Builders Merchant Company is continuing its ongoing support and development of young people with the appointment of two additional apprentices.

Antony and Joe have joined the Hull and Rotherham teams, and will be looking at continuing the successful history of internal development that has taken place in recent years.

Within the last three years, the company has helped four successful candidates complete their apprenticeships, three of whom have successfully attained full time roles within the BMCo family, the other leaving to continue work within the construction industry.

Duncan Thomson, Managing Director, said: ‘We are very proud of the work we are doing to try and attract people to join the merchant industry, and to be able to help these young people achieve their goals and develop a career path for themselves is something we take great pride in.

“This ongoing development is supported by the recent launch of a Graduate Programme and, as a company, plans are in place to continue to support the development of staff within the company and the industry.
