Ready for HS2

Share this post:

New online workshops have been launched by Bondholder the East Midlands Chamber to help SMEs be ready for HS2 supply chain opportunities.

The “Fit4HS2” sessions aim to equip small businesses in the East Midlands with the tools they need to compete for supply chain contracts in HS2 and other major infrastructure projects.

The programme has been developed in line with the Government’s HS2 supplier guide and will cover elements such as supply chain opportunity details; best practice in tendering; equality, diversity and inclusion; environmental policies; and skills, education and employment development.

While the sessions are designed with projects relating to HS2 in mind, they will also provide businesses with the practical information that can be applied to other large infrastructure schemes and the corresponding supply chain opportunities.

Ian Bates, sector forum and representation manager at East Midlands Chamber, said: “Many companies are eagerly searching for new business opportunities right now so it’s the perfect time to ensure they are demonstrating best practice in order to win supply chain contracts.

“Being ‘supply chain fit’ as a result of having the desired policies and practices in place isn’t just vital for those wanting to work on HS2, but it will put them in prime position to take advantage of other key infrastructure projects.
