Davies Turner & Co has recruited another 11 people for this year’s trainee programme.  

The new recruits to the logistics company will learn all aspects of Davies Turner’s business during the two-year apprenticeship.

Like their predecessors who have passed through the programme, now in its ninth year, they will have the opportunity to progress into management and supervisory roles.

Participants spend time in all surface freight, supply chain management and logistics divisions. They will also gain 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.

However, having launched our own apprenticeship scheme nine years ago, you could say that we have been ahead of the curve on this important issue.”

“Davies Turner’s trainee scheme is clearly thriving and we have an excellent retention rate at the end of each course due to our mentoring system and determination to expose trainees to interesting and responsible career opportunities at the end of the apprenticeship,” he said.
