Breedon launches 2023 apprenticeship programme

New programme will see 70 apprentices join the Group in September 2023

Breedon Group plc (Breedon or the Group), a leading vertically-integrated construction materials group in Great Britain and Ireland, today announces the launch of its 2023 apprenticeship programme that will see 70 new apprentices join the Group in September this year.

Applications for the 2023 intake are now open and this year’s apprentices are invited to apply for roles across many different disciplines at various sites across England, Scotland and Wales, including:

• Mechanical and Electrical Maintenance Technicians
• Lab technicians
• HGV Service and Maintenance Technician
• Quantity Surveyors
• Surfacing Operatives
• Plant Maintenance
• Customer Services
• Machinery Operatives
• Operations Management
• Project Engineers

Those interested in building their future at Breedon need no prior experience or qualifications if they are applying for a Level 2, Intermediate Apprenticeship. However, applicants looking to apply for Levels 3 or higher will need specific qualifications:

• Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeships require 5 GCSEs
• Levels 4, 5, 6 or Higher/Degree Apprenticeships require A levels or a BTEC

Jorden, a Mobile Plant Operative based in Longwater, East Anglia, said: “I didn’t need any previous experience within the field and have been given all the help and support that I need to do well within my role. I had reached the age where I no longer wanted just a job but a career, and I really feel that I have found that within Breedon. Now I am working in this industry, I can’t imagine wanting to do anything else.”

Successful applicants will be paid from day one and will have the opportunity to build a career, having gained industry experience at the largest independent construction materials group in the UK.

Those interested in applying for the programme should visit our website to apply.

The application window will be open for one month, meaning all applications must be submitted by 5 May 2023. A full timeline for the application process and onboarding programme for the successful applicants can be found on Breedon’s website here.

Caroline Roberts, Group People Director at Breedon commented: “Breedon is a wonderful place to build a career, and this year’s programme will see our new class of apprentices begin varied and dynamic careers at sites across England, Scotland and Wales.

“We are always looking for talented, ambitious young people to join our team and make Breedon an even greater place to work. .Our purpose is to make a material difference to the lives of all of our colleagues, as well as to our customers and local communities. That’s why I am delighted to be launching this year’s apprenticeship programme.”
