High Speed 2 project promoter HS2 Ltd has started its first recruitment campaign by advertising jobs for specialist railway engineers and experienced civil engineers.
HS2 Ltd has adverstised the roles in the Daily Telegraph, its own website and on NCE’s jobs site NCEjobs.co.uk.
The recruitment drive has been triggered by transport secretary Justine Greening’s decision to proceed with the scheme. HS2 is looking to recruit a “number of vacancies” to form a multi-disciplinary technical development team.
“We are now seeking a number of specialist railway and construction engineering professionals to join a multi-disciplinary technical team to develop the standards and principles for high speed rail in Great Britain,” reads the job ad.
“Specifically, you will play a vital role in leading an engineering team in technical development for the HS2 project, from inception to completion, initially on the London to West Midlands Route (Phase I) and onwards to North West and Yorkshire (Phase 2).”
HS2 is looking for expertise in one of the following disciplines: control systems and communications; power and traction; operational development; ergonomics; building, tunnelling, geotechnical; structural and system engineering. It is looking for people with extensive experience of having a lead role in technical development for a major public sector or commercial infrastructure or regeneration project.
