Join our team!
Our people strategy is simple: hire the right people and promote from within.
Hop aboard!The moment you become a member of the Mainfreight family, your career hits overdrive - if you want it to. Anything is possible here because you get to work alongside the best people and make real-life decisions.
We promote from within our own European or even global pool of talent and give you the freedom to go as far as you dare. If that freedom means travelling and living in other parts of the world, if a new area of the business gets you excited or you’re fired up about running this global business one day, we say “go for it”!
Our commitment to creating a 100 year company is not about reaching an end point in 100 years time. It’s about longevity; growing a business that’s strong, iconic and enduring.
We are focused on growing in both capability and scale within our existing markets. We're also rapidly expanding our network into new territories. As the world's new trading nations emerge, Mainfreight will be there to meet the demand for global logistics.
To achieve our goals and aspirations we know that we need to recruit and develop the next generation of savvy, fresh-thinking and globally-aware leaders. We never stop looking for people who can help lead our business into the future.
Leadership at Mainfreight is a way of doing things. It's a mindset rather than a role and it's accessible to everybody who's willing to step-up. We are a team that's fiercely ambitious, proud and compassionate. We look for that in our people and in return, offer them the world. At Mainfreight how far, how soon and where, is up to you.
Our business can be broken down into three core areas:
We have a 100-year vision, that means every person and every decision we make today will leave an imprint on this company now and for 100 years to come. This long-term vision guides us as a business and determines both our decisions and actions every day.
As we extend our operations across the major trading nations of the world, we continue to stand out for the right reasons. It is our uncompromising quality, agility and unique culture which sets us apart.
We believe in working hard but we also have fun and a laugh while we do it. Our team is empowered to make decisions and have a say in how we do things.
Once you have learnt the fundamentals of Mainfreight on the operations floor, you will move into other areas of the business where you will get the right mix of autonomy and support. We believe that smart people can learn the specifics of any role so our focus is on helping you develop personal and professional skills that will allow you take on any role in the business.
We are an ever-changing business and we are constantly reviewing new ways to help our team develop the world-class skills that will lead our business into the future.
Our ongoing team development programs around the world currently includes:
- A full induction program
- Learning the business from the operations floor-up
- Structured leadership programmes
- Personal development courses
