Sector Training Overview- Warehouse and Distribution

Free alternative to warehouse recruitment agencies

If you are recruiting for warehouse roles, we can help by providing you with a cost-free alternative to warehouse recruitment agencies. We vet all our candidates and provide them with warehouse and distribution sector training, so they are well prepared to fill your vacancies.  

The UK Warehousing Association recently reported that some warehousing businesses are experiencing staff shortages of up to 20%. 

Throughout the pandemic, we have witnessed massive change for businesses across the industry, particularly when it comes to recruitment. Online shopping skyrocketed during the lockdowns, and is showing no signs of slowing. 

 This has meant increased in demand for the warehouse and distribution sector. This overnight shift in consumer behaviour has undoubtedly put a strain on the industry and combined with the end of freedom of movement for EU workers, it has made warehouse recruitment tougher. 

How can we help you with your warehouse recruitment? 

When you partner with us, the candidates we put forward for your vacancies will have received in-depth employment support and sector-specific training. 


Training includes:

The topics we cover give candidates an overview of the warehouse and distribution sector, exploring the functions and activities the role requires, as well as taking an in-depth look at how administrative roles function within a wide range of business areas. 

 A key part of this industry specific training is preparing the candidate for the skills required to work in the sector.  

To ensure our candidates are as prepared as possible, we also cover:  

  • Communication skills, in particular the importance of active listening to ensure a positive working relationship.  
  • Transferable skills for candidates who are looking to upskill and become work-ready for a new sector.  
  • Equality and diversity training, including the Equality Act 2010 and the guiding principles within it.  
  • Health and safety requirements in the warehouse and distribution sector, including the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.  
  • Employability skills with a focus on what employers in the warehouse and distribution sector are looking for when recruiting, as well as CV preparation.
