Kia UK Limited profile

About Kia

If one thing above all else characterises Kia’s story, it’s growth. From its foundation as Korea’s first car manufacturer, Kia has become one of the fastest growing automotive brands in the world. With record annual sales for the past seven years in the UK alone, our development is set to continue.

A global business employing almost 47,000 people, we continue to drive innovation as we create outstanding vehicles that continue to win awards, making them best in class in terms of quality and safety. But we don’t just aim to create better vehicles, we aim to create a better world too. We recently handed over a new school and healthcare centre to local communities in Tanzania and Malawi.

We have seven placement opportunities starting in July and lasting for a year, all based at our Walton-on-Thames HQ and offering a salary of £17,000, plus benefits (including a company car after three months).

Doing real work that makes a positive difference, you'll be ambitious, confident, motivated and keen to learn. In return, we’ll give you every opportunity to develop your skills and explore where your future career could go. You will have broad exposure across the business and find out what it takes to drive Kia UK’s ongoing success. Away from the office, you will enjoy a range of activities including away days, a fabulous summer event and you could also be part of high-profile industry award events.
