About Kuehne and Nagel

With over 82,000 employees at some 1,300 locations in over 100 countries, the Kuehne + Nagel Group is one of the world’s leading logistics companies. Its strong market position lies in the seafreight, airfreight, contract logistics and overland businesses, with a clear focus on high value-added segments such as IT-based integrated logistics solutions. 

Whatever it is. Whoever it’s for. If it needs transporting, we can take it. Safely, securely and on time. Wherever and whenever it’s needed. To do that we use the best equipment, the latest systems and employ the most talented people. People like you. 

When you woke up this morning you probably had no idea that the rest of your career might be defined by 144 million marbles or 30,000 tonnes of flying fish. You may never have heard of the 125-year-old company behind putting those products and many more on shelves across the world. All that’s about to change.

Our trainees help shape the future of our organisation and drive our business strategy forward. You won’t find yourself hidden away in a corner – from day one you’ll be immersed in the business operations and with responsibility for your own deliverables. We’ll support you along the way and if you’re ambitious and work hard the opportunities are endless. 

Our structured 2 year graduate programmes are based nationwide and offer talented individuals the opportunity to build valuable operational and commercial skills in a fast-moving logistics environment. You’ll broaden your experience and deepen your knowledge through a rotation of business placements. 

Starting in September with your induction programme, you’ll enjoy a warm welcome to the business and immediately start to build your professional network. Your business placements will be complemented by a dedicated development programme and you’ll be part of the trainee community hub, where you’ll be mentored and coached by colleagues across the business. We’ll also provide financial support to complete the relevant professional qualification for your chosen business area. 

We recruit across all areas of our business and have opportunities available in Contract Logistics, Airfreight, Seafreight, International Road Logistics, Finance, IT Infrastructure and Enterprise Risk Management. 

We offer a starting salary of £27,000, welcome bonus of £1000 and a further pay review after 1 year. You'll also receive great company benefits including pension, healthcare and access to our cashback and discount scheme (across a huge variety of retailers). 

If you’re ambitious, commercial, driven and eager to show what you can do, this is a great way to launch your career in logistics.
