Supply Chain #NextGen deadline extended

The entry deadline for Supply Chain #NextGen has been extended to Friday 5th August, allowing for a larger pool of young talent to be considered.

Supply Chain #NextGen, in association with Generation Logistics, aims to celebrate 30 people under the age of 30 currently working in the logistics industry who have already demonstrated significant passion and drive in their role, resulting in big wins for their business.

Sponsored by CILT UK, the initiative is open to all young talent working in the logistics and supply chain sphere. There are no restrictions on seniority, length of service or sector, in order to recognise vital contributions from people taking their first steps in their career in the industry.

The 30 winners will be announced at a special ceremony on Wednesday 7th September at IMHX 2022 (International Materials Handling Exhibition 2022), the UK’s largest intralogistics event. Finalists can expect to gain access to a number of exciting opportunities to ensure their career continues on an upwards trajectory, including: a guest speaker slot on the Logistics Podcast, invites to industry roundtables, seats on panels at major events, and more.

The judging panel includes two people who have been vocal proponents of the logistics sector for decades: Clare Bottle, CEO at UKWA; and Sharon Kindleysides, CEO at CILT (UK).

Sharon said: “CILT (UK) is absolutely delighted to be the sponsor of the Supply Chain #NextGen Class of 2022. This is an amazing opportunity to recognise and celebrate outstanding young talent working in the Supply Chain Sector and we look forward to meeting the top 30 nominees at IMHX.”

Clare said: “Young people can’t fix everything, but they are definitely part of the solution to our labour crisis.  Logistics has an image problem: we need good news stories to persuade parents, teachers and children that a career in logistics can take you places.

“#NextGen from IMHX is a welcome initiative to demonstrate that career growth is about merit, not time served. It's also fantastic that government and industry are finally working together on Generation Logistics, to showcase the amazing opportunities out there.”

You can nominate yourself or someone else by completing the nomination form, which contains a few questions and the opportunity to upload supporting documentation.

Nominations close on Friday 5th August, at which point the judging panel will begin evaluating and scoring each entry. 

Submit your nomination today on the Supply Chain #NextGen website.
