Graduate scheme 2017 – Trucks
Not just any graduate scheme
Our graduate roles provide an opportunity to learn about our business and provide opportunities to make a real difference. During the 18 month CAReer programme, you’ll rotate within our UK businesses as well as spending time at the Daimler headquarters in Germany, gaining critical international experience. You’ll spend five months in each of the rotations and three months in Germany, offering plenty of scope to make an impact and gain experience.
During each placement you will get involved in projects and activities that will really add value to the business whilst gaining a real understanding of the area you are working in and how each of the three businesses supports each other. Throughout the scheme you will participate in development activity that takes place in the UK and internationally which will sharpen your commercial skills and enable you to expand your international business network. As a CAReer graduate, you will be visible within the business and your career will be followed keenly by managers and directors in the UK and Germany, some of whom started their journeys at Mercedes-Benz on the very same scheme.
This particular position will work within the business function of Trucks, and will have responsibility for providing detailed and robust analysis of the Truck (Mercedes-Benz & Fuso) vehicles - to include all areas of segmentation (e.g. Industry sector, fleet size, business channel) and to develop/implement the Truck Customer Relationship strategy.
What we are looking for
You’ll have or be predicted a 2.1 degree and 280 UCAS points. You will have experience of working overseas during a placement, and will therefore have a commercially minded approach. Equally important is to be passionate about our brand, have a strong desire to succeed, be proactive, confident and willing to ask lots of questions and challenge thinking. Key to success at Mercedes-Benz is being able to build great relationships and demonstrating your commercial acumen and thinking. If you can demonstrate all of these attributes and you’re seeking a graduate role where you’re a name and not a number, making a real impact on real business challenges, then this could be the scheme for you.

- A permanent contract
- An annual salary of £24k per annum with a 10% annual bonus payable every March
- Heavily discounted Mercedes-Benz leasing scheme
- 23 days holiday per year, plus bank holidays
