Amy Kay – DHL Express

Company: DHL

Role: Leadership Development Graduate

Amy is a graduate on the DHL Express Leadership Development Scheme. She is currently in HR but will be moving round 4 different departments over my 2 years. A minimum of a 2:1 in any university degree is required for this role. Amy has a first-class degree in Criminology.

Amy applied for her job on the Prospects website. She has always been interested in applying for Graduate Schemes as they give you the flexibility to try many different departments, that typically a normal job would not offer. Amy did not know what she wanted to do, so the graduate scheme gave her the opportunity to experience different aspects of the company before deciding how she would like her career to progress.

Amy has learnt through life experience’s how to be adaptable, a skill that is crucial in the logistics industry.

“You never know what the day is going to bring or the challenges you may face so it essential that you can adapt to all situations that may arise.”

The best thing about Amy’s role is the incredible opportunity it offers to move seamlessly across different departments and collaborate with a diverse range of talented individuals. She is very privileged to be able to meet so many talented people and learn so many new skills every day.

Although Amy have not been with DHL long, she has so many Career highlights. Most recently she was a part of fundraising within the business for the Pulmonary Fibrosis Trust. We carried many events all in the hopes to raise as much money as possible, for a charity very close to our heart. Amy is very proud of our efforts, raising just under £3,000.

Although this is not part of her everyday job, it was an opportunity to give back and be a part of something very special. She is very proud of the team.
