Type of opportunity:
Engineering at Toyota isn’t about nuts and bolts. It’s much more about having imagination plus the dedication to keep developing the best processes and products.
We encourage our engineers to look at things from every angle to find better ways of working. That’s always been the Toyota Way – as our founder Sakichi Toyoda put it: “Inspiration comes from many places. We need to have our eyes, our minds and our hearts open to things we interact with every day, so open your window to the world.” You can see that commitment reflected in cars like the Auris Hybrid. It’s what makes Toyota an outstanding place to work for inquisitive and ambitious engineers.
The Toyota Way means that continuous improvement and respect for people are hard-wired into our culture. We're always looking for ways to improve - and that extends to your development.
Over the 11 month placement, you will be given training to sharpen and enhance your skills, while receiving regular feedback on how you are progressing. At the end of your Industrial Placement, you'll present to senior managers on your projects to demonstrate how you've added value to Toyota.
Previous IP students say it's an invaluable experience; it clarifies what you want from a career and helps you in your vital final-year. Impress us and you could be invited back to join our full graduate training programme.
We're looking for individuals who will share our values and believe 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 will also have a consistently strong academic record, with a minimum 2:1 predicted degree result.
Additionally, for Engineering and Finance positions you will need to be studying a relevant degree. For HR and Logistics, most disciplines are acceptable but business related degrees are preferred. We typically take on Industrial Placement students in four areas: Business Operations Management, HR, Finance and engineering.
At Toyota Manufacturing UK, during your 11 month placement, we reward performance and hard work.
We also offer an excellent range of benefits including:
• Current Salary: £18,685 plus overtime
