At the BMW Group, we’re conscious of the role we play in a sustainable future for society. Sustainability is firmly embedded to our corporate strategy and culture. To us, it’s not just about making more efficient cars, we’ve set new benchmarks for our emissions across the whole production line, our goal is to decrease the amount of energy consumption per vehicle produced and increasing the amount of energy we use from renewable sources. As part of our corporate social responsibility, we support numerous charities and community projects, including the Alzheimer’s Society and Community Matters.

To ensure we continually develop our workforce, each year we welcome over 200 students on to 6 or 12 month placements within a wide range of business areas. We look for passionate students with team spirit and personal initiative, as well as an uncompromising desire to constantly develop their knowledge.

At the BMW Group, we believe in creating an environment where our interns can learn by doing and where they are given their own areas of responsibilities from the start. That’s why our experts will treat you as part of the team from day one and give you the opportunity to really show what you can do.

So if you share our passion for future premium mobility solutions, join our team.
