Professional Development Programmes (PDP)

The professional development programme (PDP) has been designed to help attract and retain employees in hard to fill roles within the Environment, Transport and Infrastructure (ETI) directorate. It is an opportunity for candidates to earn a salary while developing their knowledge, skills and experience. Some PDP programmes offer the opportunity to work towards a nationally recognised qualification. Some examples of PDP roles are highway construction compliance technician, transport planner and engineer. Candidates recruited in PDP roles will enter a programme at a level/ grade appropriate to their qualifications, knowledge and experience. The criteria for each stage of development and progression will be set out in a learning agreement. Mentoring support will be provided by experienced colleagues.

Please see our current Professional Development Programme (PDP) vacancies.
