NY Highways Opportunities

Welcome to NY Highways.

NY Highways is committed to making a meaningful, positive impact on our communities by contributing to resilience, safety, sustainable economic growth, and respecting and enhancing the environment in which we live.  We will seek to actively reduce the carbon footprint of previous highways operations and aim to recycle 80% of waste materials created by the business.

It is our intention to provide added value in 2021 / 22 and beyond by delivering desirable outcomes for the Council: working with more North Yorkshire SMEs; contributing to North Yorkshire’s economic growth by supporting people back into work; and enhancing skills in the workforce. For every £1 we spend, we will target £0.70 being re-invested back into the local economy. NY Highways values its people above all else and will invest in them to ensure that all our people are encouraged to maximise their potential, contribute to our future success as a business and add value to our communities in a socially responsible and sustainable way.

As the Managing Director of this brand new enterprise, I am focussed on creating and developing a workforce that is energetic, dynamic and diverse - I am excited about the potential of NY Highways and the career opportunities for those who join us. With the benefit of a very stable and profitable platform, we are poised for genuine and sustainable growth, so I am keen to hear from individuals who share my enthusiasm and passion. I also want to build a team that is representative of the county as a whole; Yorkshire is a region, which embraces cultural diversity, and where success is encouraged irrespective of gender, race or background. So this is where you come in…

If you would like to explore the opportunity to work with us and help me to create a welcoming and thriving workplace, please get in touch.

Managing Director, NY Highways Ltd

About NY Highways

NY Highways is a newly formed highways maintenance company that has been established to provide highway services to the council. Previously run through the private sector, these services are now housed (from June 2021) within a ‘Teckal’ company, owned by the council. It forms one of a number of companies owned by the council which make up the Brierley Group.

It is our aim to become an industry leader within the highways sector. To be known for being modern and innovative in our approach to delivering highways services - whilst supporting, developing and rewarding our workforce in a way they truly value, because it offers them a balanced quality of life the chance for career progression and fair reward for the work they do.

The Brierley Group

North Yorkshire County Council is a very forward thinking public sector organisation - award winning, commercially focussed and with multiple successful commercial trading businesses already. This established portfolio of trading businesses is known as the Brierley Group, of which NY Highways is the latest addition.

These Council owned companies operate in a commercial context and are required to achieve sustainable growth and profits, specifically to enable North Yorkshire County Council to continue to reinvest so as to better meet customer needs and invest in the residents and communities of North Yorkshire.

Teckal status

This status means that as the shareholder, the council can award contracts directly without procurement, so the company is in an exclusively strong position to deliver high quality highways services and achieve long term ethical and stable growth. At the same time, the intention is to continue to grow the business by identifying new commercial opportunities, with the ambition to deliver services to other public sector bodies as well as to private sector clients over the longer term.
