Logistics Guild launches new work placements

The Logistics Guild is organising further work placements this month, after the success of its July residential placements for soldiers with C+E licenses, at the Kendrew Barracks in Rutland.
In conjunction with DHL, the July scheme received a response of 300 candidates registering for just 100 places.
At the end of the placement, participants passed the Driver CPC, and went on to gain their Driver Qualification Card.
The August work placements will take place at the Prince William of Gloucester Barracks, in Grantham, and the Duke of Gloucester Barracks, in South Cerney.
DHL will provide classroom and practical based tuition, as well as the civilian rigs for driving practice, trainers, assessors, and the DSA upload.
The company said that ex-servicemen and women have great transferrable skills and experience for jobs within the civilian logistics industry.
Programme manager of Vocational Training at DHL, Pierre De Carteret, said: “By supplying DHL colleagues who are predominantly ex-Service leavers we can demonstrate the careers available to the military but also provide some realistic career advocacy based on personal experiences.
“It’s good news for all that Skills for Logistics and the Logistics Guild are now taking active steps to improve the talent pool available to the sector.”
