LKQ Euro Car Parts has launched a finance graduate scheme to create new pathways for young people looking to begin their career in the automotive industry.
The brand, based in Tamworth, will support three graduates to gain CIMA/ACCA accredited accountancy qualifications over a three-year programme.
The launch of the finance graduate scheme follows the success of the business’s Finance internship programme, it says, where three students from Aston University joined the finance department as a part of their industrial placement year.
Successful applicants will join a workforce of over 10,000 employees, who are instrumental in maintaining LKQ Euro Car Parts’ position as the UK’s leading motor factor.
Annick Jourdenais, chief financial officer at LKQ Euro Car Parts, said: “Recruiting and nurturing young talent is one of our top priorities. Not only does it allow us to tackle the growing skills gap in the sector, but it helps us diversify our recruitment pool, which filters upwards to produce a more representative workforce.
“Our new graduate scheme creates space for more young people to pursue a fulfilling career in Finance and to excel in the automotive industry. We’re excited to hear from applicants about the value and fresh perspectives that they can bring to our business and the wider industry.”
Applications are open now, with graduates able to register interest here.
