Skills for Logistics reveals modern day guild

  • 04 October 2012
  • By Chris Druce

Skills for Logistics (SfL) has started the roll-out of a free Logistics Guild, which is intended to boost workers’ self-esteem and improve the sector’s standing.

The modern day guild is described as “a member network run by members” and is part of a range of initiatives being undertaken by the sector skills council such as the occupational craft skills groups.

“The guild will boost the self-esteem of the 2.4 million people in the sector, and act as a starting point to improve the sector’s image,” SfL chief executive Mick Jackson said.

Slotting into SfL’s professional development stairway, a progression ladder setting out the route individuals need to travel to reach specific roles, the guild will also offer members access to a credit union.

There will be other member benefits too, with bulk purchasing being considered that could, for example, see participants enjoying cheaper car insurance.

Guild members will have access to a jobs board, and SfL will offer free enrolment to the 25,000 apprentices already working in the sector to help et the scheme moving.
