Meet Lee, Graduate Management Trainee

Lee attended York St John University where he studied Criminology and graduated in 2021. I chose XPO as it is a global, forward thinking company with a track record of development. Their strong focus on investing in young people made me feel valued from the get go and I've not looked back since.

Lee Harris

Graduate Associate

XPO Logistics

I'm currently on my second placement based at our British Gypsum contract and my day to day roles include compiling data and reporting this to the customer, stakeholder management, supporting our backhaul department and I am currently managing my first project.

I would say the best part of my job is the people that I work with and have met on my time on the scheme. I am supported in every aspect of my role and I have been lucky enough to build a network that I can go to when I'm in need of advice. The challenging part of the role is relocating as it can be challenging having to move away from family and friends. However, it has pushed me to make sure I build new relationships and I've been able to rely on people for help and support in both my placements.

My training throughout the scheme has included completing my Mental Health First Aider course, my Transport management CPC and I am currently in the process of a Leadership and Management Level 3 course. My career has progressed so much in the space of a year, more than I could have imagined. I have found myself in a role in which I learnt a recognised planning software in Paragon, and I now manage and support on projects across the British Gypsum network. Other than the people, I think the best thing about working for XPO is the flexibility and the number of new experiences and challenges that arise. I know that I can learn and explore numerous areas of the business and will be fully backed to do so. I also feel that the values that XPO hold, stay true to the workplace and the people I've found myself working with, are all focused towards the same goal
