Nobantu Mqulwana, Director Client Solutions
Johannesburg, South Africa
“If you keep an open mind, there’s a lot to be learned at DSV. The ability to share and reapply what you learn across continents is one of the biggest perks of working for a multinational organisation of this size.”
Nobantu works in South Africa, where she has recently had opportunity to take on a new role working across two different DSV divisions – the DSV Air and Sea division and the DSV Solutions division.
“Focusing more on the Solutions team where I have been spending a lot of time getting through my induction, I’m learning the business from some really smart people and am truly fascinated by some of the amazing things we can do. It’s an environment characterised by a high degree of teamwork and collaboration.”
Philip Eduard, Freight Forwarder trainee
Philip used to work in the restaurant trade, so good customer service is part of his DNA. He completed his freight forwarder training last summer and is looking forward to continuing his career at DSV with all the new challenges and responsibility that entails.
“In DSV, there is a lot of focus on each individual employee. You get so many opportunities once you have completed your training – whether you want to work abroad or take a management course.”
Philip enjoys working in a large business with lots of colleagues. He loves talking to customers and going the extra mile for them by finding the best solution for their needs.
“As a freight forwarder you have colleagues in the office, in the terminals and in the trucks themselves. Everyone has to pull in the same direction, so teamwork and understanding are very important for me. I think I’ve got some really great colleagues, who all want to do their best and help each other.”
