UK-based Linum Consult helps source temp contractors for Baltic rail project

UK-based global recruiter Linum Consult has joined forced with Brunel Energy Europe BV to source the temporary talent behind a key European high-speed rail project.

As part of a two-year contract, the partnership will provide contractors for Rail Baltica, the 870km (541 miles) rail infrastructure set to link Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia with the rest of the EU rail network, Linum Consult has announced.

Temporary professional staff will be brought onboard for a range of engineering, project management, health & safety, quality and environmental roles. The contract solutions will offer capabilities to support specialist tasks, sudden spikes in workload and critical construction milestones, the announcement said.

The alliance builds on Linum Consult’s three-year relationship with RB Rail AS, in which Linum Consult recruited EU hires outside the Baltic countries for the €5.8bn (£4.96bn) high-speed rail project, Rail Baltica, the announcement said. 

Linum Consult specialises in the construction, engineering, mining and oil & gas sectors.
