Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

About Us... header image

CRH is a diversified building materials group which manufactures and distributes building material products from the fundamentals of heavy materials and elements to construct the frame, through value-added exterior products that complete the building envelope, to distribution channels which service construction fit-out and renewal.

CRH plc was formed through a merger in 1970 of two leading Irish public companies, Cement Limited (established in 1936) and Roadstone, Limited (1949). The newly-formed group was the sole producer of cement and the principal producer of aggregates, concrete products and asphalt in Ireland.

CRH employs approximately 76,000 people at 3,600 operating locations in 35 countries. Headquartered in Belgard Castle in Dublin, CRH focuses on three closely related core businesses:

  • Primary materials (cement, aggregates, asphalt, etc)
  • Value-added building products (bricks, roof tiles, insulation, etc)
  • Specialist building materials distribution.

The Group’s broad geographic, sectoral and product balance together with its vigorous and consistent development strategy has delivered unbroken profit growth since 1992.
