Undergraduate placements

Who are we?

One group. Five brands. Unlimited possibilities.

We’re driven by difference. With five globally recognised brands under one roof – Audi, SEAT, Volkswagen, ŠKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles - each with its own history, designs and inventions – we’ve created some of the world’s most iconic vehicles, from luxury sports cars to family camper vans. Here, you’ll discover opportunities, explore ideas and tackle challenges that you won’t find anywhere else.

Where can you work?

Our placements give you the chance to choose a real role that matches your specific interests and aspirations.

We have thirty-nine opportunities in six business areas:

  • Marketing & Communications
  • HR
  • Finance
  • IT
  • Operations & Support
  • Business Performance Analytics

What will you be doing?

What are you driven by? Whether it’s numbers or strategy, marketing or technology, our Undergraduate Placement will let you test your skills, work in real business roles on key projects, and turn your knowledge and passion into real-world, value-adding impact.

On our twelve-month placement, you’ll immerse yourself in one of our five very different brands and business functions, and develop specialist expertise in your chosen area. At the same time, you’ll do important work, put forward ideas, and collaborate with senior leaders and participate in high-profile projects.

What’s in it for you?

As an undergraduate on one of our placements, you’ll receive a £17,500 salary, as well as a new car every four months (as long as you have a full, clean UK driving licence). You’ll receive 27 days’ holiday – plus bank holidays – a discretionary bonus, an award-winning pension scheme, flexible benefits allowance, employee well-being support, an on-site restaurant and shopping discounts. Upon completion, you’ll also have the opportunity to be considered for our Graduate Programme.

What do you need?

Our placement is open to any student at a UK university who is eligible to work full-time in the UK for twelve months from June 2018. You should be on a sandwich degree or course which offers a one-year industrial placement. We have a duty of care to our people and wouldn't want you to spend a large amount of time commuting, so we require undergraduates to be based within a 20 mile radius of our Milton Keynes head office.

Graduate Placements

Ready to take the lead?

It takes courage to challenge the ordinary. We’re looking for a group of exceptional Graduates who’ve got the confidence, ambition and ability to become future leaders of the Volkswagen Group UK.

Who are we?

One group. Five brands. Unlimited possibilities.

We’re driven by difference. With five globally recognised brands under one roof – Audi, Volkswagen, SEAT, ŠKODA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles – each with its own history, designs and inventions – we’ve created some of the world’s most iconic vehicles, from luxury sports cars to family camper vans. Here, you’ll discover opportunities, explore ideas and tackle challenges that you won’t find anywhere else.

What does the programme look like?

This structured two-year programme will give you the experience, training and knowledge you need to become an industry expert. From digital marketing to planning and analysis, the placements you’ll work on are as rigorous as they are varied. You’ll be given projects with business-critical impact from the outset, and we’ll encourage you to suggest your own initiatives. When you complete the programme, you’ll have worked with five brands, built unparalleled industry knowledge and gained experience in roles you may never previously have considered. You’ll know how a fast-paced, commercial business works – but you’ll also know how to influence it. Whatever you want to do next, you’ll be guaranteed a permanent role with us when you finish.

What’s in it for you?

As a Graduate, you’ll start on a £30,000 salary and get a new car worth approximately £25,000 every four months (as long as you have a full, clean UK driving licence). You’ll also receive 27 days’ holiday – plus bank holidays – a discretionary bonus, an award-winning pension scheme, a range of flexible benefits, employee well-being support, an on-site restaurant and shopping discounts.

What do you need?

We’re all driven by different things. What matters is that you’re just that: driven. We’re looking for people with the energy and determination to pursue a successful, long-term career, and who seek out opportunities to learn, develop and take responsibility. If you share that desire, you’re the kind of person we want to work with.

You’ll need to be working towards at least a 2.1 degree (of any discipline). As well as your qualifications, we look for relevant work experience, ambition and a determination to succeed. You’ll also need to have the right to work in the UK.
