One of the big attractions of choosing a career in Freight Forwarding is the different pathways that your career could take you. Here you can read a range of case studies from established BIFA Members supporting this. You can also see top tips from existing apprentices as to why you should consider it.
What I love is that you never know what you’re going to get, every shipment is different and you don’t know what it’ll be until you open your emails in the morning. Every day is a learning curve.
My apprenticeship has allowed me to find a career in an ever evolving industry that is in demand. It has also allowed me to gain practical experience whilst gaining a new qualification.
