your Apprenticeship, you will move into a guaranteed permanent position with Amey, and your development does not stop there! As part of being an employee at Amey, you will be given lots of opportunities to further your development; whether that is by doing further qualifications which Amey will fund through our Apprenticeship Schemes or progressing further in the business into our supervisor positions, the choice is yours!
