Logistics provider GXO Logistics has announced it is to add approximately 3,000 positions in France over the next two years to meet e-commerce demand.
The company has begun recruiting for logistics agents, materials handlers, maintenance technicians and inventory managers. The company also will recruit for a variety of other positions, including managerial functions such as team leaders and operation managers, project managers and process and flow engineers.
With a focus on attracting, developing and retaining talent, GXO conducts training throughout the company that enhances safety, productivity, skills development and personal well-being at work. For this reason, some members of the teams joining the logistics platforms are the result of internal mobility and career development programs. GXO is also investing in technology and automation, including collaborative robots, or ‘cobots’, to improve safety and productivity.
Bernard Wehbe, managing director at GXO France, said, “We are looking forward to welcoming new members to our teams and integrating them into our operations and our culture of safety, diversity and inclusion. When we hire at GXO, we don’t just create jobs – we create careers. We are looking for talented professionals who share our values, our excitement in using innovative technologies and who will support our growth while developing their own careers.”
