We have a ‘promote from within’ philosophy which means we are committed to developing you so you can progress in your career here. After the one year programme we will continue to invest in you!

The world is truly your oyster at Mainfreight!

Every decision we make at Mainfreight today, we do so while looking at the next 100 years. We look for people who understand the long term benefits of learning from the ground up and gaining a broad base of experience. We also look for people who:
Recently graduated with a bachelor or masters degree
Are passionate about starting a career in the supply chain industry
Speak proficient English and have a high command of either Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai....etc.

About the programme

By joining our one-year development programme, you will receive the ideal combination of ‘doing’ and ‘learning’. Right from the start, you will get to work in an operational role whilst benefiting from a clearly defined structure of training and coaching. During the one year, you will learn more about your strengths and your interest within Mainfreight; whether that is within a leadership role, sales, business development, IT or finance, it’s up to you!

Promote from within

We have a ‘promote from within’ philosophy which means we are committed to developing you. As a Mainfreight family means there's no limit to where your career can go and how fast you can get there. We're a business that recognises merit, not time in the job so if you've got what it takes, don't expect to stay in the same role for long. Sitting on the sideline is not an option. You get to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, right from day one. You won’t be on your own though, the team around you is on your side. They genuinely want to see you make a go of it. Do you think you have what it takes to become a Mainfreight legend? Then we would like to hear from you! Get in touch with us now, or apply directly!
