CEMEX UK takes on cohort of youngsters

Building materials manufacturer CEMEX UK has recruited a host of new trainees, 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.

Rob Doody, UK operations director, CEMEX Aggregates, said: “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.”

Three new LIDs (Leaders in Development) have also started on their career path in CEMEX. Recruited externally, Viktor Gaydor, Adam Poole, and Liam Hare have all joined the company.
