Here at Nissan Maple Cross we are always thinking about the future and this includes your future with us as a graduate. We will reward your time and hard work with a compelling package of graduate employee benefits, including a competitive salary and a company car. If you successfully complete our Graduate Programme, our HR team will fully support you as you transition into a full-time position with us.

Competitive Salary

Nissan Maple Cross graduates are offered a two-year fixed term contract with a starting salary of £28,000 per annum. After each eight-month rotation, there will be an appraisal, where we will work towards defining your future role within the company.


As part of your graduate employee benefits package, you will receive 25 days’ paid holiday (including an extra half day if your birthday falls on a working day).

Car Scheme

If you choose to, you can participate in our company car scheme, where you can choose up to four vehicles with a competitive monthly leasing agreement. This price includes usage of the vehicle, maintenance and car insurance. We update our model list on a regular basis to ensure that you can drive the latest products.

Other Benefits

As part of your package, we will provide you with a pension scheme, private medical insurance, access to a subsidised on-site restaurant, corporate gym membership and free parking.

All Maple Cross graduates also enjoy our on-site sports and social committee, dress-down Fridays, a cycle to work scheme and, when available, free O2 concert and UEFA tickets.
