‘The graduate programme gave me a variety of experiences across different areas of the business and even included a placement in Munich. After a year on the scheme, during a review with my manager, we discussed opportunities for potential permanent positions in my final 6 months as a graduate.’
OPEN NEW DOORS
Over the course of the programme, you will become explorers of possibility by working on assignments in other functions, at least one of which will be outside your home department. You may also have the chance to work internationally at one of our regional offices or within the wider BMW Group, intensifying your knowledge of the industry even further.
