Life at DHL for apprentices

Most of the training is vocational and as such will be delivered in the workplace, ensuring you will learn the skills you need to do the job well. The rest of the training is given by a Learning provider/college in partnership with DHL, either at the workplace, off-site (perhaps at college) or via e-learning.

The training is specifically tailored to ensure your personal goals are met and DHL develop the skills we need, giving apprentices a real advantage in our workplace. This means that apprentices not only have better long term salary prospects, but they also have excellent progression opportunities, whether looking to study further or develop through the ranks within DHL.

DHL is committed to bringing in and developing talent across all levels of the organisation. The roles and opportunities available with DHL are as diverse as the people who perform them. Many of our employees spend their careers in various roles working their way up through different departments and divisions. We think this says a lot about the sort of company we are and it’s something of which we’re exceptionally proud.

To help us continue to run the successful business DHL is today, we invest a significant amount of time, effort and attention in our apprentices – who we truly see as our leaders of the future.

With us, not only will you be developing your knowledge and understanding of the supply chain and logistics industry, but you will also grow both professionally and personally. Join us and help us continue to drive our vision of being.
