Life at DHL for graduates

We are committed to bringing in and developing Graduate Talent across all levels of our 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 (and sometimes different countries too). 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 graduates – who we truly see as our leaders of the future. And we know this for a fact as we have a large number of real success stories across the business!

With us, not only will you be developing your knowledge and understanding of the logistics industry, but you will also grow both professionally and personally. From the moment you start with us, you will be given real responsibility – whether that’s for people, budgets, projects or processes. They all need to be managed effectively to ensure we continue to drive our vision of being ‘The Logistics Company of the World’.
