Generation Logistics case study: Esther Kabiito, DFDS, Graduate Management Trainee


There aren’t many career choices that can match logistics for breadth of experience and opportunity. That’s certainly been Esther’s experience, who joined DFDS after graduation as a management trainee.

“DFDS business is very broad, with ferry and logistics divisions,” she explains.  

“I was attracted to how the placements were structured – four placements of six months across different areas provide an opportunity to learn so much within two years.” 

Those placements have already taken Esther, whose first contact with logistics was working for a construction company in Uganda, to towns and cities across the UK and Ireland. 

“This gives me fresh perspectives on life,” she says, “but, most importantly, helps me meet new people and explore new cities whilst working in a job that has lots to offer.  

“The programme also has development days where I get to meet the larger graduate community while having fun.” 

But it’s not all about exploration. Esther has been benefitting from the kind of personal connections that help build strong skills and lasting careers. 

“Having a dedicated mentor with many years of experience is one of the things I enjoy most about my role. She gives me wisdom from her experience that I need to help me advance.”
