“There is real team ethos at Marley Eternit that will help you learn and grow your career.”
Gregor Lang, Area Sales Manager for the West of Scotland
I sell all roofing products and accessories. I look after the Builders Merchants that stock our products and ensure that they have the best service possible and help with their own sales.
Although I didn’t join Marley Eternit on a Graduate Scheme, I did join straight after finishing my degree – an Honours Degree in Building Surveying. I’m also a qualified BREEAM Assessor, I’m proficient in CAD and I have a wide and diversified background in construction.
Everyone within the company has been very supportive – for any help/assistance that I have required, I have been able to turn to any one of my colleagues. There is a real family culture and you know that you will be looked after. I am a sociable person and like being around people. The team that I am involved in is full of excellent people of different professional backgrounds.
Various courses have been provided, for example specification courses, and I will be put through my Institute of Roofing later this year. Right now I am happy learning systems and wider parts of the company although I am driven and keen to look at moving within the company over the next few years.
It’s great to represent such a strong brand as Marley Eternit. Also you can’t beat the banter in the construction industry, especially with the merchants and contractors!
