Linum Consult and Brunel awarded two-year contract to deliver temporary staff for ground breaking RB Rail as high speed rail project

Linum Consult has joined forces with Brunel Energy Europe BV to source the temporary talent behind Europe’s most ambitious high-speed rail project. As part of a landmark two-year contract, the partnership will provide contract professionals for Rail Baltica, the 870km rail infrastructure set to link Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia with the rest of the EU rail network.

Mark Loader, RB Rail AS Chief Program Officer comments:

“The need for short-term specialists is a common practice in large infrastructure projects in situations where specific one-off tasks are planned or a rapid increase in workload over a fixed period is expected. The selection of permanent staff for high-speed rail specialists in the Baltic States and elsewhere in Europe can take more than six months, which is why in such situations temporary specialists are involved to ensure continuous project progress and meet the deadlines.”

The alliance builds on Linum Consults thriving three-year relationship with RB Rail AS, who previously looked to Linum Consult for the recruitment of EU hires outside the Baltic countries for the €5.8 billion HSR project, Rail Baltica. Linum Consult are now thrilled to put our expertise of over 12 rail, metro and high-speed rail programmes to work for RB Rail AS, in collaboration with the global workforce specialists at Brunel, to supply temporary specialists.
