Specialist recruiter, Innovate Freight Talent has expanded its team with a recent graduate, helping to bring the younger generation into logistics.

Sophie Edmonds has been appointed as part of the administrative team, and was drawn to a role in the logistics sector, following her sister Kate who joined the team as a Talent Resourcer in November 2023.

Sophie said: “Joining the team has allowed me to experience first hand how wide-reaching the logistics sector is and its impact on how the country operates.

“It’s been incredibly interesting to see the breadth of the industry and just how much it impacts our daily lives.

“I’d never considered a career in logistics before joining Innovate Freight Talent, and since taking on the job it’s been eye-opening to see the sheer variety of roles on offer in the industry.”

Sophie’s addition is just one of the many ways in which Innovate Freight Talent continues to support government-backed initiative Generation Logistics – a scheme aimed at uniting the logistics industry and nurturing the next generation of talent.

A recent survey by The Careers Happiness Index found that those working in transport and logistics are the most unhappy with their careers, now the specialist logistics recruiter is looking to buck the trend by investing in fresh ideas.1

Richard said: “We’ve been supporting Generation Logistics since we branched into the recruitment sector as a way of encouraging younger people into the industry.

“We know how fast paced and ever evolving the logistics industry is, which is why it’s more important than ever that we’re bringing in young talent with new ideas.

“By investing in our team, we’re investing in the sector by committing ourselves to getting the best candidates in the right roles.

“Sophie’s appointment will help us to build on our successes in recruitment and continue to support organisations in the logistics sector with their hiring needs. Sophie brings a different perspective to the team, and will take on a dynamic role, involving candidate and business outreach.”

She will also be joining the team at Multimodal at the NEC in Birmingham on June 11-13, where Innovate Freight Talent will be available to talk all things logistics recruitment at stand A3. Managing Director Richard Litchfield will also be presenting on how to attract the best talent to your organisation.

Innovate Freight Talent is continuing to grow its impressive roster of clients within the logistics sector, and the team will be present at the upcoming Multimodal Exhibition, to showcase its offering to prospective customers.
