High-speed rail is the worldwide standard for long-distance, inter-city rail travel.  Britain is now investing in high-speed rail to create space on overcrowded networks and to enable large numbers of people to move efficiently.   This requires a new network, High Speed Two, which will take long-distance travellers onto new high-speed trains with fewer stops, enabling them to make their journeys more quickly.  The wider benefits of High Speed Two will be substantial, whether in economic terms, improved connections, an exciting and efficient travel experience or more comfortable, reliable local rail services. Morgan Sindall is an equal opportunities employer and has been accredited with the Positive About Disabled People ‘Two Ticks’ accreditation.  We are also an Investors in People company.

 Morgan Sindall is unable to employ anyone who does not have the legal right to live and work in the UK.

We can potentially consider certain types of flexible working in this role for the right candidate, subject to meeting business needs.
