This event will be delivered as part  of People and Skills Week and is open to all businesses looking for business development opportunities, available as part of the HS2 supply chain. It will provide practical information on what is required of businesses to access the wide-ranging procurement opportunities that HS2 will bring to the East Midlands. This session will also be of interest to the education sector and those supporting people back into employment.

The session is brought to you in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council

Delivered by Mark Warrilow, Skills Stakeholder Manager – Phase 2 (Skills, Employment & Education), HS2 Ltd, this session will cover the HS2 commitment to delivering a co-ordinated programme of skills, employment and education activities. The HS2 Skills, Employment and Education (SEE) Strategy sets out how the project is creating sustainable SEE opportunities in HS2 Ltd’s supply chain through the use of procurement levers.

We will hear about HS2 Ltd's approach to procurement, including detail of what this means for the supply chain, in relation to the SEE outputs covering:

  • employing apprentices
  • providing training and employment for workless individuals;
  • employing workless graduates;
