Female working on HS2

HS2 continues recruitment drive for 2021

In the final months of 2020, September through to December, HS2 Ltd recruited 300 people out of the 500 they anticipated filling their new job openings.

Those roles were in addition to over 20,000 jobs that HS2’s main works construction partners and station contractor announced they would be created to deliver the London – Birmingham section of the railway.

HS2 Ltd was recently awarded for its pledge to ensuring equality and transparency in its recruitment practices and is proud to be the only UK-based company to have achieved Gold standard rating in all four categories of the Clear Assured equality and diversity best practice benchmark.

With a further 200 vacancies to recruit from January 2021 onwards, HS2 Ltd.’s resourcing team is actively encouraging individuals who may be out of work or seeking a new career, to register their interest.

During the first quarter of 2021, HS2 Ltd will be recruiting for roles in a number of sectors including digital engineering, land and property, IT and project controls.

It is also looking for individuals to join its two-year graduate programme and will continue to support its commitment to bring new apprentices into the business with a dedicated recruitment drive in February 2021.

Simon Fawkes-Underwood, HS2 Ltd.’s Head of Resourcing said: “With the construction of HS2 now well underway, there has never been a more exciting time to join this transformative project.

“The scale of HS2 and the career opportunities it presents are so diverse, which is why the skills match assessment is such a great tool. People often underestimate the transferable nature of their own skills and experience and we’re supporting them in recognising the opportunities that HS2 can unlock”.
