Wanted: new Highways Agency chief exec

The Highways Agency is looking for a new chief executive to replace Archie Robertson, it emerged this week.

The Agency said this week that is was on the look out for someone with, "an excellent track record in leading large scale operations".

The agency is also looking for someone with experience in steering through, "change programmes," as the new person will need to push through many of the recommendations of the Nichols Report into the Agency’s major roads programme.

The £180,000 a year post is being offered as a three year fixed term appointment with the, "possibility of permanency".

It is hoped that the Agency will have the new person in place by the time Robertson leaves the agency during the summer at the end of his contract.
