We know our customers are facing an important challenge; how to secure the skilled workers they need to keep up with demand. The PWLTP is our way of helping you find the talent you need by providing access to free industry training. Our focus is on creating valuable career opportunities for young, unemployed and disadvantaged people, enabling you to support your local communities, while strengthening your recruitment pipelines and talent pool.
We're always interested to talk with our customers about their recruitment needs and through the PWLTP we hope to help you fill roles within your business by giving you access to newly trained candidates. If you have a bespoke requirement we can even curate a course tailored to the specific needs of your business.
“I would like to say how happy I am with the service provided as part of the Prologis PWLTP scheme, as a result of a strong working relationship built between Syncreon, Prologis, Goodwill Solutions and Serco. Our first group of recruits have shown nothing but confidence, positivity and enthusiasm, with a willingness to learn. The communication between all parties has been fantastic. I’m looking forward to a lasting relationship making a difference to people’s lives whilst addressing a critical recruitment need, this has given us a new way of unlocking pools of talent!”
Nichola Elliot, HR Generalist, Syncreon
Syncreon, a company that specialises in supply chain & logistics solutions is a global customer for Prologis – with 1.1m sq ft across four countries.
In the UK, during a regular Customer Care session with Syncreon it was established that they were keen to recruit more staff at their distribution centre based at Prologis Park Midpoint in the Midlands.
Step forward the Prologis Warehousing & Logistics Training Programme (PWLTP) – a course which gives people the skills & knowledge they need for a successful career in logistics.
PWLTP was established in 2021 as a way for Prologis to support its customers to secure the skilled workers they need through free industry training. The focus of the programme is to create valuable career opportunities for young, unemployed and disadvantaged people or those looking to reskill.
Following successful completion of the foundation PWLTP course, four people were successfully placed with Syncreon, joining a great business in a growing industry with valuable career development opportunities.
“It’s been great to be part of the staffing solution for Syncreon, and to be able to provide jobseekers with a route into employment in a growing sector with fantastic growth opportunities. We look forward to welcoming more people onto PWLTP programmes and supporting more of our customers in this way”
Liz Allister, Real Estate & Customer Experience Manager, Prologis
You can be safe in the knowledge that participants in the PWLTP have learned from some of the industry's best. The Supply Chain Academy's professional mentors and teachers all have first-hand experience of working within the logistics sector, in many different roles, from management to operations, and everything in between.
We've got close ties to important industry and business stakeholders too, including the Department for Work and Pensions and the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP). From the outset we've ensured that our Programme carries real weight within the logistics world and the wider business community.
