DISCOVER AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU
EKFB, the joint venture company responsible for the central section of the works, has awarded two contracts to Carmichael UK.
The first contract is for the supply of permanent and contract recruitment of white-collar workers. This includes Engineers, Surveyors , Quantity Surveyors , Quality Professionals, Health and Safety Professionals , Logistics Coordinators, Administrators, Management and Supervisory personnel.
The second contract is for the supply of blue-collar personnel including all trades, logistics, plant and labouring roles. Both of these contracts are perfectly suited to ex-military and reservists and both contracts offer fantastic opportunities to start a new career away from the military but using the skills learned in the military.
Working for Carmichael UK on the HS2 project will provide you with stable, long-term, competitively paid employment, with opportunities to upskill as the project progresses.
Carmichael UK have multiple opportunities for skilled and unskilled roles, many of which are eligible for payments of lodge and or travel allowance. Carmichael UK, awarded Bronze in the Armed Forces Covenant Employers Recognition Scheme, understands the unique and highly sought-after transferable skills of military personnel, and wants to speak to you now about these roles.
“We have a huge number of opportunities for work within this project, both short and long-term, which we know will suit ex-military personnel and reservists. We also want to let serving personnel know even though you may not be looking for work now, we will happily speak to you about what opportunities could be available to you in the future, as well as providing advice on what you may need to do to upskill,” said Managing Director, Rod Carmichael.
“Our entry level jobs, or ‘blue collar roles’ are well paid and provide training opportunities to enable you to develop your skills. Thirty-five years ago, I started my career as a dump truck driver and by taking the opportunities given to me, I progressed to become a Site Agent. I want to see other people take the opportunities available to upskill themselves and transform their lives whilst building one of the most iconic and important infrastructure projects in Europe today. We believe that although you may start your career in an entry-level role, the opportunities to develop your career in the future on the HS2 site through us are endless.”
With entry level positions having the potential to earn packages of more than £40,00 per annum as a starting wage, these roles will be in high demand. Examples of the estimated weekly earnings for Plant and Vehicle Marshalls and HGV drivers, which are entry level roles, are shown below:
