1. Application

Submit your online application on our careers portal. 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 Programme 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 page, 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 that our graduates have experienced. 

3. Job Simulation 

If you pass the DHL Strengths journey, you will be invited to complete a Job Simulation. The purpose of the Job Simulation is for you to showcase your real self, whilst completing a role-relevant DHL scenario. This will also give you an insight into situations you could experience as a DHL graduate. 

4. Experience Day

Following the Job Simulation, 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 on this day.
