Immigration News

CH2M HILL has said that it will be creating 500 new jobs across the UK in a range of skilled engineering roles.

Colorado-based CH2M HILL has been operating in the UK for over 20 years and acquired the British engineering firm Halcrow in November 2011, increasing its footprint in its international market outside of the USA. It currently employs over 3,300 people in the UK and has its European Headquarters in London.

Alongside these new jobs, CH2M HILL will also be creating 40 graduate-level positions, as well as offering 30 apprenticeships and 30 paid internships bringing its total investment for the UK for 2013 to £65m.

The new jobs will be created across CH2M HILL’s infrastructure divisions including nuclear; transportation, tunneling and earth engineering; water; environmental services and industrial and advanced technology.

The company is working on UK projects including High Speed 2, Crossrail, Thames Tideway Improvements and the decommissioning of Dounreay. It was also part of CLM, delivery partner to the Olympic Delivery Authority for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

“Following the acquisition of Halcrow and its integration in to CH2M HILL over the last year, I am delighted to be able to announce this significant investment into the UK’s labor market with the creation of 500 new jobs this year across a range of high skilled engineering and technical roles,” said CH2M Hill chairman and CEO Lee McIntire. “I am especially proud that we will be playing such a major role developing future British engineering talent with our graduate, apprenticeship and internship programs.

“The UK remains an attractive place to do business and today’s announcement reflects our commitment to the UK. With the British Government’s clear commitment to deliver new infrastructure and renew aging infrastructure, I am hopeful we will be able to build on this investment today in the years ahead."

Business secretary Vince Cable said, “The creation of 500 new jobs is a considerable investment into the UK market and is a great vote of confidence for the highly skilled engineers here in Britain. Building on our strengths in areas like manufacturing, including engineering, will be crucial to our economic success in the years ahead. Today’s announcement supports our aim of ensuring that the UK can compete with other economies at the highest level by raising the numbers of skilled engineers.”
