About XPO Logistics

We are one of the world’s ten largest providers of transportation and logistics services partnering with well-known brands, such as Sainsbury’s, ASOS, B&Q and adidas. We’ve been voted the third best place to work in the UK by Glassdoor in 2018 and also named the World’s Most Admired Company in trucking, transportation and logistics for 2019 by Fortune (#1 in the industry).

At XPO Logistics our people are our business. This is reflected in our development culture and the “you grow, we grow” ethos, which lives and breathes within the company. Continuous improvement, pace and growth are all absolutely critical to our success within the fast paced industry of supply chain and logistics. As a result, we are passionate about equipping our people with the skills, knowledge and behaviours to meet these demands and to excel.

We are really excited to offer a number of exciting development opportunities to both prospective new recruits and our amazing internal colleagues. Starting with our apprenticeships, we currently offer over 20 different programmes spanning from entry-level right through to degree-level apprenticeships. Our apprenticeships cover anything ranging from HR, finance and business improvement, right through to warehousing and storage, traffic office and customer service. To date, we currently have over 490 apprentices across the business.

Our graduate programme has been running for over 10 years with great success at all levels, across all areas of the business and all locations. We currently have 50 graduates currently on our two-year operational graduate programme working across various placements across our network with a large number of previous graduates still working within XPO in senior management positions. Excitingly, we also launched a brand new four-year finance graduate programme at the end of 2018 with our first intake of two successful candidates joining the business in January 2019.

XPO also support local internships on request, sourcing suitable opportunities across the business for young talent to experience working within our sector. We are looking to launch sandwich year placements in the summer of 2019, offering third year students placement years at certain sites to take on a full-time position.

What makes us different is our people. We always strive to find talented individuals who are looking for an exciting and diverse career, not just a job! Internal progression is paramount across the business, allowing ambitious and capable individuals to further develop within XPO.
