Here’s what some of our recent graduates have to say about their experience on the Graduate Program.
Dennis Lo, Fleet Controller – Fuels, Resources & Industrial
Bachelor of Accounting and Finance, Masters of Supply Chain
I started the Linfox Graduate Program with a rotation in Retail Operations. You’re encouraged to make the most of your opportunities, and from early on I supervised a team of drivers and helped to implement a new business initiative.
I enjoyed this operational experience for many reasons, but most of all for the customer interaction. It gave me a great foundation for my development within the program. My next rotation was with the finance and commercial team with our Resources and Industrial business unit. This was particularly interesting as the business unit has recently been awarded a number of new contracts with fuels customers.
The experience I gained through the program was invaluable, and helped me to land my current role as Fleet Controller within Resources and Industrial, where I oversee the operations for one of our fuels customers and manage a team of drivers.
Tina Dreher, Optimisation Analyst - Linehaul
Qualifications - Bachelor of Business – Human Resources and Econometrics
I wasn’t sure if I wanted to work in logistics but the Linfox Graduate Program seemed really interesting and offered a lot of variation; every day would be different.
From my first rotation in Retail Transport, I knew I wanted to work with a dynamic transport operation. When I was offered the opportunity to complete my final rotation in Darwin as part of the Linehaul Transport Operations team, I was thrilled. Living away from home and working in a different environment allowed me to develop my skills in contingency management, while facing operational challenges unique to the Northern Territory.
The exposure I received to both Retail and Linehaul Transport Operations throughout the program allowed me to combine operational knowledge with the skills gained from my degree.
These experiences led me to my current role at Linehaul West Melbourne as Customer Optimisation Analyst where the strong customer and operational focus completely complements my experience and analytical abilities.
Emily Reuter, Commercial Analyst - Retail
Bachelor of International Business
One of the first things I noticed when I joined the Linfox Graduate Program is that you really feel like you are a part of the team.
The program is all about getting involved in different operations. I was lucky enough to have three hands-on rotations in Warehousing, Transport and Commercial/Finance contracts.
I was able to draw on the knowledge acquired during my degree and gain experience in the end to end operations of a chilled warehouse and a transport site that services over 200 stores daily. I had exposure to the site’s daily operations including load planning, customer interaction and negotiation, budgeting, weekly financial reporting and driver safety.
In my final rotation within a Retail Transport operation I was given the opportunity to work alongside senior members on a tender submission for an interstate Retail Transport contract, which paved the way to my current role as a Commercial Analyst within Retail.
As a graduate, it can feel like there is so much to learn. We provide the support and development needed to start and successfully continue your journey as a graduate.
Graduates are provided with a two-year comprehensive development plan which incorporates the core operational skills graduates develop throughout each rotation. Both structured and on-the-job learning is offered through a variety of mediums and ensures the continuous growth of our graduates.
As a graduate you will attend four professional development Melbourne based conferences over the two-year program. These conferences are a great opportunity to network with your graduate cohort from across Australia and New Zealand and continue to build on your business knowledge.
Linfox offers its own Linfox College for employees. With 24/7 access to an online learning portal for soft skill development, learners can access over 400 modules focusing on topics such as leadership, communication, coaching and mentoring, desktop applications and operations.

Let’s face it, not everyone is suited to work in our environment, so our process is all about giving you as much information as we can, to make sure you are making the right decision about joining our Graduate Program and vice versa.
We want people who have:
- A genuine interest in transport and logistics
- Strong interpersonal and communication skills
- Leadership potential
- The ability to think on their feet
- Strong analytical and problem solving skills
We recruit graduates from all disciplines. For us, it’s about having the passion to work in the logistics industry.
The application process is very simple:
Step 1: Visit our job opportunities page at www.linfox.com and register so you can complete the online application and submit a copy of your CV.
Step 2: If you’re successful we will invite you to attend a group assessment which gives us the opportunity to provide you with further insights into our program and organisation. You will also take part in group activities and get the chance to listen to one of our current graduates tell it like it is!
Step 3: Have you have ever been into a warehouse or visited a transport yard? If we think you may be right for our program, you will be invited to attend a site visit and chat with one of our site or operational managers. This gives you the chance to see just what the working environment is like. We have sites that employee four employees, to over 600 employees. It’s a real eye opener and helps you decide if we are right for you.
Step 4: A behavioural interview is held with a senior leadership team member, during which you will be asked several behavioural questions in line with our values. Our values are important to us and are embedded in our day to day operations at every site.
Step 5: If you are successful in the behavioural interview, we will complete two reference checks.
Step 6: The last stage in our process is a meeting with one of our executives, we call them Presidents here at Linfox and this is a great opportunity for you to ask questions. If all is well, we will then make you an offer.
