As you may be aware the Lower Thames Crossing is currently undertaking a series of ground investigations and surveys at locations throughout North Kent to help Highways England (HE) to improve their proposals and to develop their application for the Development Consent Order.

HE want to make sure that local people and businesses are able to make the most of the opportunities that their investment in the area will create so in partnership with Eventbrite (events organiser) and their main contractor Balfour Beatty, they are running a recruitment fair in Kent to promote the jobs within the local area. During this phase of the project the roles include ground workers, plant operators, and gangers/supervisors, with many other roles also available.

The event is free and a great way to learn more about the opportunities available. It is being held on Thursday 6th February 2020 with a prompt 4pm start and finished at 6.30pm

Balfour Beatty, partnering with Highways England on the Lower Thames Crossing, are holding a recruitment fair to promote jobs which are available at this stage. Jobs include groundworkers, gangers/supervisors and plant operators. Many other roles are also available.

You must have an up to date CSCS card. Experience is preferred.

The Lower Thames Crossing is the UK’s most ambitious road project since the M25 was completed more than 30 years ago.

It would unlock new business opportunities and make journeys more reliable and quicker, whether travelling for work, leisure, or visiting family and friends. It would feature:

  • The third largest bored tunnel in the world, 53 metres below the River Thames
  • 5 miles of new road, bridges, viaducts and underpasses
  • Improvements to existing roads including M25, A2 and A13

If you have relevant experience in construction services, come along to this free event to learn more about the opportunities available at Balfour Beatty. You will be able to meet with our supply chain partners, register and apply for roles.

We therefore recommend to bring some CV’s with you.
