Mercedes-Benz Top Talent Graduate scheme 2017

In 2015 Mercedes-Benz in the UK saw record breaking sales figures. We're on course to beat this record again in 2016 as we continue to introduce innovation, quality and style to the automotive market. We're looking for talented graduates to join us as we to continue to drive our business forward.

About Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz produces some of the most iconic and luxurious Passengers Cars in the world as well as leading edge and fuel efficient Vans and Trucks. We're a part of the Daimler Group of Companies and we're split into three different businesses:

  • Mercedes-Benz in the UK (MBUK)
  • Mercedes-Benz Financial Services (MBFS)
  • Mercedes-Benz Retail Group (MBRG)

With its head office in Milton Keynes, MBUK is the sales and marketing organisation responsible for all MB products in the UK including Passengers Cars, Vans and Trucks as well as the smart brand. We market and sell our vehicles to fleets and retailers supported by an on-going customer service plan. Based in Milton Keynes, MBFS provides financial services to enable companies and individuals to fund and insure their vehicles. MBRG are our wholly owned retail outlets that sell and service Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars and Vans. These outlets are located across North and South London.

Not just any graduate scheme

Our graduate roles provide an opportunity to learn about our business and provide opportunities to make a real difference. During the 18 month CAReer programme, you'll rotate within our UK businesses as well as spending time at the Daimler headquarters in Germany, gaining critical international experience. You'll spend five months in each of the rotations and three months in Germany, offering plenty of scope to make an impact and gain experience.

During each placement you will get involved in projects and activities that will really add value to the business whilst gaining a real understanding of the area you are working in and how each of the three businesses supports each other. Throughout the scheme you will participate in development activity that takes place in the UK and internationally which will sharpen your commercial skills and enable you to expand your international business network. As a CAReer graduate, you will be visible within the business and your career will be followed keenly by managers and directors in the UK and Germany, some of whom started their journeys at Mercedes-Benz on the very same scheme.

What we are looking for

You'll have or be predicted a 2.1 degree and 280 UCAS points. You will have experience of working overseas during a placement, and will therefore have a commercially minded approach. Equally important is to be passionate about our brand, have a strong desire to succeed, be proactive, confident and willing to ask lots of questions and challenge thinking. Key to success at Mercedes-Benz is being able to build great relationships and demonstrating your commercial acumen and thinking. If you can demonstrate all of these attributes and you're seeking a graduate role where you're a name and not a number, making a real impact on real business challenges, then this could be the scheme for you.
