As one of the most prominent UK infrastructure projects, there is a plethora of HS2 jobs available at all stages of the project. Currently valued at £350million, HS2 is the biggest single rail infrastructure scheme in Europe. As such the project will dominate demand for construction-related skills for decades.
According to data gathered by the University of Dundee, the CITB and Experian, the unprecedented demand for skills will involve average requirements for 4,980 construction operatives, 1,015 construction designers and 735 construction managers each month over the course of the 26-year project delivery period, as well as non-construction, rolling stock and railway systems professionals.
Morson’s expertise within rail and infrastructure markets is exceptional. Through its Morson and Vital entities, the Morson Group has HS2 jobs across disciplines, delivering both blue and white collar skills and has a specific sourcing strategy in place to ensure long-term delivery of skills to the HS2 project.
Thousands of skills are required at all phases of the HS2 project, many of which are already scarce resource. As both the UK’s No.1 Technical and No.1 Rail Recruiter, we have the existing talent pools and long-term resourcing strategies to ensure skills are available when they are needed.
