Sam: Graduate at HS2

Sam: Graduate at HS2

I began HS2 as a graduate in project management and was not only provided with great placements throughout the 24-month programme working on a variety of different, and very complex, projects, but I also achieved my Project Manager’s Qualification through the APM by the end of the programme.

Find your career

Graduates are very fortunate in that we are able to engage immediately and on a regular basis with the senior executives of the organisation. This is priceless for your personal and professional development, as well as your confidence.

The HS2 graduate programme has provided me with the best possible foundation for a career that I am highly grateful for and proud of. The programme offered a huge variety of experience, provided me with a lot of flexibility to tailor my experience and gave me instant responsibility in the projects I became involved in.

The best part of the structure of the graduate programme is the flexibility it offers in terms of placements and projects to get involved in. I now work in the Commercial Development team as a Manager and I am on my way to becoming a Chartered Surveyor. Furthermore, I still use my project management skills and training on a daily basis, and I believe I am still developing a broad set of capabilities. I do not believe many other organisations would have provided me with the freedom to follow my interests and seek a job within the company that I feel so passionately about.
