BAR Young Movers
BAR Young Movers is a group open to all employees of BAR Members or Affiliates aged 40 years and under. The group was relaunched in 2017 with the intention of encouraging learning, networking and socialising between young people within the removals industry, helping them set up business relationships that will potentially last throughout their careers.
Along with peer networking the primary focus of the group is to ensure that business knowledge is passed on to a new generation of movers by senior figures from within the industry, thus ensuring that the industry endures for generations to come; with a secondary purpose of improving retention levels in the trade and promoting removals as a career.
A benefit to the employer
A thriving future for removals relies on younger people both joining the industry and coming through the ranks. So it’s vital that they are given the opportunity to understand how a job in removals can become a progressive and rewarding career.
Removal company owners and directors will undoubtedly gain from the experience and knowledge their younger employees gain from networking with their peers. Whether this is simply an increase in enthusiasm or ways to improve working practices in their company, exposure to new ideas can only benefit the employer.
“Whatever size your removals company, get your young staff with potential involved in the Young Movers. Your future may be one of your current drivers or porters! Only gain can come from those people engaging with their peers.”
Adam Chudley, Young Movers Committee Member, Chudley Moving & Shipping
