Think Logistics, the organisation set up by Abbey Logistics CEO Steve Granite to attract young people into logistics, has launched a series of videos to highlight the variety of career opportunities available across the sector.

The short films have been financed by the DfT and include student-focused interviews and several ‘day in the life’ stories demonstrating what working in the sector is like. The clips are free for all companies to use on their web sites and social media channels as part of their efforts to recruit young people at all levels.

Granite said: “This is an opportunity for companies of all sizes to use these films free of charge to raise awareness of the sector and directly benefit from increasing the size of their talent pool for opportunities in their businesses.

“Having been involved in Think Logistics from the start, I have seen countless examples of the benefits young people can bring to an organisation and we hope these videos will enable companies to easily demonstrate what opportunities are available and how the reality of working in logistics is very different from what people may think.

“I’d like to thank the Department for Transport for the funding provided to produce these films, on behalf of the logistics sector.”

The films were developed by the Think Logistics working party set up in 2017 and which included Abbey Logistics, CILT, FTA, NOVUS and Career Ready, a UK-wide employability charity that works with schools and colleges.

A key element of Think Logistics are workshops delivered in schools and colleges by logistics volunteers as well as mentoring and work placements designed to secure future talent for the industry.

The films can be downloaded for offline use.
