Rolling basis

Description

At HS2 we offer a two-year rotational graduate programme, providing you with the opportunity to stretch and challenge yourself in a series of placements. The programme is designed to give you as much experience as possible across different teams in a particular business area.

We have a total of 2 graduate opportunities available in London all of which will require travel to various site locations across the HS2 line of route. Graduate opportunities will be available across a variety of HS2 teams including but not limited to those listed below. After the assessment stage, we will assign successful candidates accordingly based on business requirements. After completion of the 2-year graduate programme graduates will be transferred into a role within the same discipline, but not necessarily the same business area.

The Hybrid Bill Delivery Directorate works with the Department for Transport (DfT) to obtain the necessary legal powers from Parliament to construct Phase 2b of HS2. The Bill seeking consent for the latest phase of HS2 was introduced into Parliament in January 2022.
