Hermes launches "Road to Logistics" scheme

Hermes launches "Road to Logistics" scheme

Leading consumer delivery company Hermes UK has launched a new initiative to help address the UK driver shortage and enable unemployed workers to gain valuable skills and the possibility of full-time employment.  It is designed to ensure the company has its own ‘talent pipeline’ and is prepared for any future legislation and possible Brexit impact.

The new “Road to Logistics” programme is funded through the company’s Apprenticeship Levy and will see Hermes recruit a number of LGV Apprentices who currently have no driving experience, supporting them to achieve their Cat C and Cat C&E Licence. The scheme is open to applicants of any age with the training taking 12 months.  All successful participants will then be offered roles as employed Hub Drivers within Hermes’ hubs at Warrington and Rugby.

The bespoke scheme is supported by Seetec, Hermes’ training provider, and includes both theory and practical sessions.
