Millie Reed – DHL Express

Company: DHL

Role: Future Leader Graduate

Millie is on a management graduate scheme where she is learning key management skills around the business in various teams. Her focuses are people and project management with different focuses in each rotation. She is currently in a role in sponsorship within marketing at DHL where she works with our partners on various projects, for example The Residence, a member’s club at the O2 where we host some of our customers. The job required a 2:2 or above in an undergraduate degree.

Millie learned about this role via recommendation from a friend of a friend who was about to begin the DHL supply chain graduate scheme.

She had a broad range of experiences, ranging from jobs in insurance to the world of luxury travel PR. Alongside this she has done a lot of travelling across South America and Southeast Asia. This has majorly developed her adaptability, flexibility and versatility as she faces new challenges every day.

“The logistics industry is dynamic, with constant changes in demand, regulations, and technology – therefore these skills are vital. Unexpected challenges often arise in logistics, such as delays, disruptions, or changes in demand.”

The independence you gain from managing your own projects – creative and otherwise. Is what Millie loves about her role. Her most memorable achievement so far has been working with Harlequins and supporting on the DHL activations at the games.
