Because the work you do will really matter - Connecting people and improving lives means you will always be doing meaningful work – even if that just means putting a smile on someone's face. DHL manages more than 1 million customer contacts every hour. With DHL, you will get to see the real-world impact your work has on people's lives.

Because you can be sure of a bright future - In an uncertain world, the scale and scope of the business – and the resources that DHL possesses – offer a level of stability and security that few other organizations can match.

Because you'll be respected and supported - DHL’s diversity policies and practices are designed to tackle gender stereotypes, encouraging, enabling, and empowering women to excel in roles once dominated by men. Today, more than one in five middle and upper management positions is held by a woman. And the number is growing all the time.

Across the group, there are numerous programs to support and inspire female employees, ranging from networking events, career programs to talent pools. Let’s not forget to mention the 'Women at DHL Global Forwarding, Freight' initiative, which won a gold award at the internationally renowned Stevie Awards for Women in Business for two consecutive years.
