Blackwell Earthmoving LTD's recruitment drive

Blackwell director, Niall Fraser, told Finning News: "I see HS2 as a big opportunity to attract school leavers, to attract graduates into earthmoving as a specialist career.

"Whether it be in civil engineering, or geotechnics, or quantity surveying. The numbers of equipment being used will require a huge workforce, and that workforce needs to be more than competent.

"It needs to be skilled and preferably experienced as well."

Blackwell describes itself as one of the biggest earthmoving contractors in the UK.

A spokesperson for the company said: "Our mission is to be our customers’ specialist earthworks contractor of choice and we are seeking new recruits to help us achieve

that goal and join our long-standing and experienced workforce."
