LKQ Euro Car Parts launches graduate programme

LKQ Euro Car Parts

Tamworth-based LKQ Euro Car Parts has launched its first ever finance graduate scheme to create new pathways for young people looking to begin their career in the automotive industry.

The aftermarket specialist is recruiting for three new graduate positions in its finance team. Successful candidates will enrol on a three-year programme where they’ll be supported and funded to gain CIMA/ACCA accredited accountancy qualifications.

The graduates will also be allocated a personal mentor to oversee their progress, as well as being sponsored by the director of commercial finance and financial planning and analysis (FP&A) Melanie Lowe.

Applications are open now and elected applicants will be invited to an assessment day on December 14 at LKQ Euro Car Parts’ HQ and central distribution centre in Birch Coppice Business Park.

The launch of the finance graduate scheme follows the success of the business’s fiinance internship programme, where three students from Aston University joined the finance department as a part of their industrial placement year.

Annick Jourdenais, chief financial officer at LKQ Euro Car Parts said: “Recruiting and nurturing young talent is one of our top priorities. Not only does it allow us to tackle the growing skills gap in the sector, but it helps us diversify our recruitment pool, which filters upwards to produce a more representative workforce.

“Our new graduate scheme creates space for more young people to pursue a fulfilling career in Finance and to excel in the automotive industry. We’re excited to hear from applicants about the value and fresh perspectives that they can bring to our business and the wider industry.”
