Our people will always be at the heart of our business and key to ushering it into a sustainable future. We recognize the positive contribution of our colleagues and teams and reward based on merit, not circumstance.
Together we connect in a workplace that is diverse, inclusive and respectful – with health, safety and wellbeing being central to everything we do. It is a working environment where all ideas count and everyone can feel empowered to thrive.
We’re at the front line of the construction and infrastructure industries, producing and supplying an array of construction materials. We’re home to everything from aggregates, asphalt, ready-mixed concrete and precast concrete products, and we also produce, import and supply construction materials, export aggregates and offer national road surfacing and contracting services. We’re also a proud member of LafargeHolcim; the leading global building materials and solutions company with around 90,000 employees in over 80 countries.
The scope for career progression and diversification is vast. As a multi-faceted, multi-discipline business with over 270 sites and around 3,900 dedicated employees in the UK, we recruit talented people across a broad spectrum of roles, including:
We are proud to base our business on our values of equality, flexibility and mutual respect. We foster an environment where everyone can forge their own path by offering training, support and flexibility to create balance inside and outside of work. We encourage our people to discuss their requirements with their line manager, who will do what’s possible to accommodate them.
We know that balancing work and home life is challenging. We’re proud to give new parents the time off they need to adjust to their new responsibilities (18 weeks full pay for new mums, alongside a generous return to work bonus and 2 weeks fully paid paternity leave for Dads).
We work hard to support flexible working where it’s possible, for example offering the option of working from alternative sites if they are more convenient and it works with the job. Ultimately, we will do what we can to make sure you can make the school run, visit an elderly relative in hospital or attend a parents evening at school.
“Covering a national role can be very demanding with small children. Whilst my role does not come with set hours it does allow me the flexibility to book my travel around when is best for me – for example, staying away overnight before an early meeting to ensure I get home in time to be with my children the next day.
“With greater flexibility more women are taking up management positions than ever before. I did my dissertation on inequality in the workplace and it’s clear to see how the attitude towards women in our industry is shifting. It is great to see that women are being welcomed into the industry and aspiring to more senior roles..
“I applied for my role in the Ready Mixed Concrete division here while pregnant – and was offered the role knowing that I would be going on maternity leave soon after. This business recognized and hired me based on my ability to do a great job and not my personal circumstances. That really counts for a lot.”
