You could be working in Sales, Marketing, Product teams, HR, Finance, Purchasing or the Projects team on a 3 month placement.

What is a Business Year in Industry Scheme like?

Whichever placement you are in, you’ll be assured of the chance to solve complex problems and you will have the opportunity to be involved in community based and education STEM activities, and become a registered STEM Ambassador. You could also follow-up on the programme with a further summer placement and if you really excel, we operate a conditional offer process; for the highest performing placement students who are fast tracked to our graduate scheme once you graduate with a 2:1 or above

Bit by bit, you’ll learn what the JCB “culture of continuous improvement” means in practice and, by the end of the programme, you’ll be one of the people driving that culture with the work you do.

About you

You’ll currently be on track for a 2:1 or higher in your Business related degree. What’s more, you’ll be motivated, tenacious and driven by a desire to get things done in a fast-paced environment. You will have at least one further year of study following the internship. What's certain is that, if you’re not already located near to Staffordshire, you’ll be willing to relocate here for the year.

The rewards you deserve

This is your chance to join a company that values expertise, not only in rewards but also in real employee care. On a JCB Early Careers Scheme you don’t just get a competitive salary, 33 days’ holiday, and access to our company pension—you can also benefit from using our onsite gym, in-house doctor, dentist and visiting optician, as well as a comprehensive training programme including residential outdoor development.
