Corporate Affairs Graduate Scheme
Corporate Affairs is a varied role, where you will have the opportunity to work with both the General Affairs team and Production Control team, based at our Engine Manufacturing site at Deeside. This will enable you to work in a range of areas, allowing you to gain experience across multiple divisions and get a feel for the business as a whole.
Over the two-year scheme you will be involved in a variety of projects, which may include benchmarking benefits, cost & productivity analysis, supply chain management, shaping learning and development initiatives and industrial relations. Whatever you are working on, it will stretch your problem solving skills and introduce you to people at all levels. It will be a challenging scheme consistently testing your abilities and capabilities, but equally there is plenty of support from your mentor, section manager, and colleagues. There will be training to equip you with transferable commercial skills and you will also get a wide feel for the organisation.
Departments in which you may work involve:
- Employee Relations
- Organisation planning
- Cost Management
- External Affairs
- Health and Safety
- Logistics (Business Operations Management)
Learning and Development:
We place great emphasis on learning by doing - usually through structured, on-the-job training. So, over the course of our programme, you'll find yourself tackling live projects and taking on real responsibilities in your chosen field. Our graduate programme lasts just over 2 years, it is assessed and designed to help you reach the standard needed to move into a specialist position at the end of the programme.
All graduates will take part in six weeks of line training. This will mean that for those six weeks you will work on an area where we build the cars down on the shop floor. Although tough, this experience is extremely rewarding and interesting and gives you a real hands-on insight into what Toyota Manufacturing is all about. We believe this experience is crucial for your personal development and rather unique to our company.
What we look for:
We are looking for flexible candidates who are self-motivated and good team players, but are also able to take ownership for projects. We want individuals to share our values, and beliefs that there's always a better way. So, if you thrive on analysing problems from different angles to develop solutions and take a practical approach to your work, you could go a long way with us. You should also have a consistently strong academic record, with a minimum 2:1 predicted/recently achieved at degree level. (Psychology/Business related degrees are preferred).
