Apprenticeships with Hanson

There are some excellent Hanson Apprenticeship roles available in the company’s Leadership, Education and Development (LEAD) higher management apprenticeship programme. The Hanson Apprenticeship allows you to learn and develop supervisory skills in a hands-on environment. It offers the best of both worlds: earning while you learn to be a future supervisor or manager.

Hanson is one of the leading suppliers of heavy building materials in the UK. Its products appear in major infrastructure projects, including the construction of roads, bridges, tunnels, windfarms and commercial schemes, as well as to build homes, schools and hospitals.

The materials and products Hanson makes have been used to create some of the country’s most innovative and iconic structures. For example, The Shard, the Olympic Park, Heathrow Terminal 5, the Second Severn Crossing and the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome, Glasgow.

Hanson operates around 300 manufacturing sites and employs over 3,500 people in the UK. This includes a wide range of roles from production workers, plant operators, technicians and drivers to sales, IT, engineering and finance managers. Hanson is part of the Heidelberg Cement Group, one of the largest building materials manufacturers in the world. The Group employs around 45,000 people at 2,300 locations in 40 countries.

In the UK, Hanson has a UK headquarters in Maidenhead, as well as a customer service team in Syston, Leicestershire.

Hanson Apprenticeship Programme

Designed for enthusiastic school leavers, Hanson’s Leadership, Education and Development (LEAD) higher management apprenticeship programme allows you to learn and develop supervisory skills in a hands-on environment. During the programme, you will complete a foundation degree in mineral extractives and will work towards an honours degree in mineral extractives management.

This is a 3 year programme and candidates must be willing and able to relocate at any stage before, during and after the three year programme. In the first three years you will gain hands-on experience and relevant qualifications in operational aspects of the business while completing a distance learning foundation degree at the University of Derby.

If successful, you could become a trainee manager or plant supervisor by year 4. You will be allowed time to study during  normal working hours but must also study in your own time. A manager and a mentor will support you throughout the programme.

LEAD is an ideal launching pad for those seeking a long-term career in the mineral sector. Former LEAD programme participants are now employed across the business in a diverse range of roles from cement process engineer, to kiln production engineer to assistant quarry manager.
