Around 80 apprentices start a career in the courier, express and parcel (CEP for short) sector at GLS each year. All with the same aim: to learn, work and forge a career in a market with a dynamic future.
We provide apprenticeships throughout Germany – at our head office in Neuenstein, East Hesse, and regionally at our locations. Our motto: we train for our company. If you perform well and are highly motivated, you have good prospects of a permanent job with great opportunities for development.
You look forward to learning and working in a practice-oriented way. You see yourself as a team player – but you also want to take the initiative and take on responsibility yourself. You are keen to give your all and convince customers together with your colleagues. Have you already completed internships or gained experience abroad? Even better!
In among the action from the start: at GLS, exciting tasks await you from the outset – as do friendly teams to give you a warm welcome. We also provide variety: during your logistics apprenticeship you will familiarise yourself with all the relevant departments. And afterwards? Perhaps you would like to add on career training as an entry point or start dual studies at GLS?
