Name - Scott Green
Role - Assistant Quarry Manager
Team - Operations, Quarrying and Production
Based - Mountsorrel Quarry
I am 36 years old, live in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, and am a father of one soon to be two. I am the chairman of a local football team Mountsorrel Amateurs FC, and I enjoy watching football live – my team is Leicester city. I play casually myself and I’m a goalkeeper. I am interested in local history and the history of Mountsorrel Quarry, one of the largest in Europe.
My job involves ensuring the health and safety of my team as we blast, load and haul stone to the primary crushing fixed plant. In my team there are various positions and various different pieces of mobile heavy equipment to learn to drive. I have worked at Mountsorrel quarry since leaving school 20 years ago. I started as an apprentice, and I have worked in various roles and now I am a part of the management team. Growing up in the village where my work is also based means the quarry has always been a part of my life. We used to visit as school kids and help plant trees locally as part of the site’s restoration program. I love working in the local area and being a part of the site’s long history. I enjoy working for tarmac as it’s an organisation which cares for and looks after its employees.
Working for tarmac I know I am going to be supported personally and professionally. Tarmac is caring and supportive, especially when it comes to mental health and family issues.
They are not a company that treats you like you are just a number, and you definitely feel valued. Over the years I have seen many people come into the business from other companies and be amazed by the business and what we have to offer. Tarmac also always offers training and always wants to up-skill employees and give them the correct tools and skills to do their jobs correctly and safely.
If you are motivated and want to be a part of a team, then tarmac is a great company to work for as the business offers a wide variety of roles. Just because you work in the quarry, it doesn’t mean you can’t then move roles to an office position. I’ve seen over the years employees start in our ‘hub’ quarry office and then move to the operational setting and vice versa. The opportunities are endless.
