The Mainfreight Development Programme

The Mainfreight Development Programme offers you an exciting opportunity to immerse yourself in the diverse and fast-paced global industry that is Mainfreight! We aim to give a great depth of understanding and practical knowledge to develop your career with the potential for great leadership opportunities. Think you have got what it takes? Stay tuned!

Our Development Programme

Our programme is open to School Leavers and Graduates, we are not like your average programme. We believe in giving everyone a practical and hands-on learning experience in order to really understand the nuts and bolts of the company. This is a real job where your contribution and team effort can make a real difference. You will begin working on the floor, at the core of our business. It allows you to experience the Mainfreight culture, understand the inner workings of the company, be a part of a team, and a vital cog in the Mainfreight blue machine.

Learning the company by being part of the operations, literally means starting in the depot or the warehouse and handling the freight. We are not bound by rigid rotations; we don’t hold your hand but do give support and guidance to help steer you in the direction that you want to head. There is a lot of freedom and flexibility to carve out your own career path with the support from mentors, Branch Managers, and other team members!
