Do you have what it takes?

To be a successful Alfred H Knight graduate trainee, we expect you to use every interaction with your work colleagues as an opportunity to learn about the wider business and the unique ‘AHK Family’ culture that we are very proud of.

Responsibility at an early stage of your career and an international assignment may follow shortly after you finish your graduate programme. We need you to be ready to ‘get stuck in’ and get your hands dirty as some of our offices are in remote locations.
