European Logistics Placement

Are you looking for a Logistics placement in the UK?  Are you enthusiastic, numerate, IT proficient and a team player? If your answer is 'YES' we may have just the opportunity for you!

We have an exciting opportunity for a paid internship within our European Logistics team, where you will be able to gain valuable work experience in a global FMCG company.  You will be part of a growing team with a wide remit across end to end supply chain, from management of inbound materials to outbound supply and customer fulfilment.

The Opportunity

We are seeking an intern to join our European Logistics team, based in Folkestone, Kent on a 12-month contract commencing in Summer 2022.  This is a great location on the Kent coast, with easy access to both London and the Channel Tunnel; we even have sea views from our logistics main office!

The role will combine a range of exciting projects, for example:

  • helping to drive logistics efficiency using our SAP platform

  • stock control and inventory management from raw materials through to finished products held in the UK and in our European locations

Our ideal candidate will be articulate and commercially aware, have an enquiring mind and be able to work on their own initiative.
