I started working for Roadstone on the 30th March 2015 after graduating as a mature student from IT Tallaght with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 2014. Prior to returning to college full time I worked in the construction industry for 12 years. While on the graduate programme I have gained an understanding of the processes in place to manufacture a large array of products. Each location I have worked in provided me with access to people who were willing to help increase my knowledge on site specific processes and company systems.

The graduate programme has allowed me to gain practical experience which dovetailed with further study in industry specific subjects through the University of Derby. As my experience grew with each rotation I felt more responsibility being entrusted to me as I worked on a variety of projects involving RMC Plants, Block Plants and currently the installation of a new Cold RAP system in my current location. These projects, while educational, also provided me with a platform to show I could make a positive contribution. Overall I found Roadstone Ltd. an environment conducive to development, with people willing to invest time in you.
