About HIVED 📦

The world needs logistics solutions that are better for people and the environment. That’s where HIVED comes in. We are a London-based climate and logistics start-up building the first-ever sustainable parcel delivery network at scale, now shipping for over 100 brands including ASOS, Minor Figures, Allpress, Pip & Nut and more. A tech company at heart, we have built a modern tech stack and intelligent routing, and are massively innovative in a traditional industry.

All of this means businesses can get sustainable deliveries with better service at more affordable prices. It’s parcel delivery reimagined; better all around for everyone, from start to end, warehouse to doorstep.

Our tight-knit team is made up of ex-Revolut, Bain, GoPuff, ASOS, Apple, Amazon and Hello Fresh employees, and we are backed by some of Europe's leading investors and VCs in climate-tech, logistics and mobility including Maersk Growth, Pale Blue Dot VC, Eka Ventures, the British government and more.

Role Overview 📝

We are looking for exceptionally ambitious and talented recent graduates who are looking to kick start their career in the London startup and operations world. As a Graduate Operations Executive, you will play a critical role in working across all daily operations at HIVED and ensuring the success of our deliveries at scale. You’ll have the opportunity to see firsthand how we are building one of the fastest growing startups in Europe and contribute to the overall success of the company.

This is a 12 month rotational programme across all areas of operations at HIVED. You will spend time across the Dispatch, Customer Service and Depot Operations teams and become an expert in how we run our operations. If successful, you will have the opportunity of remaining within your chosen operations team or moving into a wider team at HIVED.

The ideal candidate is someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment and gets energy from solving operational problems. You will need to be able to work under pressure, show tenacity and take on any kind of challenge thrown your way.

You’ll get to work alongside an extremely talented team who have scaled companies such as Revolut, HelloFresh, Gousto, Google, Amazon, and more to get an unfiltered view of what it takes to build the next mass-market parcel delivery network.
