A new solution for today's driver shortage
From drivers and distributers, to supply chain managers and warehouse operatives - it's the sector that keeps the country moving. According to the FTA, the logistics sector employs a total of 2.35 million people in the UK, accounting for nearly 8% of the UK workforce. With a driver shortage of over 50,000 alongside increasing demand through online consumer spend, better service expectations and quicker response times, this number is only set to increase. Plus the ageing work population, with the average age
of a HGV Driver at almost 48 and as little as 2% under 25, there’s just not enough people coming into the industry. Companies must ensure they have the best talent on board to succeed and in this industry, the ongoing talent shortage really is the biggest challenge.
Take a look at the video below to see how Manpower is facing this challenge head on, by investing in people's skills and helping organisation's stay one step ahead of their competitors.
By exclusively partnering with a leading training provider, we have created the Manpower Driver Academy. Once a candidate has begun their training, Manpower will support them through the process offering industry specific advice and information on jobs, local pay rates, and guidance on entering the logistics industry. As well as providing them with placement services once fully qualified.
