The Group includes some of the most popular automotive brands including Audi, SEAT, ŠKODA, Porsche, Bentley, Lamborghini, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles, and of course, Volkswagen.

At VWFS, we pride ourselves on having a truly distinctive company culture. It’s not what a lot of people expect, because VWFS is an informal, collaborative, really diverse place to be. Of course, we’re professional and ambitious too – but that’s why going beyond expectations really means something to us. We not only go beyond expectations for our customers, but we go beyond expectations for our people too, in the development, opportunities, rewards and work-life balance we offer.

About the placement

From mentoring in local schools to formal presentations to the Board of Management, this is a varied, inspiring 12-month experience that you’ll never forget. Right from the moment you walk through the door, you’ll work alongside other undergrads, build a thriving social network, drive a brand new car and accelerate your own learning.

Whatever your background, whatever your aspirations, we’ll have a placement that suits you. We have between 20-30 placement opportunities across ten business areas:

  • Finance
  • IT
  • Marketing
  • Risk & Governance
  • HR
  • Customer Operations
  • Business Transformation
  • Fleet
  • Legal
  • Digital & Innovation

Whilst on the scheme you will receive a salary of £17,500 per annum plus an excellent benefits package including; the opportunity to have a brand new loan car every six months, 27 days holiday (plus bank holidays), discretionary bonus and access to various lifestyle discounts.

About you

Our people are self-motivated, focused and can deliver the results required to maintain our growth rate. But that’s not all, they also need to share our strategic vision and want to part of a cohesive team who know how to have fun as well as putting in the effort when it really matters.

With an inspirational working environment and all the support you need to thrive, this is your chance to join a close community of like-minded individuals and share in our ambition to make great things happen.

As long as you’re a second year university student, on track to achieving a 2:1 and eligible to work in the UK, our placement opportunities are open to you.
