Our business is built upon our relationships with each other, our customers and our communities and by joining our graduate programme you will support us in achieving our purpose to ‘Create a world without waste to preserve our planet’. To accomplish this we band together to create an environment where individual strengths are leveraged and different perspectives are embraced so all our employees feel that their efforts make a difference. We empower our employees to make the tough choices and accept and expect accountability.
We consistently look to stay ahead of the curve and thereby encourage our employees to think creatively, challenge existing traditions and aim to exceed our customer expectations. We care like a family but act like a community, inspiring others with passion to lead by example and with consistency. We also celebrate individual accomplishments, smile and have fun along the way.
The Graduate Development Programme has two paths: Operations or Engineering. In this structured, rotational development programme, you will be exposed to all aspects of the metals recycling industry that relate to the path you choose.
Across both paths you will have the opportunity to work on a variety of capital projects, new equipment installation/commissioning, and continuous/process improvement initiatives across our UK operations.
