First recruit for Europa fast-track scheme

[ March 25, 2019   //   ]

Freight forwarder Europa Worldwide Group, has launched a Rapid Career Development Programme to recruit around 30 school-leavers in 2019.

The first successful candidate to secure a job at the Nottingham Europa Road branch is 18-year-old Max Holbrook (pictured, centre, with Nottingham branch manager Joe Partner). He excelled in the rigorous application process which involved a written application, final school report and predicted A-Level grades as well as a one-on-one half an hour interview.

Europa branch and sales director, Dionne Redpath (left), explained: “This is a career jumpstart programme – learning on the job from our experienced Account Managers. The four-year programme will see Max progress from junior/ trainee team members to experienced account managers. This sort of opportunity for school leavers is rare, if not unheard of in my experience, and we’re thrilled to be leading the way in piloting such an exciting and dynamic initiative.”
