Within the Nissan Maple Cross Placement Scheme, you will be fully immersed in the company from day one, working closely with our department Managers to realise a number of exciting projects. Your exposure within the business will help you develop vital business skills, enabling you to leave with a sound grounding within the automotive industry and plenty of real life material to support your dissertation.
Many of our previous Nissan Maple Cross placement students have used the opportunity as a route into our graduate scheme and, in 2016, two of our students were offered places on our 2017 intake.
Emma had a fantastic Nissan placement year with us in our Customer Relations Department. In fact she was so successful we offered her a place on our 2017 Graduate Scheme.
Why did you choose the NMGB IP Programme?
It offered me the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, dynamic industry where I would be challenged.
What were your initial impressions of the scheme?
Everybody was helpful, approachable and cared about what they were doing. I found the scheme very well organised and the weekly catch-ups I had with my line manager were hugely beneficial.
What has been the best thing about your placement?
The huge responsibility of my role as a Customer Relations Assistant – I was the sole editor of an internal knowledge retention website and I also got to help with the organisation of our fleet of 70 vehicles.
What activities / events have you been involved with?
I attended a number of O2 events including One Direction, Michael Mcintyre and The Vamps and I spent two days working at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. We also had Sports and Social events such as Laser Tag and meals.
What skills have you developed on the programme?
Work prioritisation, confidence and assertiveness. I also went on a training course to improve my Excel skills.
