For career advisers
When thinking about careers in logistics, supply chain and transport many may think that the sector is simply about “trucks and sheds”, which is understandable as that is the most visible image of the sector. However, logistics, supply chain and transport management offer a variety of career pathways at all levels, from entry opportunities at age 16 or 18, to a wide range of graduate trainee roles, with progression opportunities across all sectors through senior management to board level prospects. So, far from being a sector that offers limited career opportunities, the sector is characterised by career pathways that lead directly to senior management roles for those with right skills and drive for success.
