Holcim Graduates


Meet Annie Mak.

Annie started the graduate program early 2016 and has so far completed rotations in the Major Projects division and in Aggregates.

“It’s really satisfying to know that we get to work on real life projects and make a real contribution to your team. I’ve been involved in a lot of major projects - the Pacific Highway upgrade, the WestConnex project and overseeing the Boambee Quarry stormwater management upgrade The graduate program has allowed me to move closer toward my goal to become a project manager.”

Meet Clare Taylor.

Clare started the graduate program early 2016, and has completed rotations in concrete production and in the pre-cast concrete products and pipes division.

“I chose the Holcim Graduate Program because I wanted to be a part of a multi-national company. I wanted to be part of a program that provided continual educational and professional development. The most valuable part of the Holcim Graduate Program for me is being able to apply the knowledge that I’ve gained at university in a real world application.”

Meet Ben Appleby.

Ben completed his two-year graduate program in late 2016 and now works full-time in Oaklands Junction, Victoria, as a quarry supervisor.

“Joining an industry-leading company with a range of business units (aggregates, concrete and precast concrete products) has exposed me to a vast range of operations and challenges to overcome. The opportunity to move throughout the business and gain as much exposure as possible is a fantastic drawcard of Holcim's Graduate Program. Both the on-the-job and structured training has been excellent and has given me the base to move forward with my career.”
