Generation Logistics Case Study: Elise Harris, Tender Management Support, CEVA


Growing up with a parent who worked in logistics, Elise felt she already had the base of knowledge needed to seek out her own career within the industry.

And while she appreciated the abundance of opportunity and a diverse range of roles to explore, she also saw logistics as a heavily male-dominated industry, with a strict 9-5 schedule, limited freedom and a long list of rules to follow.

Since joining CEVA, that perception has changed: “I am pleased to say that the industry is moving away from being male-dominated and is becoming much more flexible. In my role I am free to go into the office as I please and have the opportunity to travel abroad for business, meaning no two days at work feel the same.”

Embracing this flexibility has proved important to Elise. “There are plenty of opportunities to develop your career in any way you wish, and to participate in projects outside of your day-to-day role. There are so many opportunities to network around the business which allow me to learn what other roles involve.”

When it comes to encouraging others to take the leap into logistics, Elise doesn’t hold back: “I would say go for it! There are plenty of roles open for all experience levels and opportunities to work your way up or to enrol on a number of different courses covering a wide range of topics, ranging from short courses of just four weeks all the way to degree apprenticeships.”
