High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd

High Speed Two (HS2) is unlocking the potential of our cities - and unmissable opportunities for business graduates.

We’re developing the UK’s new high-speed rail network. It will significantly reduce travel times between cities – not just to London but also between the Midlands and the North. It will free up extra capacity on the existing network, making travel more pleasurable for everyone. And the network will open up new markets, creating around 25,000 new jobs.

Simply put, HS2 is the biggest rail infrastructure project in the UK. This means brand new cutting-edge stations, trains that make the journey as good as getting there, and infrastructure that is shaped to hide in the landscape. The secret is all in the planning: how many tonnes of steel for the track? Who designs the bridges? How do you create a new habitat for animals, build a new station, or grow and plant 7 million trees?

For the people that work with us, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. And now, we’re looking for our first intake of brilliant graduates to lead the charge. You’ll be part of an operation that feels like a start-up organisation – only with very substantial support.

Training & Profiles

Initially, you’ll join a two-year programme, and take four or five placements across the business, spending four to six months on each. But this is a career, not just a project. And we’ll prepare you for a long-term future. During the programme you’ll receive a mix of formal and on the job training and support. We’ll develop your management and leadership skills along with providing you personal development, everything from influencing to personal impact skills. Everything you need to be a future leader in the business.

After your programme you’ll be placed in a business area that best suits you:

  • Planning
  • Cost Analysis
  • Risk Analysis
  • Project Controls
  • Project Management
  • Business Management.

So join us, and you’ll be building a fantastic legacy for your career while you’re constructing one for Britain.
