Operating in a wide range of commercial and industrial sectors, including grocery, food service and gas, Gist works in partnership with customers such as Starbucks, EAT, Marks and Spencer, Tesco, Morrisons and 2 Sisters Food Group We recognise that the key to our success is our people. For us to deliver the best service to our customers, maintain a strong reputation and continue to grow, we need to recruit and develop the right people.
Transport Operations Apprenticeship
You will join the scheme as a vital member of the transport team and learn the business from the very heart of the operation. You will be trained on all systems and processes and become an integral part of the success of the distribution centre. On a typical day, you will have the opportunity to build relationships with our drivers, understand the transport function and play a key role in allocating routes to ensure products are delivered in a timely and effective manner.
If successful in your first year, your second year on this scheme will begin to explore how we develop you into a Team Manager in the operation. We will coach you towards managing a team, assessing your own leadership styles and helping you enhance your skills. We will give you exposure to HR and employee relations, alongside hands-on team management.
No two days are ever the same. The environment is fast-paced and dynamic but not your normal 9–5. You will be, at times, required to work different shift patterns and weekends in order to receive a fully rounded picture of our operation and ensure that we continue to deliver excellence to our customers.
Qualification you'll gain
This apprenticeship scheme will give you an Intermediate qualification in Warehouse and Supply Chain Operations. After completing this qualification, you have the opportunity to enrol on the Level 3 Team Leading apprenticeship and will gain an Advanced qualification in Team Leading. With this qualification you are able to register as an Associate member with the Chartered Management Institute to support your career development.
You will earn while you learn and gain hands-on experience in logistics operations and, in time, management expertise, coaching and development to help you to become a manager within our business in the future.
