HS2 announces Recruitment Fair for Rail Project
Posted on: 14/09/2015

HS2 Ltd, the company who are developing the high speed rail network between London and Birmingham, have announced over 100 job vacancies at their Birmingham headquarters.

A ‘recruitment day’ will be held in the city this month from the 17th - 19th September. The company have announced they are looking for specialist roles to be filled, including project managers, civil/rail/site engineers, contract and commercial management, as well as HR, IT, health & safety, and legal services.

Prospective candidates will have the opportunity to find out more about the roles available and what the positions will exactly entail. Leader of Birmingham City Council, Sir Albert Bore, has said that the ‘vast and ambitious talent pool’ of Birmingham’s graduates will allow candidates to involve themselves with the country’s biggest infrastructure project in years. Simon Kirby, the HS2 Ltd Chief Executive, supported these words by adding that the project will boost jobs, skills, and economic growth.

HS2, who are responsible for the design, engineering, and construction process, plan to begin work in 2017 with a predicted completion date set for 2025. It is then hoped that the first running service will commence the following year, in 2026.

The estimated cost of the route has increased from £34.2 billion to £50 billion, and it is thought that several passenger lines would need to close for a total of 133 weekends for its completion. However, when the line starts operating, the total time of the route from London to Birmingham would reduce from 1 hour and 24 minutes to just 49 minutes. Once this route is established, plans will be put into place to extend routes to Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, and Edinburgh.
