Davies Turner seeks fourth wave of apprentices

[ June 17, 2013   //   ]

Davies Turner is again seeking applicants for its National Apprenticeship programme following the high retention rate amongst candidates in the past three years of the scheme.

The new group will be based at locations up and down the UK and will undertake a 20 month long apprenticeship with the independent forwarding and logistics provider. The course includes the multimodal forwarding qualification developed and accredited by the British International Freight Association.

Davies Turner is targeting school leavers and graduates looking to make their first career move in the logistics industry, says group chairman Philip Stephenson: “All will benefit from first class, mostly in-house training and mentoring from our well qualified existing staff. This provides the perfect foundation to a career in supply chain management.”

He adds: “The next set of trainees will be joining us at an exciting time as global trade starts to recover and demand strengthens in the freight industry.”

Successful applicants will be between 18 and 24. Entry requirements for candidates will be applied flexibly: good A Levels or a useful degree, plus commercial flair and an ability to work well with colleagues and customers.
