Five different automotive brands. Group Functions. Trade specialists. VWG UK has a unique culture, built on diversity, difference and a friendly rivalry that inspires us all. Across our brands, we learn from each other, encourage each other and regularly challenge each other to think differently. Career journeys can take many twists and turns, moving across larger and smaller brands, into project work or even onto a global level within the wider Group. How your career develops is up to you. We’re just here to support you, encourage you and give you the training you need to fulfil your potential and achieve your goals.
Volkswagen Group UK is wholly owned by the Volkswagen AG: one of the most successful automotive manufacturers in the world, with some of the most iconic brands that the industry has ever seen. But we’re also a great Sales & Marketing operation in our own right. We have over 900 employees and a network of more than 1,000 dealerships in the UK. Operating out of Milton Keynes, Volkswagen Group UK sells half a million vehicles every year. In fact, one in every five cars sold in the UK is a Volkswagen Group brand.
However, what really sets us apart is how we work – not how many vehicles we sell. Volkswagen Group UK is a commercially astute, nimble, customer-focused operation. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time.
We are passionate about brands, about the automotive industry and about delivering great customer experiences. But at the same time, we’ve all got a life outside work too. We’re flexible with working arrangements so that our people can maintain a work-life balance that suits them. We also offer a flexible benefits package, so that you can tailor your benefits to meet your individual needs.
