Discover Logistics Careers

OPPORTUNITIES FOR EMPLOYEES

 

Logistics UK is taking action to highlight careers available across the sector, including job vacancies and training schemes, with the launch of a new nationwide initiative for its members.  The “Discover Logistics Careers” weekend, running from 29 October to 1 November 2021, will encourage local outreach for logistics businesses nationwide and show potential employees the range of job opportunities which currently exist across the sector.

During the weekend, we are asking members to open their doors and invite local people into their businesses to talk about the jobs they offer, including the skills needed, the routes to employment, the vacancies they currently have, to offer ‘taster’ sessions of the sorts of things that are involved, to sign people up for work experience or to take job applications.

A searchable nationwide register of events will then be publicised for members of the public to attend, and there will be downloadable materials for members to use to raise awareness of the activities taking place.  DWP has also committed its support to the weekend-long activity and will be publicising the events throughout its network of careers advisers and job centres to encourage attendance.

We are delighted to say we have secured the support of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) who will be highlighting the events to all their visitors, and asking their careers coaches and other employment advisers to discuss the event and encourage consumer participation in it over the next few weeks. We are also on the verge of signing a major media partnership for the event, which will give us significant national coverage that will certainly drive footfall, so please have a think about what sort of event you are able to offer and sign up today.
