We recognise that enhancing organisational and leadership capability is a critical enabler for growth so we’re increasing our focus on providing high quality training solutions and development opportunities for our people. We have ambitious plans to improve the performance of our Distribution Centres so we are creating a dedicated technical training team to support Supply Chain.
