High Speed Two (HS2) is unlocking the potential of our cities - and unmissable opportunities for land assembly and property acquisition professionals.

We’re developing the UK’s new high-speed rail network. It will create significant extra capacity on the existing network and significantly reduce travel times between cities – not just to and from London but also between the cities of the Midlands and the North. New stations will provide vast regeneration opportunities along the route. Simply put, HS2 is the biggest rail infrastructure project in the UK and the largest land assembly programme in 70 years.

This means the team will be undertaking the full spectrum of land assembly and property acquisitions along the phase 1 route, including residential, leisure, commercial, retail, and rural or agricultural businesses.

Our Acquisitions are responsible for acquiring land and property required for the railway and passing possession to the Delivery team in accordance with the programme. The team will also undertake negotiating settlement of compensation claims, as well as the identification and registration of strategic acquisitions or the project and provide advice for the Phase 2 teams. 

Our Land Assembly team will be responsible for negotiating access to land and for the development and service of many thousands of individual compulsory purchase notices over a period of years.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity. Join us, and you’ll be building a fantastic legacy for Britain and your career.

Currently we are recruiting for a wide range number of land and property focused roles. Discover more, and apply, at
