Ahead of its arrival into Birmingham, the team leading the design and construction of Britain’s new railway, High Speed Two (HS2), is hitting the streets with a brand-new community roadshow .
The HS2 roadshow will visit towns and cities from north to south this summer, as part of a bumper programme of community-focused activity highlighting the thousands of jobs, skills, training and new business opportunities that HS2 is creating.
HS2’s roadshow will make three stops in Birmingham and the team is proud to be supporting two of the city’s annual event highlights as part of its tour. The events will allow residents and visitors to find out more about the plans already underway to bring Britain’s new low carbon railway to the second city.More about each location
HS2 has set itself ambitious targets to bring local people and underrepresented groups into employment, whilst simultaneously creating opportunities for small and medium-sized companies in the local area to grow. To help achieve its aim, HS2 is teaming up with Birmingham-based SME Legacy Consultants to bolster its engagement with young people and BAME communities right across the city.
Experts from all areas of the HS2 project will be on hand at each roadshow event, armed with a wealth of resources to experience during the event or to take away. So, if you’re looking for a new career, or want to find out how your business might benefit from one of 400,000 contract opportunities generated from the first phase of construction works, then head down to the roadshow to find out more.
