The Company

Suttons is a world class bulk logistics provider. Our strict quality standards and leading-edge asset management technology are applied throughout our global business, meaning our customers receive the same first-class service from our teams across the globe.

Suttons has been a logistics service provider for over 80 years. Throughout that time, we have grown and developed by constantly investing in people and assets to ensure that the services we provide respond to our customers’ requirements.

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to logistics. We understand the complexities of supply chains and the care and attention to detail required. That’s why every single supply chain solution we provide to our customers is tailor made to help them achieve their business requirements.

Our specialist logistics services cater for the entire supply chain and our global office network means that we are always local and available to our customers.

Main purpose of the role:

By combining formal learning with ‘real - world’ challenges across a number of placements, this programme will give you an excellent grounding in a career within a major global player in the logistics industry. The graduate scheme will offer exposure to the following areas of the business: engineering, operations and commercial.

Providing technical support, trainees will take a ‘bottom - up’ approach to learning about the organisation and will work closely with the operations and commercial departments to ensure the highest levels of technical excellence. This may be done via the introduction of new technology and hardware, reviewing current practices and processes, trouble-shooting and problem solving, forward planning, reviewing health and safety processes, quality systems and assurance.

The individual:

Academically, we are looking for CCC (or higher) at A-level, and a 2:1 degree (or higher) from either Chemical Engineering or Mechanical Engineer. You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills.

  • A future leader
  • A self-starter
  • Analytical
  • Logical and discerning
  • Willing to learn
  • Career minded
  • Able to question effectively

Training & development:

Investment in people development is a core principle in our culture, as we want to ensure that you can learn, grow and have a rewarding career with us. We are a business where our people make a massive difference every day.

As well as bespoke, on-the-job development, you will also be offered the following learning and development opportunities:

  • National and international business exposure
  • Time at one of our international offices
  • A Junior-middle management position after the first two to three years
  • Progression within technical services; engineering, project management or line management.
  • Progression in a non-technical capacity; working within the operations department or a commercial function.

In return for all your hard work we will also take you through our management training programme, delivered by Discovery and accredited by the ILM.

Salary and benefits:

At Suttons Group, we know how hard our employees work and what a substantial contribution they make to our business, which is why we offer the people who join us a very attractive package.

This includes:

  • £22,000 - £24,000 starting salary
