BMW Group Plant Leipzig.

One of our most modern and sustainable plants is located in Leipzig. Here we produce classic vehicles of the BMW 1 Series and 2 Series, as well as – since 2013 – automobiles with electric drive and CFRP lightweight bodies. As Germany's first automobile factory in Leipzig, we’re particularly proud of the fact that we can, to a large extent, work with electricity from our very own four wind turbines.

Success at work and a private life cannot be combined? With us this is definitely possible! We offer our talents flexible working hours right from the beginning. Even during your apprenticeship, you have the opportunity to reduce accrued overtime and thus call it a day earlier. After your apprenticeship, you can expect plenty additional offers to combine your private appointments and needs with your work at the BMW Group – whether it is flexitime, free shifts or a sabbatical – almost anything is possible with us!

Sustainability is one of the utmost important corporate pillars for us - especially in the area of employee health. To ensure that this is not neglected, our talents benefit from the outstanding services of our exclusive and company-related health insurance fund - the BMW BKK. In addition to a strong service, BMW BKK also offers a low contribution rate and many additional benefits - for example, for osteopathy and professional dental cleanings - of over €1,000 per year. This means you save money - and receive services and preventive care far beyond the insurance card.
