Builders Merchant Company (BMC) has announced the launch of its Graduate Commercial Trainee Programme, which gives young people the chance to develop a career in the builders merchants industry.
The programme will be tailored to offer talented young people the opportunity to develop skills in two main areas, Sales and Operations, allowing each person to specialise and develop their own area of expertise.
At the end of the programme it is hoped that the candidates will be in a position to develop through the Branch Management Structure, or alternatively become a successful Sales Manager within the company.
BMC are said to have already embarked upon the recruitment process, with new commercial trainee, Adis Talic, joining the team as a graduate of Sheffield Hallam University.
When asked about the opportunity, Adis said: “I am proud to be a part of the new team being developed by the Builders Merchant Company and am incredibly enthusiastic for the opportunities that lay ahead of me. Builders Merchant Company is a company with a positive outlook and a forward thinking group of individuals at the helm steering the company in the right direction allowing for growth, new ideas and always looking to improve, part of which is a reason for why I am particularly eager to join the business.”
Duncan Thomson, Managing Director of Builders Merchant Company, added: “It is a fantastic opportunity for young people to establish themselves within the merchant industry, and to develop a career suited to their own personal skill set.
“Being able to offer a training programme like this offers us the opportunity to secure talented youngsters who will help contribute to the growth strategy within the company, offering fresh new ideas which we may not have considered previously. It is exciting times for the company and we are delighted to have Adis on board.”
