Discover Logistics Careers campaign signs media partnership with the Sun on Sunday
Following the recent launch of its Discover Logistics Careers campaign, Logistics UK is delighted to announce a partnership with the Sun on Sunday newspaper, to begin on 1 October 2021.
The campaign will focus on one weekend running from 29 October to 1 November 2021, when Logistics UK members will be asked to open their doors and invite local people into their business to talk about the opportunities they can offer, offer ‘taster sessions, sign people up for work experience and accept job applications.
One Logistics UK member that can clearly see the benefit of signing up for the campaign is the discount grocer chain Aldi, which will be organising a tour of its regional distribution centre in Atherstone in Warwickshire over the weekend.
Luke Peech, Managing Director of National Supply Chain Management and Services at Aldi UK, said: “As we continue to grow, we’re looking for ambitious and hard-working individuals to join our team at our distribution centres across the country.
“Our amazing colleagues are central to everything we do at Aldi and remain one of the key factors in our success. We’re looking forward to welcoming potential new recruits to the team.”
Alex Veitch, General Manager – Public Policy, Logistics UK, said: “With a weekly readership figure of more than four million, the Sun on Sunday can help spread the word about the great range of career opportunities available across the logistics sector. From HGV drivers and mechanics to port and air freight management roles, the logistics sector offers something for everyone.”
