Project Update: HS2

We have multiple opportunities to work for Tier 1 contractors on one of the biggest projects in the UK.

HS2 remains on schedule with main works contracts having been awarded in July. Enabling Works contractors are already on board and preparing activities on the ground over the next few months and we're keen to talk to candidates about a number of opportunities including Ecologists, GIS Technicians and more. To view all roles, scroll down.

The £900m package of enabling works is shared between seven firms in three consortia. A Costain Skanska joint venture, a three-way partnership between Morgan Sindall, BAM Nuttall and Ferrovial Agroman and Laing O’Rourke Construction in a joint venture with J Murphy & Sons. The early works will include site investigations, enabling works, demolition and land preparation on phase 1 which will link London to Birmingham and the West Coast Main Line near Lichfield, a total of 225 route-km.
