Undergraduate placements

Each year across the entire Volkswagen Group in the UK we offer students the opportunity to join us for 12 months and carry out a real job within our business. These roles include placements in Marketing, Business Analytics/Planning or Finance related roles.

We will give you the opportunity to use your year in our industry to its fullest potential – to really immerse yourself in our business and to add value from day one. You’ll gain a wealth of experience that will be applicable to both your studies and to your career post-graduation.

The scheme is open to any student at a UK university who is eligible to work full-time in the UK. Students should be on a sandwich degree or course that offers a one year industrial placement. We are looking for strong academic achievements of course, but we also want well-rounded ambitious people with plenty of motivation and a 'can-do' attitude.

Graduate Scheme 2016 (Volkswagen Group UK)

The Volkswagen Group graduate programme is no ordinary graduate scheme. It’s challenging, it’s varied, and it’s relentlessly fast-paced. It’s an exciting and evolving business environment for people who want a career defined by doing something different. At Volkswagen Group, thinking differently is the key to success, not a passion for cars. The possibilities are endless, so no two graduates will have the same experience. Don’t expect petrol heads (although we do have some) and don’t expect limits. Expect challenge, expect opportunity – expect different.

Applications for our 2016 graduate intake are now closed although you can visit our graduate website for information on our programme:


The SEAT Advanced Apprenticeship Programme forms a key part of our drive to ensure the European motor vehicle industry has a skilled and technically proficient workforce. It is only through such a commitment to employing the best people that we can make sure our customers continue to enjoy an excellent service.

Very few industries can rival the motor trade for the variety of challenges and rewards it offers. Likewise, very few employers can rival SEAT. The long term opportunities we offer range across Technical, Logistics, Distribution, Management, Administration, Sales and Marketing disciplines. Each discipline demands a well-trained workforce committed to life-long learning.

A place on The SEAT Advanced Apprenticeship Programme will help put you on the road to a satisfying career in the retail motor vehicle industry.
