What is Builders Merchant Careers?

Builders Merchant Careers is the place to learn about the merchant industry and how to build a career in this exciting sector. There is currently a shortage of young people joining the builders merchants industry. As a result we are keen to recruit young people into all areas ranging from yard work to sales and from manufacturing to marketing. In return we can offer you a first-rate career with brilliant professional progression and great rewards!

Why was Builders Merchant Careers created?

Builders Merchant Careers was set up due to the fall in numbers of young people taking up a career within the merchant industry. This website aims to address this by offering all the information required by young people making the move into a career in a builders merchant.
