HS2 recruiting for hundreds of construction jobs

Hundreds of new jobs have been announced today (June 30) at HS2 Ltd, across a broad range of disciplines, from engineering and project management to land and property, procurement and commercial.

These are just a few amongst those to be advertised from today as part of a three-month direct recruitment drive.

Over 300 roles will be based in Birmingham, West Midlands, and the new roles announced today will push the total number of jobs the project has supported to over 10,000 once recruited.

The jobs boost originates from the Government’s backing of the project earlier this year and its placing HS2 as integral to the their ‘levelling up’ agenda, which will heighten reginal economies outside of London, improve Britain’s railways and deliver a cleaner, greener, transport solution.  

HS2 Minister, Andrew Stephenson, said: “These jobs are a welcome boost for workers across the country at this challenging time, providing the opportunity to play a crucial part in delivering HS2, an integral part of improving connectivity and levelling up our country.

“We continue to work with the transport and construction industry to accelerate projects, where safely possible, to kickstart our economy, provide more employment opportunities and drive our recovery as we build out of Covid-19.”

CEO of HS2 Ltd, Mark Thurston, said: “With many people facing uncertain job security and worried about future prospects in the current crisis, I hope this will be welcome news for anyone seeking a long-term and rewarding career with a company that places health, safety, equality and diversity at the very top of its priority list.

“As part of the HS2 team you’ll be shaping British history; transforming our Victorian railways and supporting the regeneration and economic prosperity of towns and cities right along the route.”
