Generation Logistics case study: Sunnah Habib, Graduate Scheme, Wincanton


Sunnah came into logistics without really knowing what to expect; she just hoped that the experience would be useful and she could build her confidence and capabilities along the way.

“My first impression of Wincanton was that everyone in the room is treated equally,” she explains. “It’s easy to feel intimidated when senior leaders are in the room. But here it’s as easy to speak to the CEO as it is your line manager.” 

The graduate scheme has seen Sunnah travel across the country, fulfilling her placement and getting a comprehensive introduction to the sector. 

“I worked on an AGV project in Doncaster – which was a great experience for someone who hadn’t worked with robots before,” she continues. 

“My first placement was in Bristol as a transport manager for Howdens. Then I went to Derby as a transport planner for Morrisons. Now I’m in the customer fulfilment centre for Waitrose in Greenford.” 

Sunnah is revelling in the variety of the scheme and sees it as a potential positive for lots of other young people like her. 

“My advice would be to not limit yourself when it comes to choosing placements,” she says. “There will be many options to decide from, but it’s good to go for roles that you would probably never go for!”
