Pendragon has launched a new graduate programme based at its Nottingham offices.
It says the head office graduate programme is a opportunity to play a key role in the running of a multi-million-pound business, whether that be managing used car stock of over 20,000 vehicles, planning a new digital campaign to target millions of potential customers or recruiting new faces into their 9,000-strong team member base.
Open to applicants who are degree qualified with at least a 2:1 award in a relevant subject, the areas of specialism include marketing, HR and operations, which covers projects, business development, stock and finance.
The aim is for each graduate to progress to a leader or specialist position within 18 months of starting.
Graduates will work across one department and cover executive assistant duties and analysis, whilst reporting to their mentor, who will be available for support throughout the programme. In addition, graduates can expect to attend leadership meetings and work on project-based tasks.
Graduates will also receive dedicated training at the Pendragon training academy twice a year and attend a graduate conference to celebrate success with various leaders in the business.
Pendragon's HR director Jo Moxon (pictured) said:“The Head Office graduate programme is an exciting opportunity for any graduate who wishes to embark on an exciting career in the automotive industry.
“All successful candidates will be supported by an experienced mentor and will have access to fantastic training and resources, so they can develop their skills within their chosen field.
“We look forward to receiving applications from resilient and determined graduates, who have strong commercial awareness and are ready to take the next step in developing their career.”
