Developed alongside the company’s graduate schemes in Munich, BMW’s UK graduate programme is looking for applicants in variety of areas ranging from engineering and finance to business and IT with eight based at the Oxford Mini plant, four at the firm’s pressings plant in Swindon and one at the Hams Hall engine plant near Birmingham.
Starting in October 2014 the programme will last for 24 months during which graduates will complete five different placements on various strategic and operational projects that will allow them to gain an insight into business process, strategy and culture from both a UK and global perspective.
Recruitment manager Holly Chalmers, who joined the company 25 years ago on a training scheme and has worked across a variety of HR disciplines and BMW Group sites during her career, welcomed the new scheme. “Investment in young people has long been a key part of our development strategy for the plant and we are looking forward to recruiting talented young people who have a passion for the motor industry,” she said.
