What does leadership look like at Mainfreight?

Leadership at Mainfreight is a way of doing things. It's about your mindset and your behaviour rather than a role. Best of all it's accessible to everybody who's willing to step-up. You can show your leadership capabilities from day one. While you're rolling up your sleeves and learning everything there is to know about our business, you'll also have the freedom to make decisions, contribute ideas, build relationships and make a difference. Leadership at Mainfreight is based around our core values:

  • Family – respect and communication
  • Culture – integrity and empowering your team
  • Philosophy – growing the business and maintaining high quality standards

To be a successful leader, you will live, breathe and instill this culture throughout the business.
