We know many businesses are struggling to recruit people with the right skills.

Working with schools, special schools and colleges is a proven way of developing young people’s skills for the jobs of today and tomorrow.

That’s why Generation Logistics is working with The Careers & Enterprise Company on the launch of their new free self-assessment framework: Employer Standards. The framework enables businesses to understand what good careers education outreach looks like. Employers who have already completed the Employer Standards say it is helping them develop talent pipelines, close skills gaps, increase diversity and attract job and apprenticeship applicants.

This joint webinar with the Careers & Enterprise Company, there will be an opportunity to hear from employers about how it has benefited their businesses. We will show you how to use the tool and demonstrate how it will benefit your business.

Once you have signed-up for the webinar, please register to use the Employer Standards tool. 

The Careers & Enterprise Company is the national body for careers education in England, supporting schools and colleges to deliver modern, 21st century careers education. Their mission is to help every young person find their best next step.

Speaker: Clare Bottle, chief executive , the UK Warehousing Association

Clare Bottle is CEO since 2021 of the UK Warehousing Association and Vice-Chair of Women in Logistics UK, which she co-founded 15 years ago with Ruth Wareing during a career that has taken her through the chemicals, construction and food & drink sectors.  Her strategic leadership experience stems from varied board-level involvement at CILT, Transaid and chairing a school board. At UKWA, which she joined from Coca-Cola Europacific Partners, she has pursued an agenda of economic, social and environmental sustainability, as well as driving diversity and inclusion. At the 2023 CILT Awards for Excellence, Clare won the prestigious Sir Robert Lawrence Award, which recognises the lifetime achievement of an individual, for their outstanding and sustained contribution to the profession of logistics and transport. The Year of Warehousing is a high pro-file, year-long campaign to highlight the critical role of warehousing in supply chains, the sector’s major contribution to the UK economy, the essential employment of 1m people, and the key role it is set to play in embracing solar power to achieve UK’s net zero goals. It coincides with the 80th anniversary of the Association’s inception in 1944, and includes an ambitious programme of 80 site visits across the UK by Clare, whose aim is to showcase the high tech, fast-moving working environ-ments inside UK’s warehouses.

October 2024
Workshop - The logistics of constructing a new machine producing light 10 billion times brighter than the sun.BOOK NOW
18/10/2024 10:00:00 - 18/10/2024 15:00:00

 

When: 18 October 2024, 10:00 - 15:00
Where: Diamond House, Main gate. Harwell Science & Innovation Campus, Fermi Ave, Didcot, OX11 0DE, UK 
Speaker: Mick Conmy FCILT, Diamond-II Logistics Manager


Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 36 and attendees will be vetted by Diamond Light Source prior to confirmation.

The UK’s largest particle accelerator is undergoing a upgrade programme starting next year and running through to 2029, it is the largest ever investment in UK science. It will involve construction of a new, even brighter synchrotron machine, which is essentially a giant microscope, producing light 10 billion times brighter than the sun.  The light is directed, via beamlines, into laboratories where research takes place in virtually all fields of science from health to energy.


To underpin this a logistics plan is currently being designed that creates a network of local and remote storage, kitting and assembly operations from scratch. 

A project team will handle the receipt, assembly and despatch of 17,000 SKUs of largely bespoke scientific instrumentation. Much of this is both very heavy and extremely sensitive. At the same time there will be a complex and overlapping extraction and removal process. Metal recycling will also form a big part of this project. 




Diamond Light Source, along with CILT Defence Forum and Central Southern Region will run a workshop to scope the art of the possible and look for innovative movement and temporary storage solutions for this project. Defence heavy-lift and expeditionary storage experts are already engaged in this, but wider industry experts are sought to workshop ideas about the most appropriate strategy to apply to this unique endeavour. 



After an initial briefing, there will be a descriptive tour of the facility giving unprecedented access to the current particle accelerator.  The workshop will then discuss concepts and exchange ideas about how to approach the programme.  The workshop will be held in the Diamond Light Source boardroom.
