DHL Case Study


ALLEN & YORK Successfully Recruit for DHL 

Client/Role Profile 

DHL is the global market leader of the international express and logistics industry, with a network composed of more than 220 countries / territories and 300,000 employees’ worldwide.  The company comprises four operational divisions encompassing freight, mail and supply chain services. 

ALLEN & YORK are leading Health & Safety recruitment specialists, with an international network of professional candidates and clients.  We were therefore delighted when DHL approached us to help fill two technical HSE positions.

Finding the right candidates for these specialised roles had proven to be challenging for DHL and they were unable to fill the positions using local recruitment resources.  The selected candidates would have responsibilities to support senior management and ensure company compliance within all safety and environmental policies and procedures. 

We have over 20 years of knowledge, coupled with an extensive database of highly qualified Health and Safety professionals – our candidate database alone currently holds 200,000 candidates.

The Service 

Using our extensive database, we were immediately able to identify suitable candidates for DHL and narrowed down the search within our network of contacts. This was combined with tapping into existing relationships with individuals within the market to give the best possible coverage and opportunity to reach every relevant candidate.

ALLEN & YORK manage the whole recruitment process for their clients from sifting through CVs, arranging interviews and negotiating offers.

Through this well established database search and networking, Our Health &  Safety recuruitment team quickly identified those individuals with a proven track record, relevant qualifications and an enthusiasm for the role.

The Result

Within just two weeks of been given a very strict criteria, the ALLEN &  YORK Health & Safety Recruitment team were able to provide CV’s that exceeded the criteria set by DHL and two of the candidates were delighted to accept the offers.


“We had very specific competency requirement for our HSE Advisors which could not be met through local recruitment. ALLEN & YORK were provided with 5 'must have' and 5 'desirable' criteria and within 2 weeks provided CVs which were a perfect fit, and two candidates have now accepted roles.  The service provided met and exceeded expectations.”
