School Leavers Construction Jobs


Are you looking for a career and not just a job?

Are you better suited to manual labour as opposed to sitting behind a desk?

Do you prefer working outdoors as opposed to indoors?

DDS is running a very focused recruitment drive targeted at young people of Sixth Form and College age who may be interested in a career within the demolition industry. We are inviting applicants for the site-based position of Labourer who have a clear hunger for progression to positions such as Machine Driver, Site Supervisor, Project Manager, Contracts Manager and beyond.

A bit about us….

DDS Group has been operating for 42 years as a family-run business. We are based in Thanet and are locally recognised as a great employer.

We grow and nurture talent with many of our colleagues starting off at the bottom of the ladder only to have earned and worked their way up.

This is even the case for Managing Director. He joined the company at 18 starting out on site as a labourer assisting the other demolition operatives. He learnt his trade from the ground up and many others within DDS have done the same over the years, in fact there are currently 16 colleagues that have effectively started at the bottom and been promoted.

DDS now needs to look for the next generation. Our business and industry relies on the expertise and skill of our site teams to execute and deliver a safe and professional demolition.

This is your opportunity to learn a very specialist trade. As with plumbers, electricians and the like, the world will always need construction workers – why not create a niche for yourself within the specialist demolition industry? The demolition industry is not yet flooded with young talent – the opportunity for you is rife – grab it with both hands!

We offer full training to the successful applicants – if you want a career in construction, we want you.
