Hear from Kellie Lynch, Planning Manager at HS2 Ltd

As a Planning Manager within the Civils and Stations & Systems teams, there are so many things I love about our HS2 project and my role.  I could honestly talk forever and a day on it.

HS2 is Europe’s largest infrastructure project
and uniquely complex, there is something for every planner whatever your preference of industry, scope, or project phase; they all integrate together. It is a once in a generation opportunity, and if you’re my age, once in a lifetime.

Behind the scenes HS2’s planners have been quietly delivering key projects since its creation in 2009. The team has been involved in tender reviews, contract awards, concept designs and now the execution of enabling works.

Don’t think that it goes unnoticed. HS2 listens.  We listen when planners talk about lessons learned and encourage fresh ideas. HS2 also rewards - providing promotion opportunities or supporting colleagues to build on their planning portfolio and move across the project. This is why we proudly promote our motto “I care, You count, We matter”.

Planning is an exciting world. So, whether you are new to planning or are a seasoned veteran, it offers rewarding opportunities at all levels - come join us!

It received the award in recognition of its commitment to embedding inclusive best practice into all elements of its work, including the design and delivery of Britain’s new railway.
