Logistics startup Delhivery has launched the Delhivery Training and Recruitment Programme to empower young jobseekers to build a career in the logistics industry. For recruits in entry-and mid-level operational roles, the programme guarantees jobs.
To select candidates for a five-week training programme in Gurugram, the company will conduct a national entrance exam on February 19, 2023, with an initial focus on 25 Tier II and Tier III cities, including Ganganagar, Ujjain, Kurur, Purulia, and Srinagar, among others.
Candidates for the programme must be between the ages of 22 and 32, have a 10th or 12th-grade diploma or pass, and have basic reading and writing English knowledge.
“The initiative is in line with our long-term vision to connect with talent across the country and create secure employment opportunities in one of the fastest-growing sectors in India,” Pooja Gupta, Chief Human Resources Officer, Delhivery, said.
Operational procedures, software applications, soft skills, and people management will all be covered during the classroom and practical in-centre training.
Delhivery will onboard the recruits for open managerial positions at its facilities across India after the course is completed.
“Our five-week training is a comprehensive, in-house programme designed by Delhivery Academy, focused on creating a ready talent pool in logistics. The depth and breadth of the programme will empower the youth with all the necessary skills to excel in logistics,” Suraju Dutta, Head of Delhivery Academy, said.
