HS2 Recruitment Case Study

HS2 Recruitment Case Study 


What is the HS2 Project? 


It is one of the most substantial transport infrastructure projects ever built in the UK. The project aims to provide vital transportation links between cities and regions across the United Kingdom. It will help deliver a more productive economy, better able to compete globally. By making it faster and easier to travel for work and leisure, HS2 aims to increase trade, boost tourism and regenerate towns and cities. Hundreds and thousands of jobs will be supported by Local Authorities’ development plans to capitalise on HS2.

Construction has now started on Phase One focused on linking London and Birmingham by 2026. Phase Two will run from the West Midlands to Manchester in the west and Leeds in the east with plans to complete the network by 2033.
