One in every five cars sold in the UK is made by Volkswagen Group. When you take a look at our brands - Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT, SKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles - that's no surprise. There's a legacy of iconic vehicles like the Beetle, the Audi quattro and the Volkswagen Camper Van that few can match. But what may surprise you is the sheer variety of opportunities this offers you on our graduate programme. If you're prepared to test your skills and prove your abilities in a vibrant, diverse and fast-moving business, you can take your career beyond your expectations. Life here is far from ordinary - full of unexpected challenges, high levels of responsibilities and fantastic rewards. From managing £multi-million media campaigns, to launching a new car to the world's press, or even the chance to work overseas, you'll gain a broad range of experiences that will be the launchpad for an exciting and rewarding career.
This challenging two-year programme will push you beyond your comfort zone to give you an all-round grasp of our business. From being seen as a brand representative, to checking the fine details of financial reporting, you could be getting to grips with marketing campaigns, sales figures and technical advances across three placements. Spending time with a retailer will also see you perform in front our most important audience - the customer. This is how you'll build a deep knowledge of all the commercial aspects of a world-class business. As you prove yourself through live projects and hands-on experience, you'll enhance your personal and professional skills with structured learning and development. You’ll be assigned a mentor, receive a comprehensive induction into each of our business areas and feel part of a supportive graduate network. It's the best possible preparation for a career that could be offering you more than you could ever imagine.
