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.

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.”
