Job description

Sad you’ve left University?

There is going to be a lot of things you’ll miss from University. All those late nights and last-minute deadlines for dissertations in the library at 11.59pm. But what are you really leaving behind?

You committed to three or four years at University, now commit to XPO Logistics to kick-start and build your career. Your two-year Graduate Programme with XPO will be broken down into four placements of six-months. You’ll cover areas including warehousing, transport, projects and support services. Not only that, you’ll also get a full-time job at the end of your placement – and potentially on the international scale. You will be working for a truly global, ambitious and growing business. You will be given a variety of management opportunities across your two years with us to fast track your career and fulfil your potential to become our next leader of the future. XPO Logistics will give you the tools to develop your career and help you fulfil your potential. You will be given responsibility from day one along with an amazing support network of colleagues and senior managers (some of which, also came through the same scheme!).

Remember all those times you were impatiently waiting for that student loan payment to come through? Does a starting salary of £25,000 per annum, rising to £26,000 per annum after year one sound good to you? No more living on instant noodles. You’re on your way to a life of champagne and caviar.

Fed up with packing the car every term to go home? With our placements, you’ll still have to pack up the car, but only every six months. On top of that, we pay and cover your accommodation costs for your first two weeks of each placement whilst you find your feet.

We guess you’ll miss your student discount? Wait, who says that’s going to change? You’ll have access to a variety of high street discounts including PureGym, Apple, Superdry, House of Fraser, Pizza Hut and many more!

Finally, no more exams. Just kidding, the learning doesn’t stop there. You’ll work towards a qualification in Leadership and Management, an International Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) and an Institute of Safety & Health qualification (IOSH).

Lastly, all those events where you met friends for life. Will you get the opportunity again now that you’ve left full-time education? Absolutely. Our people are at the centre of everything that we do, engagement being right at the top of our agenda. With your four placements across the UK, you’ll engage and meet new colleagues daily.

In the words of Stormzy, don’t be 'too big for your boots' and apply for our summer 2018 graduate intake.
