Applying for a new job can be challenging.  Without knowing the company or who will be reviewing your application it can be hard to tailor your application to your audience.  We recognise this and have put together some key pointers on how to give yourself the best chance in your application to NMUK, including key characteristics we are looking for within your submission.

The variety of positions in our office-based roles is extraordinary; whether you already have an established career and are looking for your next step, or are looking for a completely new challenge, we want to hear from you.  Our key advice is to always be true to yourself throughout your application; it is as much about us being a match for you as you being a match for us.  Aside from that, we hope you enjoy the process of applying to NMUK.  We hope this information helps, enjoy and good luck!

What We're Looking For
  • Flexible

    A flexible approach is essential in all roles as our work challenges and demands can change on a daily basis.  You need to be able to pick up a new task and be open to learning new skills.  Depending on the role, this may include a flexible approach to working hours at key times e.g. end of month in Finance.

  • Ability to Prioritise

    NMUK roles can be demanding and you could have requests for support from all levels and departments, so you need to be able to identify and prioritise the most important and urgent tasks.  This may include managing other parties’ expectations when tasks are reprioritised.

  • Accurate

    No matter what area of the offices you work in, the information you provide will ultimately support and impact upon our production so it needs to be correct.  You will need to have an eye for detail and an understanding of the subject to be able to identify inaccuracies.

  • Proactive

    You will need to be able to use your initiative to make decisions and improvements to help drive NMUK forward. You will need to have a proactive approach to getting tasks completed as here at Nissan we are thriving to improve on a daily basis.

  • Autonomous

    You will need to be able to work independently and manage your own tasks and objectives without being micro-managed. NMUK is a very fast-paced environment so you will need to have or develop the confidence to make decisions on your own.
