Warrant Group is helping launch three new careers in logistics and supply chain to help support its customer focused 'can do' ethos.
Tom Kidd, Harvey Watt and Joshua Hardie have joined the company as apprentices and are learning the ropes, from liaising with shipping lines to handling Bills of Lading and customs clearances.
The three apprentices were recruited through the Liverpool and Sefton Chambers of Commerce and the St Helen's Chamber.
Tom, who joined the company in January as a business apprentice after completing his BTECs last summer, has been working with Warrant Group's exports team.
He said: "I'm dealing with customers on a day-to-day basis from inputting data to managing the dangerous goods documentation and dealing with shipping lines.
"I am really enjoying it, learning lots of new things and it's a great team here. Hopefully I will be able to share what I've learned with others in the future."
Harvey is studying a 12-month apprenticeship in International Trade and Logistics after joining the company last December. He is also working with the exports team.
He explained: "I knew nothing about shipping before I joined and everything has been new to me but it's really interesting and I am enjoying it," he said.
Joshua is studying a 12-month apprenticeship in Supply Chain Management, and joined Warrant Group in February 2019 as a Supply Chain Co-ordinator. Previously he had been working in construction
Joshua explained: "I decided that I wanted to better myself and learn new skills and forge a career path, it's very different from working in construction and I am really pleased to have this opportunity to learn new skills."
Lynsey Morrison, Finance Director at Warrant Group, said she was pleased the apprentices were flourishing in their new roles.
"Apprentices always bring a fresh injection of talent and ideas into the company and we are delighted to see Tom, Harvey and Joshua really getting to grips with the work and also embracing Warrant Group's 'can do' attitude.
"As the situation over Brexit continues to remain unclear, it's vital that we have the correct skills set and expertise to manage what is likely to remain a very challenging period."
