Freight forwarder Davies Turner & Co Ltd has recruited another 11 youngsters for this year’s trainee programme. The scheme is now in its ninth successive year.
The new recruits will learn all aspects of Davies Turner’s business during the two-year apprenticeship and can be confident that like many of their predecessors who have passed through the programme, they will progress into management and supervisory roles.
During the company’s national trainee scheme, participants spend time in all surface freight, supply chain management and logistics divisions, as well as gaining an overview at Davies Turner Air Cargo, plus central administration, IT and the company’s accounts department.
Davies Turner Group Chairman, Philip Stephenson, said: “Apprenticeships for young people wishing to follow a career in freight forwarding are firmly back on the agenda in the UK following the recent introduction of the Apprentice Levy and Trailblazer Apprenticeships.”
