Delivering the next generation of supply chain expertise

“Once you’ve got your foot in the door, so many career opportunities open up and it’s great hands-on experience.” Those are the words of first year International Freight and Logistics Apprentice, Jake Rushton, who joined us last October and has been learning all about customs procedures and hazardous cargo.

At Warrant Group we’re really proud to support young people starting their careers through the apprenticeship route – it mirrors my own beginnings as a YTS trainee back in 1986. Fast-forward 23 years and I became Managing Director and owner of Warrant Group, a role which continues to be rewarding and challenging.

Learning in the workplace is an excellent way to get a practical feel for a business, and in our sector, it gives individuals the opportunity to build up a detailed knowledge and understanding of the sector’s complex requirements.

At the moment, we have three apprentices working alongside our teams learning about international trade and logistics. One of our past apprentices has moved into a management role while another has relocated from operations to finance and is now studying for professional qualifications through the Association of Accounting Technicians.

As well as supporting apprentices, we’re also helping all members of staff make the most of professional development opportunities and fulfill their potential.

As a business Warrant Group has built up a reputation for delivering a ‘solutions based approach’ combining expertise and competitive pricing with a strong customer-focused approach. This ethos is an essential part of the business and it’s great to share this knowledge and passion.

With more than 55 members of staff at Warrant Group from a wide range of disciplines and backgrounds, we have some fantastic role models and work hard to create an environment where ideas and experiences can be exchanged. Many of our senior team are members of leading industry organisations with experience of working on complex, country-to-country supply chain combinations.

Sharing this expertise, providing support for professional development and ultimately inspiring the next generation to be the innovators of the future is a great way to reward individuals and support the community around us.

And, with the Government’s drive to encourage UK businesses to explore new markets overseas, there has never been a better time to begin an apprenticeship in logistics and supply chain management.

Ian Jones is the Managing Director of Warrant Group which is one of the largest privately owned supply chain management companies in the UK.
