What qualifications do I need to be a Warehouse Manager?
Logistics is an easy industry to enter at a high level with a degree. Any of the following subjects might be useful:
  • Business
  • Management
  • Economics
  • Engineering
  • Logistics
  • Environmental sciences
  • Geography
  • Maths
  • Statistics
  • Town planning
  • Social sciences
Whilst many graduate schemes in general will ask for a 2.1 from their applicants, logistics is one of the few industries that happily takes on graduates who have received a 2.2.
What skills do I need to be a Warehouse Manager?
Working in logistics requires a large number of general skills, whichever of the many varied careers you choose to pursue. They include:
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • A very high level of organisation and planning
  • Problem solving
  • Negotiation
  • Leadership
  • IT literacy
  • Working to deadlines
  • Customer service
  • Commercial awareness
  • Business awareness
  • An eye for detail
  • Good numeracy
Depending on your specific job you may also need to demonstrate skills in management of people, research and mathematical, statistical or scientific interpretation.

An awareness of the built environment and how supply chain and logistics can be ethical and green for all those involved is increasingly important.
What experience do I need to get a job in Logistics?
Work experience within large logistics companies, for example in the warehouse or in administration, should be easy to organise and can set you apart from other candidates applying for the same position. Contact a number of companies and ask if you can shadow a member of staff to start with. If you are taking a degree with a sandwich year or year in industry, this is a good opportunity to find experience in logistics that can set you apart when you graduate.
