About BMW Group

No need to predict the future. You can create it. 

At the BMW Group, we’re committed to creating an environment where our people can learn from others and teach others. Here, our industry-leading experts will treat you as part of the team from day one and give you every opportunity to really show what you can do.

We look for passionate people, from all backgrounds, who will benefit from exploring every opportunity we have to offer; all while showing curiosity and ambition.

We also believe in giving people the skills and experience they need to thrive. That’s why we welcome around 200 individuals on six or 12-month placements each year, within a wide range of business areas.

Ultimately, our aim is to make sure everyone can succeed and reach their true potential. We want to create a truly diverse, inclusive workplace, with recent investments in new ideas and initiatives helping to make our vision a reality. 

Who we are and what we do

As a global company, we employ over 120,000 Associates worldwide, operate 31 production and assembly facilities in 15 countries, and have a global sales network in more than 140 countries.

With so many facilities, specialities, and opportunities across the UK and further afield, the BMW Group is an inclusive and empowering place to be. Here you can progress, grow your mindset, and take your first steps into a fulfilling, worthwhile career.   

Our four key brands of BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and BMW Motorrad make us the world’s leading manufacturer of premium automobiles and motorcycles. We also provide premium financial and mobility services.

The UK is the only place in the world where BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars are represented by both business and manufacturing operations. You could join us at any of our manufacturing sites in Oxford, Hams Hall, Swindon, or Goodwood, or be based at our Farnborough offices, where we host the UK Sales and Marketing subsidiary of BMW AG, as well as Financial Services, Leasing and Fleet Management departments.

We employ around 8,000 people directly in the UK, with an additional 16,000 people employed by our third-party Retailer Network. We also value everyone’s input – regardless of their role within the business or their level of seniority.

Looking ahead to the future

When it comes to taking responsibility across the entire product lifecycle, the BMW Group is a pioneer in the automotive industry. We strive to make a difference wherever and however we can. And, by accepting our responsibility, we will increase our long-term success as a high-end carmaker – because in the future, quality and sustainability will be more inseparable than ever. For us, sustainability manifests itself in what we do. That’s why we report on our progress honestly and transparently every year.

We know innovation isn’t limited to technology. We’re exploring and investing in new ideas to build a workplace that embraces diversity and fosters inclusivity, so that anyone from any background can succeed and reach their potential. We’ve already been recognised for the progress we’re making, being awarded the ENEI Silver Talent Inclusion & Diversity Evaluation (TIDE) Award.

Together, we’re improving lives and helping our communities, supporting a variety of fantastic charities and projects, including CALM and Community Matters.

So, bring your courage, jump right in, and apply now.
