Students find out about the logistics sector

The day was a success, with over 200 people coming to listen and people from across the industry presenting their skills. It’s clear that there is still some work to do in making careers in logistics an attractive option for young people, but this first step has been taken! We are looking forward to continuing our efforts of promoting the industry as a career choice by doing more events like this one. If you want your company involved next time or have any suggestions on how we can improve the event please let us know!

Reach-Out Programs

Too many people in the industry complain about the lack of young talent” says Lee Griffith, MD of participating Member NNR Global Logistics UK. And he's right - there is a serious shortage coming down the pipe and it will only get worse as more businesses rely on logistics to stay competitive. But don't worry! There are things you can do now to make sure your business has enough qualified employees for tomorrow. Reach out with one hand by partnering with schools, colleges, or universities whose curriculum includes logistics education courses

In the end, it’s up to us as individuals and companies to take responsibility for building a better future. The reach-out programs from NNR Global Logistics are just one way that we can all do our part in preparing students for their careers in logistics by providing them with valuable industry experience at an early age.

The government is stepping in to help with the labour shortage by incentivizing companies with apprenticeships. Businesses will be paid up to £3,000 for taking on 16-24 year olds and they’ll only receive a bonus if they employ 25+. These incentives were brought about in 2020 when it became clear that there was an impending skills gap in skilled workers
