Make our logistics legendary

Keen to get to the heart of customer service? To deliver people-first logistics solutions with the power to transform business? Join us on our Logistics Intern Programme and experience what it is like to work as part of the on-site management team in our Castle Donington Distribution Centre.  Because it’s never too soon to think about your future legacy. 

Our logistics team are right at the heart of delivering the products our customers want through a service they love.

Through the ten-week Internship you’ll become an integral part of the team, gaining hands-on practical management experience as your work across a number of departments. You’ll see how our innovations as well as how our existing practices help us deliver a culture of continuous improvement, and how we use data to drive our operation and achieve our targets.  Learning all about how we engage, lead and develop our people along the way, and seeing first-hand how our leaders deliver for customers. Show an ability to adapt to meet demands, a curiosity for the commercial world, an analytical mindset, and a passion for crafting a seamless experience, and you’ll do well here. Do really well, and you could even be offered a place on our graduate scheme. 

Legends are made, not born – so we’ll invest in your soft skills development and help you understand a bit more about yourself. You’ll come away with greater skills, knowledge and insight into what a career in Logistics could look like once you graduate. 

You don’t need a specific degree to apply for this programme, but you’ll need to be an analytical problem solver, with a love of process and delivery, an interest in leadership and a determination to succeed.

Application Guidance

Legends seize the chance to use their strengths every day. That’s why we’re looking to see what makes you tick through the following assessment stages:

  1. An online assessment taking approximately 45 minutes, focusing on your individual strengths
  2. An on-demand video interview
  3. A final assessment stage; either at an assessment centre attended alongside peers, or a final interview

We’ll support anyone who requires reasonable adjustments to their application process – just let us know before the assessments start.

Some technical programmes may ask you to complete a short numerical reasoning test or a coding assessment. And most of our assessments are untimed, but we’ll make you aware of any timed elements in advance.

As a tip, avoid overly rehearsing your responses, especially for your video interview. We want you to be bold, be different, and be you.
