Tell us a little about your own career path

I’m originally from Todmorden, then we moved to Burnley when I was ten. So I’m from this part of the world. After school I became an apprentice with the North Lancs Training Group. They asked me what I liked doing, and they arranged for me to have an interview here at CMAC.

I’ve now been here for 13 years. I’ve had many different roles. I’ve experienced almost every role here from Operations to Pre-planning, Accounts, and now senior management.

What different careers can be achieved for young people in your company?

We’ve got a variety available. In the past its been primarily business administration, we’ve also got more finance-based apprentices.

There are many different opportunities with CMAC. Apprentices can get experience of all different parts of the company. There is also potential with the IT department because we’ve got inhouse developers. Cyber security is a hot topic in at the moment.

Would you recommend working for CMAC?

Absolutely. I would completely recommend working for CMAC. There is an abundance of opportunities and the culture here is great.

There’s a consensus that we all get involved. If one department succeeds, we all succeed. It’s an open and honest company and the directors are very approachable.

It’s a great company to work for from a cultural perspective and a great Amazing Accrington business.
