Future Leader Program, Asia

Mainfreight is looking for enthusiastic, proactive and motivated Future Leaders to join our ever growing team across Asia.

We’re in the business of global logistics, but that doesn’t mean you need to have studied this or have experience in the industry. If you have a positive attitude and you’re willing to learn, then one of our entry level positions could be perfect for you! We’ll teach you everything you need to know about global logistics, while developing your leadership skills in the business world.

Mainfreight provides logistics solutions to a wide range of customers. We import, export, warehouse and transport wholesale goods around the country and world! This is a dynamic and fast paced industry where every day presents new challenges.
 

We started in little old New Zealand with a few thousand dollars and one truck back in the 70’s… now we’re a global business with offices all over the world and generating over NZ$2 billion in revenue annually. We need future leaders with the same drive and determination that our founders built this company on.

Our company culture is to promote from within so we look for people who want to lead and manage others in the future, but also understand that you need to start at a grass roots level and work in key operations and customer services first. No part of the operations will be above or below you, it’s all about understanding the big picture.

At Mainfreight, we value individuality, personality and guts. While your degree or qualifications are important, we’re just as interested in your sports and interests, your part time jobs and what makes you, you. We believe these are the qualities that will help you one day, lead a team, a branch or a country. If you're a college graduate who's hungry to learn, grow, be challenged and travel, you've come to the right place.

As a Future Leader within our business, support is given through a development program of leadership training, mentoring, projects, and peer networking to develop your personal leadership skills and business knowledge.
