Future Leaders Programme

Explore a world of opportunities and see how our Future Leaders Programme can kick-start your career!

Our management traineeship is an intensive 3-year program that provides you with all the tools to become a great leader, trusted specialist or sales champion. You will have the opportunity to create your own career path within Mainfreight Europe. This traineeship is all about developing you!

Your journey
Right from the start, you will get to work in an operational role and on projects whilst benefiting from a clearly defined structure of training and coaching. You will fulfill two or three different roles during the program. Each role has its own specific responsibilities and challenges. From driving a forklift and handling shipments, doing sales calls, visiting customers and leading a team to strategizing with experienced managers, you will be active in the full range of supply chain management activities!

As well as fulfilling roles in different disciplines, you can follow an international career path or you could follow a local career path. We realise ambitions and interests change while your are developing and growing, so you do not have to choose from the start, as you will create your own career on the way!

Our offer
You will learn on the job and through involvement in (strategic) improvement projects whilst being coached. Furthermore, we yearly provide excellent leadership courses and team building activities. Next to this, quarterly you will participate in our Future Leaders sessions which are designed to be inspirational and visionary. Our European executive team are involved in these sessions. The coordinator of our trainee programme, internal coaches and external coaches offer continuous support in identifying your strengths, improvement areas and how to deal with the challenges you will face during your career at Mainfreight.

We have a ‘promote from within’ philosophy which means we are committed to developing you. After the 3-year programme, we will continue to invest in you. Former trainees of the program are now in roles such as Logistic Operations Manager, Air & Ocean Branch Manager, Forwarding Business Unit Manager, European Sales Manager or European Controller - to name just a few!
