Russell Group are proud to be sponsors of the industry’s new awareness and recruitment campaign, Generation Logistics, which is being co-ordinated by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) and Logistics UK, in partnership with the Department for Transport.
As Phil Roe, President of Logistics UK explains, the campaign aims to attract, identify and develop a new and diverse generation of talent to fill vacancies industry-wide and future-proof the sector:
“Generation Logistics will provide our industry with the capability to attract and retain the skilled and ambitious workforce which it needs as our role in society continues to flourish,” he explains. “After the recognition of our workforce as key workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is critical that we protect and enhance our talent pool to keep our sector developing and thriving to support all sectors of the economy; Generation Logistics will give us the opportunity to do just that, by attracting and retaining the very best talent from across the country.”
Launching in July 2022, the Generation Logistics portal will offer careers advice and guidance, as well as displaying jobs and news from across the logistics industry, raising awareness of the industry and showcasing the broad range of roles logistics has to offer.
Alan Poulton, Russell Group’s CEO states, “In what is a very challenging time for the Logistics industry, it is vitally important that our sector continues to play a key supporting role in the UK’s economic growth. Russell is delighted to sponsor the Generation Logistics Programme, bringing industry leading companies together to work collaboratively in order to showcase the wide variety of opportunities within the supply chain.
At Russell, our people are at the heart of our business and play a vital role in achieving our vision.
