International Pricing Placement

We are looking for a confident and eager to learn undergraduate student to complete a 13 month internship with us. You will be working in the Parts Pricing environment of Aftersales for Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and you will be supporting the Pricing Manager. You will be exposed to all aspects of pricing management and pricing structure within the Rolls-Royce Ownership Services Department. This will involve working with everything that influences the prices of our spare parts: currency fluctuations, transport fees, customer demands, current market situations, and many more. You will also have the opportunity to contribute and potentially implement ideas and improvements that would positively influence our profit margins.

You will be working with marketing, service, warranty, and business steering, but you will be also acting as the point of contact for the dealer network, area managers, and both internal and external partners.

You as the student will be a vital asset to support the team in the analysis, planning, and implementation of ideas to improve the pricing process. We continuously work on reshaping and improving the existing pricing process, so you will have an opportunity to be a key person in this project. You will also be welcome to contribute and potentially implement your own ideas and improvements to shape the future pricing process in our Pricing Management area.

If you'd like to be part of an enthusiastic team that is always striving for improving the status quo, feel comfortable working in an office environment, and have a strong desire to deliver the best customer service, then this is the ideal place for you to learn and be part of our Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Pricing Team.
