Employee Training and Development

The training and development of the Blakemore Logistics workforce is seen as a critical ingredient to the ongoing success of the business.

All new starters receive a two-week induction and participate in a job role familiarisation programme in order to prepare them for their career in logistics.

Formal review of individual performance objectives and development needs takes place on an annual basis, to help create ongoing personal development plans for all employees.

A variety of training and development activities are undertaken at all levels of the business, with a view to ensuring that employee skills and capability are developed and that succession planning opportunities for employees are encouraged. 

The company runs its own Warehouse to Wheels driver training scheme, enabling warehouse colleagues to train as LGV drivers. 

Additional training opportunities include:
