Tarmac, the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions company, has reaffirmed its commitment to skills development by welcoming 37 university leavers to its nationwide graduate scheme.
Working within an established team, each new recruit will complete a two-year placement offering graduates a balance of hands-on experience to develop their skills in a chosen specialism alongside a formal training programme.
Commenting on the scheme, Martin Riley, senior vice president, Tarmac, said: “Delivering projects of all scales requires skilled people and attracting new entrants to the sector is key. Our graduate scheme is just one of the ways that we are demonstrating our commitment to developing our future leaders at Tarmac and enabling individuals to make their mark on our business.”
This new intake marks the third successive year of Tarmac’s graduate programme and the company are now celebrating the results. Following the completion of the scheme, 18 recruits from Tarmac’s 2014 graduate intake have accepted full-time positions in the company.
Louise Aspinall, area technical manager covering the North East of England and Northern Ireland, said: “Over the last two years, I’ve increased my knowledge and worked across a number of projects while at the same time undertaking training opportunities offered by the business. It’s been a privilege to work on some major infrastructure projects and I look forward to progressing my career at Tarmac.”
Tarmac’s 2017 graduate scheme is now open for applicants. For further information about applying for a position at Tarmac, visit https://www.tarmaccareers.com/graduates/
