How would we sum it up?
From sourcing business, right through designing their solutions, this is a fantastic opportunity for a graduate with knowledge of engineering or architecture to work for a rapidly growing cladding supply company. By understanding LMC’s products and how it plays a part in the building industry, you will be able to promote the products to potential clients around the country. The business is offering huge benefits, including a company car, mobile and laptop to facilitate UK travel with ongoing support from the Sheffield-based team. The role revolves around building relationships with clients and helping them choose the right products for their needs. You will have the responsibility of taking on new clients and managing their projects through to completion by yourself - no micromanaging! If you love travelling, meeting and engaging with new people, and are keen to experience project management, then this is the perfect role for you to kickstart your career and build your network.

What’s the business all about?
LMC Products Ltd is an exterior cladding supplier, supplying lightweight stone honeycomb panels to residential and commercial building sectors. The business is thriving after working with the Berkeley and Murphy groups, two of the largest developers in the country, and they are now looking to grow the business with new and existing projects. With only three team members currently, you will be part of a small, close-knit office, getting involved with current projects such as the Berkeley group, who are housing survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire. LMC Products pride themselves on honest service, believing it’s not about the quickest solution, but the best quality. To find out more visit http://lmcfacades.co.uk/
