A group of Year 9 students visited GXO Logistics, Fradley Park in Lichfield.

The employer encounter aimed to highlight the many processes that happen each day in the business and to identify the many careers and career pathway options available which consist of training programmes, apprenticeships and employment.

Students were invited to hear about the many different roles undertaken on site, before putting on their PPE and embarking on a tour to identify career types, seeing the size of the business and the detail of the processes of work that is carried out, then moving on to visiting other internal corporate departments.

Faye Banks, Careers & Aspirations Lead, said: ‘Students enjoyed the tour and careers workshop and fully demonstrated their findings of logistical processes. This has been very useful for the students to see how such a large local business operates and all of the varying careers under one roof’.
