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?

As an infrastructure specialist, Murphy directly employs more than 4,000 engineers, professional managers and skilled operatives across the world. We operate in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, USA, Australia and the Middle East. We have a number of specialist capabilities such as pipelines, process, marine, tunnelling and piling, and we invest heavily in our substantial holding of plant, equipment and facilities.

Site Management
Nationwide - Contracts including: East & West Coast, Trans Pennine Upgrade, Birmingham to London, HS2, East West connection (Cambridge & Oxford) and framework agreements such as CP6

Rail projects are like the trains themselves. To keep moving, they need constant input of positive actions. They need to be driven from the front, hands-on. This is where you can make a real difference as part of our Site Management team.

We are building on our reputation for delivering world-class infrastructure. As we expand our Transportation business through additional contract wins, we aim to cement our position as an end-to-end service provider to the transportation sector: one family, one team, one Murphy.
Now, with a diverse range of rail contracts underway - and many more in the pipeline - we are looking for an equally diverse range of hands-on Site Managers to join us in planning and delivering small and medium projects throughout the UK.
As well as Site Manager opportunities throughout the UK, we would also be interested in hearing from competent Project Managers, Construction Managers and those with General Foreman experience in the Rail industry.

In each case the role will demand strong site experience to address a constant flow of civil/structural engineering challenges, with involvement in everything from Earthworks and Drainage schemes, construction of stations, new build substations, power upgrades and installing bridges.
You can also expect a steady flow of fresh opportunities to develop your expertise and build your career, including the potential to progress to Project Manager or Construction Manager.

Qualified at least to HNC in Civil Engineering, or with a degree in Civil Engineering/Construction Management, you should have amassed the knowledge to attain Chartered level of ICE or be working towards APM (we will always provide support to achieve professional status). You will certainly be an accomplished, inspirational line manager and should have an extensive background in site/contract management. Rail industry experience is preferred, but if you can demonstrate a depth of knowledge in the broader construction industry, and have a desire to move into rail, then we would welcome your application
