Marketing Analyst Placement: You will work within one of the fastest growing departments in our business. Based within the Mobility team, they will be reviewing market data and researching solutions for some of our newest products. You will support in finding different ways for our customers to use our products and cars as the market is now about usership, not ownership.

You will play a vital role in coming up with innovative ways to ensure high performing results.

What we can offer you:

  • Salary of £20,000 per annum plus discretionary bonus and company pension scheme

  • You’ll be joining a group of 49 undergraduates so you’ll have a large group of colleagues so that you can support each other throughout your placement year
  • Life Skills workshops, designed specifically for you as an Undergraduate
  • Access to a discounted loan car scheme
  • Chance to make a difference in the local community with various volunteering opportunities
