What is the Rapid Career Development Programme?
This four-year programme offers school leavers the chance of a career in logistics and the opportunity to start earning whilst learning. At the end of the programme, experienced Account Managers can earn upwards of £40,000 per year, with a company car and other benefits
Why a career in logistics?
Think about the clothes you wear, the car you drive, the stuff you use every day – it all needs transporting from somewhere! This is what Europa does – it’s very likely that you’re wearing something right now that has travelled across Europe on one of our trucks. Our services are vital – we’re the glue that joins every bit of the supply chain together. Our Europa Road team manages freight shipped daily to and from the UK and Europe. With a branch team of 140 we have offices across the country dedicated to a top-notch experience for our 5,000 customers, meaning goods arrive on time at the best possible price.
How long does it take?
Four years in total. It will start with training to learn about the world of logistics and account management. You will start as a Sales Operator, learning the basics of customer care and understanding sales techniques as well as getting hands-on account management training.
