A new cohort of trainees has started at CEMEX UK, bringing young people and new talent into the construction and building materials industry.
Six trainee quarry managers, three external candidates with engineering degrees and three internal with relevant qualifications from within CEMEX, have completed their business familiarisation programme and are about to start a six week rotation programme visiting a key aggregate site each week.
Following the rotation the trainees will be based within a business region and will gain the relevant competencies for the quarrying industry.
“This is the first year we have recruited a group of trainees, in the past it has been on an ad hoc basis as the business required additional people. As an aging industry we need the knowledge and energy of new talent, bringing their ideas and enthusiasm to the job. I am delighted to welcome them to CEMEX”, says Rob Doody, UK Operations Director, CEMEX Aggregates.
Recruited externally, Viktor Gaydov, Adam Poole, and Liam Hare were all keen to join a global business which offered a diverse development plan across the company.
Traditionally graduate schemes offer placement within one part of a business. In contrast under the CEMEX scheme, the three LIDs will experience all parts of the business giving them a well rounded “education” in the world of CEMEX and the opportunity to see which business area they are most interested in.
