The minute I saw an article about Kuehne + Nagel’s Graduate Programme I felt excited. When I looked closer I discovered how well structured it was, with lots of opportunities to work in locations across the UK.
I joined Kuehne + Nagel because of the global opportunities and avenues for development and working closely with other industries. Logistics is key to everyday life, but we don’t necessarily notice it because the transport, inventory and warehousing is all behind the scenes.
Moving placements gives us experience of different cultures and processes. In my first placement I learned about operational management roles in our Resource Recovery contract, a specialised area of the business that ensures our customers are as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible.
You have to adapt to each new environment and new colleagues, but our training is very good and relates back to the day job, where we are given real responsibilities and work with senior management. I’ve been involved in daily operations, customer meetings, continuous improvement activities as well as a variety of projects. We’re not just hidden away on the graduate programme!
