About Us

Tarmac – So Much More

We’re the largest construction materials company in the UK, owned by the global brand CRH. There’s so much more to us than meets the eye – with a variety of roles that will suit your lifestyle. We have opportunities based outdoors on site, in one of our offices or you can even find yourself a role that is a mix of both!

Joining Tarmac will give you a chance to build a successful career for yourself, shape the world we live in and enjoy yourself in work. We’re proud of the connections we have with our local communities as we work to build a more sustainable future for our country, and we want you to feel that pride when you join us.

The bigger we think today, the better we can make tomorrow.

You’ll link into a new social network and build a work family. At Tarmac, interest, ambition and collaboration lead to new challenges, opportunities and a sense of pride in a job well done.

So much more than roads. Tarmac, building our future.

Our approach to Early Careers

We understand and appreciate how critical the early careers population is to our business and industry, which is why we’ll empower you from day one. From the moment you join Tarmac you work, earn, learn and grow.

Our commitment is to support you all the way through your chosen entry programme – not just with formal training and qualifications, but also with a culture and environment where you feel welcomed and excited about coming to work and making a difference.

Our Apprenticeships



Keep Tarmac running and improving behind the scenes in one of our offices. You’ll often hear these referred to as ‘corporate functions’. From finance and marketing, to IT, HR and procurement, you’ll help Tarmac run as efficiently as possible and help us move forward as a business. There are jobs and so much more on offer here.



Operational roles are the heartbeat of Tarmac, producing and providing materials to build a more sustainable future. From intermediate apprenticeships including technicians, road surfacing and highways maintenance, to engineering and quarry management, take pride in helping us build the UK. Roads, buildings, hospitals and offices – we do it all.



We need to keep that link between the operational business and corporate functions. Join us in commercial, technical and a variety of different jobs to experience both office and site-based work.
