About HS2

Why Join HS2?

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity in every way. Our vision includes the people who will gain jobs and educational opportunities created by HS2’s construction phase. Regeneration and long-term employment when HS2 trains are running from 2026. And families and businesses who will enjoy better quality of life and new opportunities resulting from the strategic debate –generated by HS2’s planning phase- around Transport for the North, better east-west connections, and the proposed National Transport Strategy.

As the largest infrastructure project in Europe, HS2 is already opening up new skills and networks for people and businesses throughout the UK – for the supply chain, for apprenticeships, and for the thousands of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) employees we’ll need in the future.

Could you be part of our increasingly diverse workforce?

Building a high speed railway calls for lots of specialist roles, from archaeologist to environmental advisor, tunnelling engineer to stakeholder manager and town planner.

Such a big project brings together people from very varied backgrounds and specialisms, so we welcome communicative people with enquiring minds and team spirit.

Our working environment is as inclusive as HS2 itself. From professional development to unique challenges and opportunities, we’ll support you at the leading edge.
