At Forterra, we nurture our employees towards achieving their career goals, providing them with an innovative and supportive environment to develop their skills alongside industry professionals. If you’re a creative thinker striving towards an exciting career in commercial or logistics please apply.

The role

Join us for 12 months and you’ll have the chance to develop valuable skills and expertise as part of our commercial & logistics team. 

On our commercial & logistics scheme, you’ll be hands on at the forefront of our business working with our customers, suppliers and operational teams. You’ll start by gaining exposure to our sales processes, learning about products and services, right through to logistics and invoicing. 

You will spend time helping us drive sales by building strong relationships on dedicated customer accounts and by successfully handling all kinds of queries from within our customer service centre.  Other areas you will gain exposure include reporting and data analysis to drive and optimise efficiencies within logistics.

To ensure you get up to speed as quickly as possible, the internship kicks off with a full induction and we’ll provide you with technical training on our products and services on an ongoing basis. You’ll also learn by shadowing experts on the job and by taking part in various strategic projects alongside an experienced mentor. 

Throughout the year, we will check in regularly on your progress to make sure you’re getting as much out of the experience as possible. 

We hope at the end you will finish the scheme with a brilliant base knowledge of how the business works together, which will help you jump start your career.  Perform impressively and there may well be an opportunity for you to fast-track onto our graduate scheme at the end of your internship.
