Lana Jay Early Careers Talent Manager at Europa Worldwide Group (1)

As National Careers Week kicks off this week, Europa Worldwide Group has ramped up its school leaver recruitment drive.

Europa’s early careers talent manager, Lana Jay (pictured), is speaking to schools across the country to discuss entry level opportunities within logistics, encouraging pupils to consider it as a career choice.

The logistics firm has launched a series of videos on choosing a career in logistics to present to schools across the country.

This latest drive follows the 2021 re-launch of Europa’s RAPID Career Development Programme, which gives school-leavers and graduates the opportunity to become part of its Europa Road sales team, which specialises in European road freight.

Currently, up to 70 of the graduates who applied are now in an interview process, with up to three graduates being placed in each of Europa Road’s 13 branches.

Applications are still open until 30 April 2021 for school leavers. All successful applicants will have a starting salary of £22,500 plus a range of employee benefits and the chance to earn extra commission.

Jay said: “The pandemic has shone a light on logistics, creating a huge opportunity for us to share more information on the career choices available within the industry with schools and universities across the UK.

“As part of our work to support the next generation of talent in logistics, we are also excited to see our 2021 RAPID programme progress.

“We have received an overwhelming response from graduates who are now going through an interview process and are continuing to promote the opportunity to school-leavers who still have until the end of April to submit their applications.”
