DHL delivers job prospects for East Midlands young adults
Aug '08
DHL Express, the world's leading express delivery and logistics company, together with youth charity The Prince's Trust launched the 'Get Into Customer Services' initiative with 10 young adults starting the course.

The programme operated through DHL East Midlands will see 10 young adults undergo three weeks of training in customer services and then be guaranteed an interview for a position in the East Midlands office.

Get Into programmes are designed for unemployed young people aged between 16-25 years old to give them work experience and training in a job sector.

The Trust, which helped more than 40,000 young adults last year, works with 14 to 30 year-olds who have struggled at school, have been in care, have been unemployed long-term or been in trouble with the law.

Ken McCall, CEO of DHL Express UK and Ireland, welcomes the programme: “DHL is constantly striving to recruit the best local talent. As one of the East Midlands' largest employers, with over 2,000 staff, DHL is proud to be able to give back to the community and play its part in strengthening the UK economy by delivering a skilled workforce.”

Consisting of theoretical and practical training, the course will cover various areas in computing, accounting and product lifecycle, including an overview of the express and customer services industries. The participants will have the opportunity to experience what it is like being a courier for the day.

Linda Norville, The Prince's Trust Head of Programmes in the East Midlands said: “DHL has been instrumental in ensuring the success of our 'Get Into' programmes. It's businesses like DHL that ensure young adults are given great opportunities to get a head start in the workforce.”
