Application Process

Like many other companies, DHL has a specially designed graduate recruitment process to select the most suitable candidates for our Programs.  We believe that all stages of our recruitment activities are a two way process; for us to see whether you are suitable for the roles you have applied for, and for you to understand whether DHL is the right organization for you.  

1. Application 

Once you have decided which Program to apply for you will need to complete an online application. You will be asked to enter personal details, together with qualifications and work experience. You will also be asked some specific questions relating to the minimum criteria for the Program so please ensure you meet these before applying. You will need to provide proof of these at a later stage so please answer honestly

2. Strengths Journey

Once you have completed the application stage, you will be progressed to our DHL Strengths Journey. This is designed to assess how you would handle situations that you would encounter in the role you are applying for. It has been developed as a bespoke tool for DHL and is based on real life situations which our graduates have experienced.

3. Video Interviewing

If you pass the DHL Strengths Journey, you will then be invited to complete a video interview. The purpose of the video interview is for us understand your motivations for working for us at DHL. It also gives us the opportunity to find out more about you and your experience.

4. Experience Day

Following the video interview, if you are successful, the final stage of the process is the experience day. Preparation is key but it is also important that you are yourself and show us who you really are! We will provide you in advance the details of what to expect.
