Job Description

Do you want to gain technical skills alongside academic studies? Are you looking for a career path with continuous training and development? Our Leadership, Education and Development (LEAD) Supervisor higher apprenticeship programme is designed to develop future supervisors in a practical environment.

Responsibilities

What will the apprentice be doing?

You  will learn something new every day supported by a team of motivated people. As a trusted member of the team, you will gain experience in all activities of the site, developing skills and achieving learning objectives so that you can support managers to operate the site effectively by the end of your programme.  Experience will be gained in all activities from health and safety procedures through to maintenance, technical, quality control and asphalt production. 

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

You will  'earn while you learn' by completing a  level 5 Higher Apprenticeship in Mineral Products Technology while working on a Hanson site.  During the three year programme you will gain experience and relevant qualifications in operational aspects of our business alongside blended learning delivered by The University of Derby from which you will receive a Diploma. You will be supported by your line manager, and assigned a mentor, as well as receiving first class training internally. 

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

Upon successful completion of your apprenticeship and the Hanson  programme you could progress to a supervisory role.  From your fourth year Hanson will also fund and enable you to top up your studies towards a full honours degree in minerals management over an additional two year period. We can offer you clear career pathways, with access to multiple opportunities across our business from unit, production  plant  or  operational managers, to transport and distribution managers, technical or commercial roles.
