Here at Nissan, we are committed to fairness and diversity in the workplace.

We don’t do it because we have to, or to fulfil any equal opportunities obligations – we do it because it’s the right thing to do. And, because we want the best people no matter who they are or what they look like.

Only 9% of UK engineering professionals are women.* In order to address this, we’re working side-by-side with WISE (Women in Science, Engineering and Maths), an organisation whose mission is to increase the gender balance in the UK’s STEM workforce.

We know what our exceptional female engineers can do. This is why, together with WISE, we want to increase the opportunities for female students and to make sure they understand the full range of career options within the automotive sector and the rewards it can offer.wise10-steps-logo_opt1_72dpi-003

Don’t be mistaken, we’re not looking for women just to make up the numbers. Like any of our graduates and placement students, you’ll be set challenging assignments and with support from the rest of the team, expected to deliver results.

Our STEM placements have been a great success in the past – they’ve produced some of our very best graduates. So, if you have the drive and ambition to join them, search and apply for the role that’s right for you.

“Nissan’s recruitment team look for the best people irrespective of who they are or where they come from. As women drive andpurchase our vehicles in significant numbers, we feel it is equally important that women are also building, designing and engineering our cars. As a company we’re committed to increasing the number of females in our workforce, which is why we are leading the way in creating opportunities for female STEM students. As well as offering placements which can include a £1,500 WISE bursary for female students we are committed to making the Nissan Sunderland Plant a great place to work for all our people”
