Here’s how our application process works

You can expect the process to be all about getting to know each other and figuring out whether we’re a good fit. Here’s how it works.

  • APPLY
    • Show us what you’ve got.Send us your CV and cover letter. This is your opportunity to stand out, so be sure to tell us all about yourself, why you stand out and what makes you a good fit for Mainfreight.

  • YOU’LL HEAR BACK FROM US
    • You’ve taken the time to get in touch, the least we can do is let you know your application has arrived safely. Whether it’s a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’, you’ll hear back from us pretty soon.

  • PHONE INTERVIEW
    • If it’s a ‘yes’ we’ll schedule in a time for a phone interview. We’ll usually get in touch  via email so keep an eye out and check junk mail folders if you’re waiting to hear from us.

  • FACE TO FACE INTERVIEW
    • If all goes well, we’ll get you in for a face to face interview. Study up on the Mainfreight business and Future Leaders Programme. Now is the time to ask any burning questions.

      If we hit it off at this stage you might be asked to do a personality test. This helps us plan for where you could fit into the business and how we can best develop your potential.

  • FINAL INTERVIEW
    • You’ve made the shortlist, this is your final round. If you can see yourself as part of Mainfreight and we can see you’ve got what we’re looking for, you’ll meet with a branch manager who makes the final decision and job offer.

  • WELCOME ABOARD!
    • You’ll get a formal job offer with an outline of all you need to know to assist you in saying “Yes!” Your global adventure is about to start!
