Exceptional Careers with
Lagan Specialist Contracting Group
Ryan HolbrookApprentice Civil Engineer"One of the best things about working here is the freedom you’re given to learn and the responsibilities you’re given to help you develop your career quicker."
I joined as an Apprentice Engineer and studied and worked on eight week blocks at Stephenson College. My role on site involves the planning and preparation of works as well as managing subcontractors.
I find my role very interesting as no two days are the same. One of the best things about working here is the freedom you’re given to learn and the responsibilities your given to help you develop your career quicker. I’ve benefited from significant levels of support and guidance in relation to my career progression.
Joseph WoodsApprentice Civil Engineer"The best things about my job is that no day is the same, there are new challenges everyday"
My role as part of the project team is important because I’m given real responsibilities. I may only be an apprentice but I feel a valued member of the team.
A rewarding part of my job is watching the progression of a project and how quickly things change and come together.
I regularly have meetings with my line manager about my progression, what I have learned and the skills I have applied. We also discuss how I can develop further and then make plans to go forward.
There is a great sense of team spirit, and lots of support.
Sarah LowHealth, Safety, Environment & Sustainability Advisor"My career in the business has progressed from Intern to Graduate to my current role of HSEQ & Sustainability Advisor"
I graduated from the National University of Singapore and was a teacher for four years before I moved to Belfast to complete a Postgraduate Degree in Sustainable Development at Queen’s University Belfast.
I joined the HSEQ department as an Intern focussing on the implementation of a sustainable transport strategy across the business. I then worked on our Dublin Airport project for one and a half years as an environmental graduate.
In my current role I work closely with the tender and project teams across the business providing support to ensure compliance to all health, safety and environmental; legislation, best practices and company standards. My goal is to drive sustainability throughout the company by encouraging the protection of the environment while caring for colleagues and the communities we work with.
Megan DavidsonApprentice Fire and Security Engineer"There are not many females doing Fire and Security roles; I’ve been doing the job for two years now and I am loving it"
I started as an apprentice two years ago and this is my first job since leaving school. I wanted to work for H&J Martin because they have a great reputation. My grandad told me that it is known as great place to work and he was proven to be right!
I attend college every week so I get to earn and learn at the same time. Everyone is really friendly and there is a real sense of fun and support for each other. I can honestly say that I love coming in to work; I enjoy working with our clients and I feel that I definitely made the right start to my career by joining H&J Martin.
Heléna RamliApprentice Quantity Surveyor"I absolutely love working for Lagan Aviation and Infrastructure as part of the commercial team"
I have already learnt so much in my first year considering I had no background knowledge in construction industry.
Every single day is different which is why I can learn and develop so many skills at once, it not only the challenges that I’ve gained the valuable experience from but also the team I work with.
I have the opportunity to get a qualification and to get work experience at the same time. I pay no fees for getting my qualification and enjoy the employee benefits.
I find the people kind and friendly. Choosing and getting the privilege to work for Lagan Aviation and Infrastructure was one of the best decisions I have made.
James CrawfordGroup Business Development Manager"This is a family company in every aspect of how we conduct our business. I joined ten years ago as part of a site team in a quality role and I now report to the Board"
I’m responsible for the work winning across the group and ensuring the company continues to source and win new projects in all markets within which we operate. I’m usually working on projects 18-24 months before they’re due on site!
Everyone has a voice and are encouraged to actively participate in the business. There isn’t multiple layers of bureaucracy and there’s plenty of access to the owners of the business.
I received incredible support to complete a part-time Masters in Civil Engineering, now moving onto my PhD. No one will stop you from developing to the best of your ability.
There’s a real pride within the company; and a real ‘Lagan way’.
