Volkswagen Group UK is wholly owned by the Volkswagen AG one of the most successful automotive manufacturers in the world, with some of the most iconic brands that the industry has ever seen. But we’re also a great Sales & Marketing operation in our own right. We have over 800 permanent employees and a network of more than 1,000 dealerships in the UK. Operating out of Milton Keynes, Volkswagen Group UK sells half a million vehicles every year. In fact, one in every five cars sold in the UK is a Volkswagen Group brand.
However, what really sets us apart is how we work – not how many vehicles we sell. Volkswagen Group UK is a commercially astute, nimble, customer-focused operation. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time.
You never know what might happen. That’s why we’ve designed a package to help protect you and those you care about. In addition to life assurance and sickness pay, you’ll also be able to choose from a range of insurance options.Search Careers
