National Apprenticeship Week 2020 – James Beattie

James Beattie is studying for his second apprenticeship qualification at Transit UK in Southend.

He originally completed a Level 2 Logistics course at the company and is now undertaking a Level 3 Team Leader apprenticeship to further improve his career prospects.

Transit UK provide logistics options for a wide range of customers globally, from small parcels to full artic trucks and from express courier services to air/sea/road freight movements.

James works as a Freight Account Manager, looking after customers and building relationships with them. He said: “I found the role on the apprenticeship website. I’d never heard of logistics before, I didn’t know what is was but it’s actually quite interesting and good fun. 

“My qualifications are internationally recognised so I can take them with me wherever I go. The Team Leader course will help me to move up in this company or get a higher role with another organisation.”
