Station’s contractors (Balfour Beatty/VINCI/SYSTRA and Mace/Dragados) in addition to four most prominent construction contractors (Balfour Beatty VINCI (BBV)); Eiffage, Kier, Ferrovial, BAM Nutall (EKFB)); Align and Skanska Costain STRABAG (SCS)) will aid HS2 Ltd in this event. Over 400,000 job opportunities (a huge range of work in construction, supply chain, water and drainage systems, and site catering) will be available.
Mark Thurston, CEO of HS2 Ltd, announced, “This year’s ‘Meet the Contractor’ event at HS2 will be the biggest ever, and we would like to see businesses from across the UK register for the opportunity to talk with our contractors. Experience from previous years shows that this helps put them in the best position to be a part of building Britain’s new high-speed railway. HS2 will be one of the cornerstones of the country’s economic recovery as we work through the challenges of Covid-19, creating and sustaining long term jobs across all sectors.”
