  • 5. Click to edit Master text styles ____ __ ____ _____ ____ ______ Second level _____ _____ Third level ____ _____ Fourth level _____ _____ Fifth level ____ _____ Logistics needs to attract new people into the sector. Logistics has real job opportunities. However, many wouldn’t consider logistics as a career of choice and ‘fall’ into the sector. As such, many employers struggle to fill job vacancies. Skills for Logistics has developed a range of products and professional services to raise the profile and awareness of logistics. Our goal? To attract, engage and connect talent with employers and help get people into a worthwhile and long-term career of choice.

Click to edit Master text styles ____ __ ____ _____ ____ ______ Second level _____ _____ Third level ____ _____ Fourth level _____ _____ Fifth level ____ _____ Employers often tell us that people have qualifications but are poorly prepared, lack certain skills and competencies and are not ‘work ready’. Being ‘work ready’ gives people a serious advantage in securing employment. With productivity increasingly being driven by skills, our team deliver development solutions such as pre-employment training, to ensure people have the ‘work ready’ skills to get a job. Once employed, Skills for Logistics ensures employees can access the advice, skills and training needed to progress in their career.

As well as developing the Logistics Guild Credit Union, Skills for Logistics has successfully supported and secured employer match-funding for a range of innovative skills-based projects, demonstrating a real conviction of employers and professional partners to support the sector.

At the same time, service leavers were able to realise that skills acquired in the Services are actually in huge demand with employers and that long-term career opportunities and real jobs exist in the Logistics Sector. Attracting talent to the sector through the MWPS was hugely successful. Skills for Logistics was able to develop a world-class relationship with the Armed Forces during programme delivery. Importantly, 1,000 service leavers gained invaluable ‘on-the-job’ experience, with over 250 candidates gaining job offers resulting from their work placement. .

This meant that I could maximise my benefit from the placement while also demonstrating the transferable military skills that civilian employers highly value”
