HS2 Ltd to recruit community engagement specialists.
A team of dedicated community engagement specialists is to be recruited by HS2 Ltd to understand and respond to the views of people living along the route of HS2, Britain’s new high speed rail network.
HS2 Ltd, has announced a recruitment drive for community engagement specialists, following feedback from the project’s Residents’ Commissioner, local authorities and local communities.
The eleven specialist roles will be based in regions along the proposed route for Phase One of HS2, between London and the West Midlands. Their primary role will be to ensure that HS2 is both talking and listening to all those who are affected by the project in their area.
This will involve responsibility for the running of local information events and ongoing dialogue with communities to ensure the organisation listens to and acts on people’s concerns.
The roles will also help HS2 to better recognise the unique needs of each community as the project moves towards construction.
The successful candidates will become the ‘go-to’ people within the communities and will be integral in identifying local issues, needs and requirements.
HS2 Ltd Senior Area Engagement Manager, Jonathan Lord said:
“As HS2 moves towards construction we recognise that it will have a significant impact on the lives of local residents and businesses who live and work along the line of route.”
“We are looking to build a strong team of experienced community engagement specialists to put the concerns of people at the heart of what we do and to give us a thorough understanding of local issues.”
“We need to continue to listen to and act on local concerns about HS2 and having the right people on the ground is critical to our community engagement.”
