Build your career with DHL

In the fast-paced, ever-changing supply chain industry, DHL need to make sure they stay ahead of the game, and their apprentices play a crucial role in this.

With roles across the country, from transport logistics to finance, digitalisation to engineering, there is certain to be something for students of all interests.




Data Analyst - DHL

Data Analysts hold the key to making DHL better. They have the power to collate data from multiple sources to not only show DHL how they are performing now, but also how they can be better in the future. They need these people to work across all of their different clients and customers to interpret data and help create the DHL of the future.





DHL understand starting work for the first time in addition to gaining a qualification can be a lot to take on so there is a wealth of support available to all students. In addition to the dedicated Apprenticeships team who are there to guide them every step of the way, they'll be matched with an existing apprentice in the business as a Buddy.
