The vacancies available to 2022’s intake of graduates include:

  • Engineering roles supporting HS2’s vast construction programme.

  • Roles within HS2’s commercial and procurement teams, managing contracts and suppliers withing HS2’s supply chain.
  • Opportunities to join the Hybrid Bill team, which works with the Department for Transport to obtain the necessary legal powers from Parliament to construct future phases of the railway.

HS2 are keen to recognise the vital role graduates can play in their plans.

Karen Davis, HS2’s Talent Manager said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for 16 talented graduates to begin their career.

“Learning from the very best in the industry while working on a truly historic and innovative project.

“We create new opportunities every year for those starting out on the career ladder.

“We recognise that investing in future talent is vital to the successful delivery of HS2 and major infrastructure projects of the future.”
