Aggregate Industries launches 2020 Apprentice Programme

  • 31 Jan 2020

Ahead of this year’s National Apprenticeship Week (3 – 7 February), Aggregate Industries is committing to investing further in the next generation, by launching its 2020 Apprenticeship Programme.

The Programme has been specifically designed to offer people the chance to earn while they learn – successful candidates are given the opportunity to gain on-the-job experience, whilst achieving professional qualifications – helping them to lay a solid foundation for a career in construction.

Each year, Aggregate offers tailored placements for the apprentices across a variety of business divisions. This includes working at some of the UK’s largest quarries, state-of-the-art asphalt plants and on some of the country’s biggest road improvement schemes – as well as areas such as finance and HR.

This year’s programme will include almost 30 nationwide positions, comprising various level two, three and four apprenticeship roles in areas such as business admin, mobile and static plant, minerals management, electrical and mechanical engineering, plant operations and sales.

With the programme now in its fifteenth year, Aggregate Industries has successfully trained over 300 graduates and apprentices in a number of these roles to date.

James Roberts, Human Resources Director at Aggregate Industries UK, commented: “With the continued need to address the ongoing skills gap faced by the sector, a key focus for us is our 2020 Apprentice Programme, which demonstrates our commitment to training and investing in the next generation of talent.

“Successful applicants will be exposed to a wide range of roles within the business and learn valuable skills.

“In recent years through our Diversity & Inclusion Strategy, we’ve also worked hard to increase the uptake of the females.

“To support this, we’ve introduced a successful female mentorship programme designed to help our female apprentices tackle the unique challenges they may face within the sector.

“We look forward to welcoming this year’s recruits and helping them reach their full potential in the future.”
