Careful, coordinated management is essential to the success of Royal Mail. That’s why our Logistics Managers are so important to us. They manage people and performance across teams to ensure we’re all working towards the same goal.

If you’re organised, collaborative and a natural leader, you could be perfect for the scheme. We’ll develop your management skills and enhance your strategic awareness through on-the-job placement roles.

Logistics is an integral part of the Royal Mail Group and plays a vital role in keeping the mail moving through the pipeline. Comprises three main operating units: National Distribution, Processing and Royal Mail Fleet. Our people do a variety of jobs from professional drivers of our large and medium-sized fleet to processing and cross-docking mail in our regional distribution centres, walk bundling, rail and air centres. Logistics is also responsible for managing and maintaining the Royal Mail fleet of over 46,000 vehicles

You’ll complete up to three placements, involving management roles in Distribution, Processing and Air, to learn about everything there is to know, from managing people and performance to ensuring a top quality service is provided for our customers.

We’ll give you management responsibility from the day you start, giving you time to learn the ropes before heading up a team of 25 to 40 people. We’ll enhance your budding management skills and supplement your day-to-day learning with leadership development and raise your strategic awareness.

In year two, you will be given the opportunity to study for Supply Chain Leadership Professional Degree Apprenticeship that will provide the theory and a professional qualification to further the knowledge you will have gained on the job.
By the time you complete the scheme, we’ll assess you to evaluate whether you are ready to manage one of our shifts or sites and in the future, lead an area, or plant within the business.
