As lockdown restrictions ease and we start to consider travelling again, the future of cross-Channel operator Eurostar remains uncertain.
Eurostar is seeking financial support from the UK Government, citing higher access charges here as a reason.
The French Government has pledged to provide support for the operator, while £200 million has been provided by one of its shareholders, Caisse de Dépôt et Placement du Québec (CDPQ) and Hermes Infrastructure.
Registered in the UK and supporting 3,000 jobs either with the business or in the supply chain, the company is, however, 55% owned by SNCF (French state rail), 40% by CDPQ/Hermes and 5% by SNCB (Belgian state railways).
So: Should the UK Government provide financial assistance to Eurostar?

The UK rail network is under constant repair. Although most people probably think of new tracks or station improvements there are a large number of smaller tasks that need to be completed - all the time. My client is currently responsible for the minor civils framework throughout the North West and is looking for a Project Manager to direct the works from offices in Wigan.

Reporting to the Contracts Manager your role will be to manage a high volume of minor works by monitoring programme, reviewing scope, assigning resource, whilst ensuring that any queries are answered quickly and any issues/delays are reported on in a timely fashion.

To be considered for the role you will need to have a knowledge of a wide variety of minor works contracts within civil engineering on the UK railways.
