Type of opportunity:
Finance isn’t a back office function at Toyota.
You’ll soon see that a key part of your role is to go and see things for yourself and adopt a dynamic and practical learning method. You’ll spend time on the shop floor and understanding the way we work from a manufacturing perspective. A key part of our role is to develop breakthrough initiatives to manage costs per vehicle by working closely with other departments. Whether you are in cost management, general ledger, accounts payable and received, purchasing, or investment, you'll tackle real commercial projects and discover how finance can add real value to the production process.
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
