Job DescriptionWhat you'll do
The exact scope of what you'll achieve will depend on where your placements take you. If you join Value Improvement, for example, you'll develop an understanding of what drives the cost of the parts we buy, and use that to maximise the value of our spend. That will mean learning about manufacturing processes and cost modelling, and developing an ability to read engineering drawings.
Or if you take on a Buying role, you're likely to be responsible for a group of suppliers. Either way, you can expect to develop negotiation and supplier management skills, to influence commodity strategy and to work across functions to deliver goals. Wherever you work, you'll take real ownership of your projects and be accountable for their successful delivery.
The Successful ApplicantWhat you'll need
We're looking for people with an affinity for business you'll be keen to develop your business knowledge by working with external companies. You'll also need great communication skills developed through well-rounded life experience - academically, socially and in any previous work situations.

You should also be on course to achieve at least a 2:1 degree, or a comparable qualification. Flexibility is important too, as you could be based at any of our sites. Ambitious and driven, you'll be excited about the fact that this internship could lead to a place on our graduate programme.
