Building Materials Careers

http://www.buildingmaterialscareers.comThe BMF has launched Building Materials Careers, a new, improved website to encourage more people to join the building materials sector by highlighting the wide range of careers available both in merchant and supplier businesses.

The relaunch follows policy research with members who told the BMF they wanted the Federation to help promote the widest possible range of job opportunities in the industry, fostering diversity and inclusion, helping members to recruit a workforce from a wide range of backgrounds and experience.

As part of the BMF’s bold new strategy, attracting and developing talented people in to the industry will continue to be a main strategic goal.
The website - - promotes apprenticeships, life-long learning and gives members the opportunity to manage their job advertisements free of charge using the ‘Advertise A Job’ facility. Potential apprentices and employees will then be able to easily locate these roles, using the region, sector and location search filters.

The website features merchant and supplier employees’ video profiles . Each profile explains how they came to work in the materials supply industry and what they like about their specific job. Job seekers will be inspired by the range of career opportunities available to them in the building materials industry, no matter what educational qualifications they achieved at school or university.
