Women in the Supply Chain

Where they’re working, what they’re doing and the current numbers.

The Supply Chain in the UK

The Supply Chain in the UK has endless employment opportunities, employing around two million people in the country (roughly one in 12 people). The careers available are vast and wide, from warehouse and production operatives, professional drivers and engineers to managers and directors across production, manufacturing and logistics.

But where do the women of the United Kingdom fit into the supply chain?

Where do women fit in?

Over the past 40 years, the UK has seen an almost continual rise in the proportion of women in employment. The employment rate among women of ‘prime working age’ (aged 25-54) is up from 57% in 1975 to a record high of 78% in 2017. How does this match up in the supply chain though? Currently, the total number of women working in the supply chain across all careers is almost 500,000.
