School leavers on fast track to logistics leadership

02 October 2019

Logistics operator Europa Worldwide has inducted the latest batch of school leavers onto its RAPID Career Development Programme.

Piloted last year, the programme has been designed for school leavers aged 18-21 as a fast-track route into management.

The initiative is the brainchild of Europa’s Managing Director Andrew Baxter who started work straight from school so is a passionate advocate of learning on the job.

It is designed to meet the needs of school leavers who have decided university is not the route for them as well as addressing the challenge of recruitment in the logistics sector.

Initially led by Sales Director, Dionne Redpath and Group Recruitment & Talent Manager, Vanita Dass-Puri, the search for the countries brightest and most passionate students interested in a career in logistics began in Spring 2019 and included visits to over 40 schools and events around the country, meeting over 700 interested students.
