You will be exposed to various projects at different stages of completion and design solutions both independently and collaboratively, using SketchUp to bring your ideas to life. If you like the idea of being trained to help design some of the most innovative solutions within logistics currently, then this is the programme for you.Structure of the scheme:The CFC Solution Design Team incorporates technologies and innovations from across Ocado Group into each of our CFC sites. You will spend time in one of our CFCs to learn the ins and outs of how they operate and the logistical requirements. As the scheme is designed for you to get a broad overview of our business, you will then rotate around a number of key departments including: CFC Operations; Service Delivery; Supply Chain; Business Planning; Automation Development; New CFCs Programme Management; and Operational Excellence. Each rotation will be at least one month long. This will develop your core skills, knowledge of Ocado Group, and your network across the business. When you join the Solution Design Team, you will actively participate in the design of future CFCs.
