Toyota is the leading company for hybrid vehicle development, and the new Corolla. Its Touring Sports variant is the future of TMUK – the first model to introduce Toyota’s dual hybrid strategy.
Who we are
Toyota's decision to establish a manufacturing operation in the UK was announced in 1989 and Toyota Motor Manufacturing (UK) Ltd was established in December that year. There are two manufacturing plants in the UK, representing a total investment of £2.75 billion and employing approximately 3,000 members (including Agency). The vehicle manufacturing plant, currently producing the Corolla model, is located at Burnaston in Derbyshire and the engine manufacturing plant developing hybrid engines for vehicles such as the C-HR and Prius is located at Deeside in North Wales.
Regardless of the area of the business you join us in, you’ll be involved with live projects from the start and be given the opportunity to make a real impact within the company. You work alongside experienced people who'll go out of their way to make sure that you're always learning and embracing our unique culture and the world-famous Toyota Production System. Development is an intrinsic part of the way we work - the unique management philosophy that's made us an automotive leader. At its heart is the Japanese concept of kaizen - a belief that no process can ever be declared perfect; that there's always a better way. You can see it in our world-leading processes, our innovative products and, of course, in the way we develop our people. Curiosity and new concepts drive our business forward, and our collaborative culture means we are always looking to the next challenge. It's only through our people's determination today that we can continue our progress tomorrow.
“Valuing Diversity, Encouraging Inclusion” is a key part of our culture to ensure that everyone feels safe and supported within the workplace.
