Join this webinar to hear from speakers on how HS2 has a critical role in Britain's post pandemic recovery

The most recent ONS study reported unemployment at 5%, the highest rate in 5 years and meaning around 1.7 million people are without a job.

HS2 has a critical role in Britain’s post pandemic recovery, creating and supporting thousands of livelihoods and benefiting SMEs all over the country. There are now over 15,000 jobs supported by the programme and 2,000 businesses working on the project. 98% of the contracts available are going to UK-based businesses, 70% of which are with SMEs.

As we move into construction on Phase One, HS2 and its contractors are recruiting for over 20,000 new roles, which will be available to view over the coming years at the HS2 Jobs Board. At peak construction, 30,000 people, including 2,000 apprentices will be designing and building HS2.

Join our webinar to hear how about the critical part HS2 is playing to get Britain back to work after the pandemic and the job opportunities available.

On the panel will be:

Ambrose Quashie, Skills Manager, HS2 Ltd

Jo Field, President, Women in Transport and Strategic Adviser, Costain Skanksa JV and Skanska Costain STRABAG JV

Department of Work and Pensions spokesperson

Karen Moffat, Administration Assistant, Align

The session will be chaired by Natalie Rose, Corporate HSE Advisor, HS2 Ltd.

The panel will be followed by a question and answer session.
