Jared is a Graduate Trainee in Customer Services in the logistics sector.
What does a typical day look like for you?
My tasks vary day-to-day based on volume. My key responsibilities include creating bookings for jobs, communicating with customers via the phone and email, and relaying information between planners and customers.
What career journey have you been on to get where you are now?
Logistics wasn’t something I had considered while at school. I spent five years in various retail and retail management jobs but decided to pursue a career in transport on the recommendation of a friend, and I’ve never looked back!
What excites you about your industry?
Evolution! Transport and logistics is a very exciting industry to be involved in as it is constantly adapting and evolving to reduce costs and cope with increased demands while working towards a more energy efficient future.
What advice would you give to your 13-year old self?
You don’t have to focus on a career immediately – explore your options and find something that excites you, that is engaging and that you find interesting.
