STUDENTS. Get hands-on with a placement at BMW Group.

Our placements are now open for applications.

The closing date is 29th November 2019, but please be aware that we work on a rolling recruitment basis, meaning we employ good candidates as they apply rather than waiting for the end of the application period. Opportunities can go quickly, so get your application in early.


Are you currently studying for your Bachelor’s degree? Become a placement student at BMW Group and you’ll be able to complement your studies with invaluable real-life work experience.

At BMW Group, we know that a good placement is never hands-off. We believe in creating an environment where our students can learn by doing during their time with us and where they are given their own areas of responsibilities from the start. Our experts will treat you as part of the team from day one, encourage you to bring your own ideas to the table – and give you the chance to show what you can do.

We offer placements for third year students who want to increase their knowledge of technology, business processes and corporate culture. As a placement student you'll have the chance to develop valuable teamwork skills, build up a network of professional contacts and gain insights into the different job areas within BMW Group. Our placements run for 6 to 12 months and require students to be on track to achieve a 2:1 or 1st class degree.

For outstanding placement students who are serious about developing their career, we can also offer the Speed-Up programme, which is available at selected sites. As a successful candidate, you’ll have access to dedicated training and a mentor, you’ll receive attractive financial support, and you’ll have to opportunity to come back to the business when you complete your studies.
