Mainfreight Development Programme - Graduate Opportunities



Mainfreight Development Programme

The Mainfreight Development Programme seeks those willing to get stuck in and are keen to embrace all kinds of challenges and new experiences.

Mainfreight is more than just a business; we are involved in Transporting, Warehousing and Global Supply Chain Solutions for our customers.
Roll up your sleeves for a practical and hands-on learning experience at the core of our business. Bringing value to your role, team, branch you will have the ability to grab opportunities with both hands and help paint the world blue.

Our philosophy is to recruit and 'grow' our own people, rather than hire people from other businesses. That is why we invest in and manage the long-term growth and development of our people, right from the start. As we promote from within, we fill all roles in the business from team who have started on the floor. To understand the fundamentals you would spend a minimum of 12 months in the operations.

The moment you become a member of the Mainfreight family, your career hits overdrive - if you want it to. Providing you have passion, we promote from within our own global pool of talent and give you the freedom to go as far as you dare.

The graduate program is considered unstructured and doesn't involve set pathways or fixed rotations. After learning the business from the operations floor, future roles in the business are endless. We offer positions in Sales, Account Management, Operations, Customer Services, Supply Chain Management, Management, IT, Training & Development and many others nationally and overseas.

We see your qualifications as just a part of who you are. We don’t look for specific degrees, we are keen to take on people with all different perspectives to provide diverse ways of thinking and approaching challenges. We're just as interested in your sports and interests, your part time jobs and how you'll fit our special culture.

To be considered for this position you must be a New Zealand citizen or resident and you will need to pass a Pre-Employment Background Check and Drug and Alcohol Test as well as provide evidence of Covid-19 Vaccination.

Join us on an exciting journey as we work towards our 100-year vision.
