Apprenticeship recruitment drive at Tarmac

Tarmac apprentices

Up to 50 new apprentices set to join the company as part of annual recruitment programme

COINCIDING with National Apprenticeship Week (14–18 March), Tarmac have announced the creation of up to 50 new apprenticeships for 2016, including nine higher apprentices.

Tarmac’s senior vice-president, Martin Riley, said: ‘I started as an apprentice at Tarmac, so I’m first-hand proof of the fantastic opportunities for career progression that our business offers.

‘I’m proud of the work we do to build Britain and count myself lucky to work alongside 7,000 colleagues who share this passion. I believe that we offer exciting opportunities for young people who want to make their mark and be part of a winning team.’

Twenty-one-year-old Dan Andrews works for Tarmac’s Contracting business after having successfully completed his apprenticeship with them.

‘Tarmac’s apprenticeship programme has given me more opportunities than I ever hoped,’ he commented. ‘My contribution was valued and everyone was incredibly supportive of my studies, all of which helped me to be named by my college as intermediate business services apprentice of the year – something I never thought I’d achieve.’

Tarmac’s new apprentices will be recruited from across the UK in a broad range of roles, including: technical placements; site operatives; electrical/mechanical roles; business administration; and commercial opportunities.

Each apprenticeship will last between two and four years, which includes a year of vocational training at a local college. As well as receiving expert technical training in their chosen discipline, successful candidates will benefit from competitive salaries and the opportunity for career progression as part of a global business.

The company’s apprenticeship scheme follows on from the recent launch of Tarmac’s ‘Make Your Mark’ careers campaign, which aims to help UK construction develop a talented, diverse and highly skilled workforce by inspiring people to play their part in building the country’s future.
