We are back in action at Worldskills Ireland in RDS this week, proudly representing and flying the flag for the logistics industry.
In recent days, thousands of 6th-year and TY students, accompanied by their career guidance teachers and parents, have walked through the door to explore career options and hear stories of apprenticeship success.
Among the tremendous talent and skills demonstrated by the logistics industry at the event have been the Logistics Apprentices Conor Field of DHL Global Forwarding, Jamie Donovan of Portway Trailers Limited, and Dublin Level 8 Supply Chain Management students who have been competing for the title of Irish Champion in Freight Forwarding in 2023. Technological University Dublin’s Head of Logistics, Supply Chain, and Project Management and WorldSkills Chief Expert in Freight Forwarding Declan Allen and his dedicated team were instrumental in making this competition possible.
‘Skills Change Life’ was the theme of the discussion panel on Heroes Stage, which featured outstanding female representation from the industry. LAA apprentices Nikita Forte from Stericycle Ireland, Amy Brady from Dawn Meats, and Transport Operations & Commercial Driving apprentice Sorcha Halpin from DPD Ireland discussed the wide variety of careers available to women in the sector and encouraged them to explore these options and get into it.
You’re amazing ambassadors for women in the industry, and thank you so much for sharing your inspirational stories.
Also, we would like to thank all participants and employers who supported us this year and wish all competitors in the Logistics and Freight Forwarding competition the best of luck.
Meet our team at stand S42 for more information about apprenticeships in logistics and supply chain.
