BMW Group profile

About BMW Group

With our four brands BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and BMW Motorrad, we are the world’s leading manufacturer of premium automobiles and motorcycles. We also provide premium financial and mobility services.

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.

The UK is the only place in the world where three of our brands - BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars - are represented by manufacturing operations. In addition to our manufacturing sites located in Oxford, Hams Hall, Swindon and Goodwood, our Farnborough offices host our UK Sales and Marketing divisions, 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 through our Retailer network.

When it comes to taking responsibility across the product lifecycle, the BMW Group is a pioneer in the automotive industry. By accepting our responsibility, we will increase our long-term success as a premium carmaker – because in the future, premium and sustainability will be more inseparable than ever. What’s more, we are happy to be gauged by our performance, that’s why we report on our progress honestly and transparently every year. For us, sustainability manifests itself in what we do.

BMW Group’s innovative spirit isn’t limited to technology either. We’re always exploring and investing in new ideas to build a workplace that embraces diversity and fosters inclusivity. We’re taking great steps to ensure people from any background can succeed and reach their potential. We’ve already been recognised for the progress we’re making, being awarded the ENEI Bronze Talent Inclusion & Diversity Evaluation (TIDE) Award.

Together, we’re improving lives and helping our communities too, supporting a variety of fantastic charities and projects, including the Alzheimer’s Society and Community Matters.

We believe in giving people the skills and experience to thrive, so each year we welcome around 200 students on 6 or 12 month placements within a wide range of business areas. We look for passionate students from all backgrounds, who will benefit from exploring every opportunity on offer, showing curiosity and a relentless desire to learn.

At the BMW Group, we’re committed to 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 want to start your career right now and discover how much you can achieve, apply today and you can go anywhere.
