Over twelve months, your placement will challenge, inspire and develop you, using a combination of structured learning and on-the-job experience. To make sure we give you the opportunities and exposure you need to grow, we’ll examine your application closely before aligning you to a business area that suits your skills and interests. We’ll then focus on giving you the support you need to progress and, at the end of the process, be considered for a place on our Graduate programme.
Once you’ve joined us, you’ll be partnered with a buddy, attend regular meeting with your managers and shadow other departments. This will allow you to enhance your strengths, as well as identifying and filling in any gaps in your knowledge. We actively encourage our Undergraduates to be proactive and explore our business – if you want to try new things, we’ll always listen and do our best to meet your needs.
During your time here, you’ll also be involved in group projects. These will put you at the heart of the Volkswagen Group UK, showing you what it takes to keep one of the UK’s leading businesses running. You’ll receive regular reviews, every three months, which will help you to track, manage and improve your performance. And you’ll study specific training modules – including Presentation Skills and Commercial Awareness – which will give you the all-round understanding you need to succeed in a Graduate role.
