DHL Express looks to recruit 300 workers

DHL Express is looking to recruit 300 workers at its principal hub and gateway at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport (CVG). Applicants are invited to DHL’s hub to apply for available international service agent positions in package sort, ground and ramp operations. DHL Express expects to hire 200 workers this month at its hub, continuing recruitment efforts in July to hire an additional 100.

“Significant positive trends in package volumes coupled with a need to keep our hub operation adequately staffed for peak shipping periods has opened up hundreds of opportunities for local workers,” said Michael Munn, vice president of human resources for DHL Express. “Most of the available positions are part-time and represent opportunities for future advancement within DHL Express.”

All part-time DHL Express employees at CVG are eligible for company benefits, including a recently enhanced tuition assistance programme. The DHL Express hub at CVG serves as DHL’s central hub for the Americas region, employing approximately 550 full-time and 990 part-time employees.
