Ian Reid

Birmingham boost

Throughout 2020, Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games will be making £145m worth of contracts available for tender and will recruit 109 people, which will double the current workforce.  

During a turbulent time for the construction industry, Birmingham 2022 is continuing with recruitment and procurement and can still provide some commercial hope and opportunity. The Overlay Turnkey contracts amount to £87m, with services including stands, fencing, tent structures and temporary roof structures, portable/modular buildings, groundworks, civils, internal build out, scaffolding, pedestrian and vehicle trackway and exhibition equipment.

Ian Reid, CEO of Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games says: “We know this is a challenging period for many businesses who are trying to navigate these uncertain times. We remain resolute as we deliver the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games and most critically, we are ramping up our recruitment as well as the search for specialist suppliers who will play a vital role in the successful staging of these Games.

There are a significant number of commercial opportunities associated with the games and we recognise the importance of these for a number of sectors.  In 2020 we will have £145m worth of contracts available for tender and we will recruit 109 people; doubling our current workforce.  These opportunities will begin to be advertised through our website over the coming weeks.    

We have been working to expedite many of these contract and job opportunities to get them ready, to offer some hope and opportunity during these unprecedented times.  We want to say to the industry that we are open for business and are ready to engage with the supply chain as well as find the best talent from the West Midlands within the job market.  In the coming weeks we will ramp up our recruitment and tendering processes for a broad range of services, including construction.

Our supply chain will be critically important to the delivery of the Birmingham Commonwealth Games. We are determined to find and work with the best in class services, from the unrivalled experts within the UK construction industry. More information about all of our contract and job opportunities can be found on the Birmingham 2022 website.”
