Graduate Jobs with Aston Martin
The Aston Martin Graduate Jobs programme offers a variety of interesting and challenging roles across the business.
Aston Martin is one of the world’s most recognisable brands, and working for the company is undoubtedly a great achievement. It is also a great privilege. Of course, the brand is synonymous with 007 James Bond. First and foremost, though, Aston Martin is one of the world’s most respected and valuable luxury brands. Its products lead the way in style, performance, quality and personality in the segment.
Clients of the brand expect nothing less than the highest standards in everything associated with the brand, not just the driving experience of the car itself. That is why Aston Martin has to offer the best customer experience across all areas of the company. To match the expectations of the brand, the company has to employ only the most suitable and highly qualified candidates. Competition for these roles is fierce, but the excitement of working for one of the world’s greatest brands is second to none.
The factory at Gaydon is both the primary manufacturing site and also the Head Office for the brand internationally. There are often a wide variety of Aston Martin Graduate Jobs available each year in both manufacturing roles and business support roles.
The brand has also invested over £200m in a second production plant at St Athan in South Wales. This is where Aston Martin will manufacture the company’s first SUV, the DBX, due to go on sale in 2019. As a result, the number of employment opportunities with Aston Martin is only going to increase as production of this new model commences.
In addition to the Aston Martin Graduate Jobs summarised below, the company also offers a range of Apprenticeships at the Headquarters and factory in Gaydon, as well as the Dealership network:
