BEAR Scotland is bolstering its workforce in communities across Scotland, recruiting for up to 100 roles at all levels and departments in the business, seeking talent from entry-level roadworkers and engineering apprentices to senior civil engineers.
The leading trunk road operating company has recently augmented its track record by winning the new long-term Transport Scotland Network Management Contract, up to 12 years, to manage and maintain the trunk roads in the North West of Scotland. This follows its successful roll out of the comparative contract in South East Scotland in August 2020.
These contracts have been developed by Transport Scotland to improve resilience and ensure consistent, predictable and reliable journeys for trunk road users. The new contracts also include a renewed focus on achievement net zero and climate change adaptation targets.
Iain Murray BEAR Scotland Managing Director says: “We believe that the people who work with us are our greatest asset and, in order for us to succeed, we make sure we retain and attract a talented, innovative and dedicated team. In return, we offer a range of benefits and the opportunity to develop and progress.
“Our remit is wide, covering all aspects of roads asset management and maintenance, from investigation and design through to construction including roads, bridges, electrical installations and landscaping. There’s great satisfaction to be had providing an essential public service as part of our strong, resilient team – this is a chance to help ‘keep Scotland moving’.”
“For instance, working at BEAR Scotland gives civil engineers at all levels the chance to get in involved in a range of work taking projects from investigation and design through to construction.”
There are opportunities the design offices in Perth, Glasgow, Queensferry, Bonnyrigg and Inverness and operational depots throughout the North West and South East of Scotland. Employees are offered a competitive salary and holiday allowance, an employee support scheme as well as the opportunity to work on a hybrid basis.
Our contracts with Transport Scotland compliment the longterm maintenance contracts we have for the M80 between Stepps and Haggs and the A92 Dundee to Arbroath.
BEAR Scotland is an alliance of three prominent roads sector organisations – Vinci/Eurovia, Jacobs and Breedon. Collectively these organisations span the world, allowing BEAR Scotland to draw on their global strength and expertise where required.
