With over 85,000 employees at more than 1300 locations in over 100 countries, the Kuehne + Nagel Group is one of the world's leading logistics companies.
Either by land, air or sea, we go above and beyond to deliver unique transport, supply chain and integrated logistics solutions to every industry imaginable. We’ve achieved this by constantly adapting to changing needs, developing world-class capabilities and investing in our people who are at the heart of our success.
Here in the UK, an integral part of ‘our people’ is our service leavers, reservists, service spouses and partners. Kuehne + Nagel is a defence and armed forces-friendly organisation, recognising the benefits of employing defence and armed forces personnel and value what they can bring to the Company. We also recognise the support that we as an organisation need to provide in return.
In 2017 we signed the Armed Forces Covenant and became a Gold Award holder which demonstrates our continued commitment and support to the Armed Forces and the Defence communities. An example of the pledges we made are:
We will support the employment of veterans young and old, service spouses and partners.
We endeavour to offer a degree of flexibility in granting leave for service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment.
We support our employees who choose to be members of the Reserve Forces, including by accommodating their training and deployment where possible.
One of the ways that we are demonstrating the pledges we have made is by putting in place a number of military mentors across our business. The mentors act as a non-judgemental source of advice and encouragement, as well as acknowledging any outside influences that may affect work and help communicate these to the business if needed.
We have over 100 UK sites across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and a wide range of jobs at all levels, including warehouse operatives, drivers, team leaders, managers and head office roles (IT, HR, Finance and procurement to name but a few). We are a financially strong, stable and independent organisation, committed to employing service leavers and encouraging reservists. We are actively hiring across the UK so please come and talk to us today!
We’d like to leave you with a quote from one of our Shift Managers and ex Royal Logistics Corps.
‘I have told a lot of friends about Kuehne + Nagel, describing the overall recruitment process and the type of company it is. It is very professional and the training and support has been second to none; it is challenging but with that comes lots of opportunities. I couldn’t have wished for a better start to my civilian career. I do hope to stay with Kuehne + Nagel for as long as possible and I can’t recommend the company high enough’
