  • Choose us.
  • If you don`t know who we are then you soon will; XPO Logistics is a top ten global provider of transport and supply chain solutions. We employ over 89,000 people across over 1,431 locations in 32 countries across Europe, America and Asia. We work with some well-known household names including Marks & Spencer, Tesco, ASOS, H&M, MISSGUIDED & Vauxhall which means if you`re successful, you will too.

    A bit about our scheme.
    Our award winning scheme runs over two years consisting of four six-month placements in different areas of our business including warehousing, transport, business development and support services. The beauty of joining XPO Logistics is that you will get an opportunity to try different things; In year one you`ll gain operational experience in both warehousing and transport meaning in year two we can create a bespoke programme depending on your specific area of interest.

    A bit about your development.
    Throughout these two years we also offer first-class training to ensure your development never stops. This includes a qualification in Leadership & Management, an International Certificate in Professional Competence (CPC) and an Institute of Safety & Health qualification (IOSH).

    A bit about your future.
    Throughout the programme we are looking to cultivate our leaders and managers of tomorrow (we currently have 3 directors who have been through the scheme). After successful completion of the two years you`ll move into a permanent position where the training, development and career progression will continue.

    A bit about you.
    We feel the attitude and personality you`ll bring is much more important than the type of degree you hold. You`ll need to be interested in the supply chain industry, have bags of enthusiasm, a positive attitude and be a logical thinker. You`ll also need to remember that we`re looking for our future leaders so you`ll also be looking for a career rather than just a job.
