Travis Perkins supports supply chain degree

Builders and plumbers merchant group Travis Perkins is joining with other large corporations as sponsors of a new Novus logistics and supply chain BSc degree.
The four-year course is aimed at tomorrow’s supply chain professionals, to encourage new talent to consider a career within the industry, and offers successful graduates a guaranteed job.

Other companies supporting the degree are Dixons, Sainsburys, DHL and B&Q.

Andy Kaye, chair of the Steering Committee of The Novus Trust, said: “The industry understands that a solution to the impending skills gap is required and is rallying behind this innovative degree.

“We encourage more companies to sign up for the exciting sponsorship opportunities and a chance to recruit the best new talent.”

The pilot course begins in September this year.
