About this programme:

The DHL Supply Chain & Logistics Programme offers graduates the opportunity to be at the heart of our business. The programme is 24 months in length, and you will have the chance to experience 2 different 12 month placements.  The placements are as varied and wide ranging as our business – you could be running a shift in the warehouse, or managing a team of drivers, to working on a customer funded project. And everything else in between. 

You will get to experience a number of different sectors which will include working with some of DHL’s high profile customers in our consumer & life sciences, retail, automotive, Specialist Services & Transport, engineering, energy & chemical sectors.

The environment is fast-paced and constantly changing.  The focus is on giving our graduates real responsibility, and ensuring they take accountability for their actions and delivering results.  To support your development in both technical and people management skills, you will not only receive on the job training which is second to none, but also attend formal workshops and experience real life business projects.
