Covid-19 has affected most if not all our lives over the last two/three years with many young people having their educations disrupted. With added pressures added to young individuals to pass exams with little education due to schools and college closures left many with anxieties about entering the workforce.
As a Young Enterprise Business Backer, we hope to address this emerging issue and help to reassure the youth of the future about work and the amazing opportunities available to them.
Working within an industry that is currently trying to attract new talent, we hope that being a Young Enterprise Business Backer, will help us promote the industry of Supply Chain and Logistics.
Logistics is an exciting, dynamic industry – a global business with numerous opportunities for career growth. The industry is a fast-moving, 24/7 operation that’s anything but 9-5. It’s important to engage and build relationships with colleges and universities with a real need to educate and explain exactly what logistics is, how important it is to the economy and vital to businesses.
We plan to emphasise that the industry needs talented people to become our future leaders, and that a global career is possible in an industry that’s by nature multi-national.
By introducing the idea of a career in logistics before students leave school or university, we have more of a chance of helping to grow the logistics pool of talent for the future.
We look forward to our relationship with Young Enterprise.
