Seville: Great to see investment in young talent
BUILDING materials and construction firm Tarmac has been made an IChemE Bronze Corporate Partner.
Bronze Corporate Partnership from IChemE recognises a company’s efforts and commitment to the process industries. As a Bronze partner, Tarmac has an IChemE Accredited Company Training Scheme (ACTS) for its graduates and pays IChemE membership fees for eligible employees.
Tarmac employs 7,000 people across the UK across 400 sites. IChemE past president Jonathan Seville presented Tarmac managing director of cement and lime Mike Eberlin with the Bronze Corporate Partnership certificate at a small ceremony at Tarmac’s Tunstead site in Derbyshire, UK. The Tunstead site employs 400 people and is the largest supplier of lime and lime-based products in the UK.
“What struck me most during IChemE’s visit was that Tarmac provides its employees with a real breadth of opportunities to become better engineers. Project management is a key focus of its ACTS delivery, an essential skill for any chemical engineer who wants to progress to a senior role. It’s really great to see such an investment in young talent,” said Seville.
Eberlin said that he is “delighted” with the recognition and that it is a “fantastic opportunity” to take forward the company’s practice of providing staff training and development.
Tarmac joins 16 other Bronze Corporate Partners including Jacobs Douwe Egberts, Aker Solutions, DNV GL and PM Group.
