Job description


Product Marketing Assistant

One Group. Six brands. Unlimited possibilities.

Who are we?

We're driven by difference. With six big brands under one roof – 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. Whatever drives you – whether it's curiosity, adventure, collaboration or growth – at Volkswagen Group, you'll find a career path that matches your ambitions.

What will you be doing?

We have an exciting opportunity for an undergraduate to join the SKODA team as a Product Marketing Assistant. In this role you'll support the Product Managers to position all SKODA models in the best possible position on the UK market.

In your day to day, you will be responsible for providing detailed reporting and market analysis to aid with new product launches and model performance monitoring, supporting  Product Managers in managing the entire product lifecycle of the SKODA model range. In this busy and varied role, you will receive insights into all aspects of product management including new product development, business justification, planning & forecasting, pricing and marketing – touching base with all central functions across SKODA in the UK. Additionally to the hands on experience in areas such as new car launches into the UK market, you will also work on the maintenance of the web-based car configurator and launch materials.

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 six 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, 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?

To be successful in this team you'll have ambition, a creative vision and a desire to learn. These placements suit Marketing students or general Business Studies students with an aptitude for communication.

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/July 2021. 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 prefer our undergraduates to be based within a 25 mile radius of our Milton Keynes head office.

What's the assessment process?

Once you have hit the apply button, we will send you a Numerical and Verbal reasoning assessment to complete. Upon successful completion of these, we will invite you to complete an online video interview so that we have a chance to get to know you a little more about you. Our final step in the journey would be for you to attend a virtual interview. This process is designed to help us both work out if a placement here is the right step for you.
