As a graduate in contract logistics you’ll be supporting some of our largest contracts, building up your technical and business skills on rotational placements experiencing inventory management, warehouse operations and transport operations. In addition to experiencing placements within our core operations, we’ll also look to broaden your skills with possible placements in our sales, solutions, project management or integrated logistics teams.

Starting in September 2018, our graduates enjoy a warm welcome to the business and immediately start to build their professional network. Each of our programmes consists of rotational business placements to ensure breadth and depth of learning and experience over the two year programme. On the job learning is complemented by dedicated graduate development workshops and further professional development through sponsorship of your CILT qualification. In addition, all graduates are part of our trainee network hub and are supported by dedicated Graduate sponsors and buddies from across the business.

If you’re ambitious, commercially-driven and eager to show what you can do, this is a great way to launch your career in logistics.
