‘As part of the Kaizen team, you will have the opportunity to work cross functionally with colleagues throughout the Nissan team to use your skills, knowledge, and creativity in making vital improvements to the production environment.
From simple repairs to existing facility, to the development of new ideas, you will have the opportunity to see these brought to life, generating improvements across many aspects of the production cycle.

During years two and three you’ll work full-time, spending one day per week on day release at college, and four days at the plant where you will have the opportunity to apply your knowledge whilst building world class experience.
