Learning and development is an important part of our business, helping us ensure our workforce are skilled, achieve their full potential, and progress throughout the business during their career.


Annually we devote around 25,000 days on development activities for our colleagues; with courses covering a range of topics including professional, functional and personal growth.


We want to support all our colleagues to reach their potential. In order to give you the very best start in your new career with us you will have an induction to help get you up to speed with our business, and to understand how we fit into the wider LafargeHolcim family so you can find your feet as quickly as possible. During your first few months, you will have tailored training programmes suitable for your position to give you the support you need to succeed in your role.

Personal development

You’ll also have the opportunity to create a Personal Development Plan with your manager; this will be tailored to meet your abilities and aspirations and to help you progress through the company at an achievable pace. Once this has been identified, you will get the development and support you need to achieve your agreed aims and objectives.

Professional qualifications

In many of our roles there could be an opportunity for us to support you with funding or study leave for professional qualifications. There may be a structured programme in place in some departments whilst other departments may be able to consider ad-hoc requests if the course is related to your role. We always try to encourage our colleagues to develop their careers so reasonable requests will always be considered.
