As part of its RAPID Career Development Programme, leading logistics firm Europa Worldwide Group is extending opportunities for graduates and school-leavers by announcing a second intake of applications this year.
More about Europa’s RAPID programme
It follows the 2021 re-launch of the programme, which gives candidates the chance to become part of its Europa Road sales team and become a Trainee Road Account Manager.
This year, Europa has already taken on 13 successful candidates, who started in April 2021 working across Europa Road’s 13 branches.
Now, following its success and at a crucial decision making time for gradates, Europa has announced a second intake.
The process of video screening and first and second stage interviews will begin from June with successful applicants starting to work within the business from September 2021.
Comment from Europa’s Early Career Talent Manager, Lana Jay
“The calibre of candidates, specifically graduates, has been exceptionally high this year and we now have a confident group of RAPIDs in place across Europa’s network of Road branches.
“We’re now looking at our future talent pipeline and adding a second intake to start in September will allow us to capture the attention of graduates and school-leavers who are currently reviewing potential career choices.”
“For Europa it’s all about finding candidates who are the right fit for the business – we’re looking for graduates and school-leavers who are passionate about starting a career in sales, self-motivated, charismatic, energetic and enthusiastic.”

More about how the RAPID programme was created
The initiative is the brainchild of Europa’s Managing Director Andrew Baxter, designed to appeal to highly ambitious and focused individuals who are keen to earn and learn, hit the ground running and progress up the sales career ladder from as early as 18-years-old.
Europa’s own management team can tell some inspiring success stories of starting at a junior level and working their way up to Director level, moving roles internally and progressing and developing gradually through the business.
