HS2 have launched a new jobs site to promote the estimated 20,000 roles that Phase One of the project is creating, some at Old Oak, in the months and years ahead, the first time all opportunities to work directly on HS2 have been available to search in one place.
This follows the announcement of the 22,000 job opportunities available on the high speed rail project, when it officially started construction in September 2020. The initiative has the backing of the Department for Work and Pensions.
The new digital platform, hosted on the HS2 website , offers those looking for work or a change of career, the opportunity to search the very latest vacancies with construction partners and station contractors delivering the London to Birmingham section of the railway.
It has been developed as part of a job brokerage partnership model, bringing together local authorities, enterprise partnerships, charities and employment support services along the 140-mile route of the first phase of the new railway. Job brokerage partners will play an integral role in supporting individuals from local communities, disadvantaged and underrepresented groups into employment on the project, in line with objectives set out in our Skills, Employment and Education Strategy.
