Tarmac laying the foundations for graduate careers

Tarmac, the UK’s leading sustainable building materials and construction solutions company, has reaffirmed its commitment to skills development by launching its nationwide graduate recruitment programme.

The programme will see 44 university leavers join the company in 2018 in a variety of roles including general management, technical and engineering, operations management and finance.

Working as part of established teams in roles across the business’ operations, each new recruit will complete a two or three-year placement designed to offer graduates a balance of hands-on experience and skills development in a chosen specialism, alongside a formal training programme.

Commenting on the scheme, Martin Riley, senior vice president, Tarmac, said: “Our people are what make our business, and our graduate scheme is just one of the ways in which we are developing the future leaders of our industry.  We want to give each colleague the opportunity to achieve their full potential and make their mark by delivering  outstanding service to customers to help build the country’s infrastructure together.”

Scott Connelly, a graduate from Tarmac’s 2015 intake, has progressed through a number of different roles across the business, including positions in technical, operations and commercial.

Scott is now an analyst in the company’s Strategy and Corporate Development department. Commenting on his experience with Tarmac, Scott said: “Alongside discovering what a great industry construction is, Tarmac’s graduate scheme has been fantastic at helping me to build my career by providing continuous ‘real-world’ learning opportunities, with a real focus on teamwork and management.

“For me, the most valuable experience has been with working with colleagues at all levels across the business, to help learn from their expertise. Tarmac has given me the chance to shape my own career and I’d encourage others interested in shaping the UK’s future to apply for roles.”

Tarmac’s 2018 graduate scheme is now open for applicants. For further information about the range of positions available or to submit an application, please visit
