What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Try to experience as much as you possibly can before applying. This experience is vital while in the working world as you are aware of different situations and how to deal with them, making you more appealing on your CV. Also, knuckle down on your studies. Having strong qualifications just shows the employer that you are capable of the workload and also being able to understand it at a high level. This is crucial whilst on an apprenticeship like this as you will encounter new knowledge every day so having the ability to process it all and understand it is vital for efficiency and even your own progression.
Do you have any interview tips?
Sounds cliché but just be yourself. DHL is a company that is reasonable and prefers to go for the person rather than what is necessarily put down on paper. Having self-confidence and vital past experience (in any area not to be exact) is crucial in making you stand out to the employer. Yes, qualifications are key but without having that self-confidence being portrayed in the interview, the employer may not think you are fit for this (sometimes) intense course as you will constantly be in contact with various different people including managers of high importance.
