More about HS2


Our Values

At HS2, we have four values underpinning everything we do:

  • SAFETY: Caring for our workforce, our passengers and the public by creating an environment where no one gets hurt.
  • LEADERSHIP: Using innovation and challenge to lead by example.
  • RESPECT: Understanding others, recognising their value and behaving accordingly.
  • INTEGRITY: Acting fairly, transparently and consistently.


We recognise the importance of drawing senior-level hires from the widest possible pool of applicants. In January, we set new equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) reporting requirements for all our search agencies.

This data will inform our strategy for attracting more diverse candidates for all of our roles, including female candidates for senior roles.

We have also developed new recruitment materials with our supply chain partner, TMP, which are reflective of the HS2 ambition to be an inclusive employer.
