High Speed Two (HS2) Ltd is the company responsible for developing, delivering and promoting the High Speed Two (HS2) rail network in the UK. HS2 is a dedicated high-speed railway that will connect London to Birmingham from 2026 and then, along a Y-shaped route, to Manchester in the West and Leeds in the East from 2033. It will provide fast, frequent and reliable connections for over 100 cities and towns, including 8 of our largest cities. By doing so, it will open up local and regional markets, attract investment and improve job opportunities for hundreds of thousands of people across the whole country.
We have circa 1600 employees, who are mostly based in Birmingham and are responsible for ensuring that the High Speed Two rail network is:
- designed, built and operates to the highest safety standards
- built and operates sustainably, responsibly and respectfully of the communities, wildlife and places it affects
- reliable, seamless and easy to use for all passengers and well-integrated with existing transport systems
We work with our suppliers to build and develop a skilled workforce that supports economic growth across the UK.
We pride ourselves on having a diverse employee workforce and know that our equality, diversity and inclusion policy addresses the need for inclusion in our workforce and the planning, design, construction and operation of the High Speed Two (HS2) project.
