Finance Graduate Programme 2021
Our Finance Graduate Program puts you into real management roles across our leading logistics and supply chain business. You’ll deliver real results as a valued member of our team and you’ll learn as you lead and inspire. Our supportive culture and investment in industry-recognised training will help you get the most out of your time with us - because when you’re the best you can be, you’ll help us to be the best too!
Our Finance team are responsible for managing DHL’s resources so it can meet its goals and objectives – to be the world’s leading Logistics provider. As companies like ours grow, it's important to have a structured approach to Finance. It’s all about supporting our front line business – our Warehouse & Transport teams.
The DHL Finance Graduate Program provides placement opportunities for graduates to experience a broad range of different environments within both site and regional Finance teams. As a DHL Graduate, you will benefit from working within a variety of business sectors which will include working with some of DHL’s high profile customers in our consumer & life sciences, retail, automotive, Specialist Services & Transport, engineering, energy & chemical sectors.
During your program, you may undertake positions such as a Finance Assistant, Business Analyst or Finance Manager, or be involved in large scale Finance Projects which you support & manage.
Most of the learning occurs on the job, when graduates are faced with real life daily challenges and responsibility; however, we also supplement this experience with formal management skills development training.
