Graduate Project Manager

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Our people-centred culture, combined with our tech and data expertise makes us one of the UK's leading companies and a great place to start your career as a Graduate Project Manager.

We work in a fast-paced, agile environment, which means collaboration is vital. Our community of Project Managers are involved in every aspect of our product launches and improvements, from discovery to delivery right across the business. They provide project management and technical delivery support, analysis and process improvement with the overall goal of improving our customers' experience.

All of our graduates start their journey at our in-house academy. You don't have to be a car enthusiast to work here so upon joining; we'll grow your knowledge of the automotive industry so you can truly understand our customers and what we do as a business. You'll build your experience further by working alongside our talented community of delivery leads.

Benefits and more

We offer a starting salary of £26,000 and a flexible benefits package, including a pension scheme, healthcare and 28 days annual leave (not inc bank holidays) plus ½ day afternoon closures on Christmas and New Year’s Eve. You'll also have the opportunity to join masterclasses, attend conferences, and have access to coaching and mentoring.

Everyone is unique in their way, and we are looking for people from all walks of life to become part of our inclusive culture. We're committed to making Auto Trader a diverse and inclusive environment for everyone. Diversity for us means respect for and appreciation of differences in gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, race and ethnic origin, religion and faith, marital status, social, educational background and way of thinking. Our dedication is to ensure you get the chance to be the best that you can be, showcase your full potential and make the right choice for you.

Our graduate programme starts in both June and October 2021, and you can state your preference on the application form as you move through the recruitment process.

What we are looking for

You'll have a passion for customer experience and be excited by our agile, collaborative and customer-first culture. You'll demonstrate an analytical approach as we make decisions based on data, not opinion. Communication skills are essential, and you'll understand the importance of a collaborative approach. Our Project Managers manage several concurrent projects at any one time, so organisation skills are vital. We'll be looking to understand how you've managed projects in university or in previous roles to determine if this is the right role for you.
