This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the team that manages and improves one of the busiest motorways in Europe - the M25.

CPS has a 30-year contract with Connect Plus on behalf of Highways England.

With a staff of around 600 people, based at seven locations across the network, CPS carries out routine maintenance and whole-life management of the thousands of M25 assets.
