Schenker Limited, the UK arm of the global logistics services provider DB Schenker, has eight brand new opportunities for young people via its UK National Apprenticeship Programme to start a career within the logistics industry
This will be the third year of the programme, which also received industry recognition in January when DB Schenker won the BIFA freight service award for Staff Development.
The new group of eight will be based in a variety of locations up and down the UK and will undertake a 30 month long apprenticeship with the leading global logistics provider.
They are required to complete two frameworks as part of the programme and when successfully passed, they will receive an NVQ Level 2 in Business administration and an NVQ Level 3 in Customer Service. Each apprentice will be assigned a "buddy" within the organisation to oversee their workplace wellbeing. The buddy will also act as their own point of contact within the company, and will be the person they can go to for advice, coaching or support.
While gaining experience in their local branch, they will also attend internal DB Schenker training courses, visit other branches, working across different disciplines and undertake a business improvement project. Each apprentice is expected to identify an area of the business that can be improved and to make suggestions about how this can be achieved.
The course which has the full backing of our senior management, is also crucial to the long term development of our company says Managing Director, Helgi Ingolfsson: “Getting young people into logistics is vital, they are the future of the company and that is why I wholeheartedly support our apprentice programme.”
Schenker Limited is part of the global DB Schenker network. With 18 locations and over 850 employees, the company provides the complete range of land operations, international air and ocean freight forwarding and all related integrated logistics services and global supply chain management.
