Having run a successful graduate scheme throughout our automotive dealerships nationwide, we are pleased to be launching a new central graduate programme, designed to kick start the careers of budding graduates with a variety of specialisms.
Based at our head office in Nottinghamshire, our Head Office Graduate Programme is a fantastic opportunity to play a key role in our multi-million pound business. Depending on their chosen department, graduates can get to grips with managing used car stock of over 20,000 vehicles, planning a digital campaign to target millions of potential customers or recruit new faces into our 9,000 strong team member base.
The new scheme is open to applicants who are degree qualified with at least a 2:1 award in a relevant subject. Opportunities are up for grabs in Marketing, HR and Operations, which includes Business Development, Stock and Finance. We aim for each graduate to progress to a leader or specialist position within 18 months of starting with us.
Our graduates on the Head Office Programme with work across one department and cover executive assistant duties and analysis, whilst reporting to their mentor, who will be available for support throughout the programme. Graduates can also expect to attend leadership meetings and work on project-based tasks.
Graduates will also receive dedicated training at our Training Academy twice a year and attend a Graduate Conference to celebrate success with various leaders in the business.
