In hope of helping tackling the UK national driver shortage, Hermes UK has launched a new scheme called Road to Logistics that aims to train unemployed people up to be drivers. At the end of the course is the potential for full time employment with Hermes, which is working to ensure it has its own ‘talent pipeline’, and is prepared for any future legislation and possible Brexit impact.
The Hermes UK Road to Logistics scheme is funded through its Apprenticeship Levy and will involve recruiting LGV apprentices who lack driving experience. They will be trained to Cat C and Cat C&E. It is open to all applicants of any age, and the training will take 12 months. The successful applicants will then be offered roles as employed Hub Drivers within Hermes’ hubs at Warrington and Rugby.
