Logistics UK has launched a free guide for employers from across the sector on ‘Funding and support for accessing logistics skills,’ as British industry faces a shortage of skilled workers, including lorry drivers.

“There is currently an acute issue with the recruitment and retention of roles across our industry, not least HGV drivers,” said Logistics UK Policy director, Elizabeth de Jong.

“Many employers are confused about how to access vital funding in order to recruit and train new workers. This new guide, produced with the active involvement of the Department for Education and the Department for Work and Pensions, gives clear and concise information about the schemes available to employers and where and how to apply for funding, including for apprenticeships and traineeships, to attract and train new employees.

“Much of Logistics UK’s work to support skills in our sector involves campaigning for policy changes to help create a more sustainable pipeline of staff to meet the demand for people in our sector. But this new guide provides simple and practical steps which will help recruiters right across our industry to identify and enrol the workforce our sector so desperately needs.”

Logistics UK represents businesses which are vital to keeping the UK trading and more than 7m people directly employed in the making, selling and moving of goods.
