Faith, an assembly planning intern standing next to a green MINI

As part of my degree in Mechanical Engineering I have to do an industrial placement each year. I’ve been lucky to be accepted onto two placements with BMW Group, the first was with the Aftersales Technical Services team at Rolls-Royce, and now with MINI as an Assembly Planner for Structure, Controls and Facility. I had an offer from another business but I’d had such great feedback and development through my first placement I was keen to return to the Group.

I was given autonomy and responsibility from day one. I worked with the technical specialists in a range of activities including looking at vehicle component design and supporting the continuous improvement of our products and services. I evaluated, produced technical documentation and improved service diagnostic tooling both at the software and hardware level. I’ve learned so much and my professional skills and technical capabilities really improved.

There is a real commitment to future mobility here. If you want to be a part of the solution for tomorrow, it’s a great place to be.
