What is HS2?

HS2 is the new High-Speed Rail link planned for 2026 to connect London and Birmingham and by 2033 include Leeds and Manchester to create a more connected Britain on a faster network.

London to Birmingham in 49 minutes

Traditional transport lines may take upwards of 1 hour 20 minutes. With connecting trains and multiple stops, this can easily be a long and tedious journey, mostly unsuitable for a London work commute.

The new HS2 line cuts that time to 49 minutes allowing for more external London commuting, therefore lower entry prices to jobs and working in the capital.

Whereas a typical car journey might take 5 hours, a standard train on average 3 hours, an interconnected rail network combining new and old stations with the HS2 line can cut these times to an affordable day out. Even Scotland would only be 3 hours 30 away.

All this growth, development and future building takes, well builders. Designers, planners, construction workers, engineers make up part of the team to building this future. And that’s where we come in.

Construction and HS2

At Randstad we are committed to seeing the future of a more connected Britain, improving workforce distribution and opportunities by thinking human forward first. As HS2 construction begins in 2019 we sit at the forefront of fulfilling jobs.

With huge growth in the construction industry and CPE as a whole, now is the time to be a part of a 20-year development plan of HS2.
