Job description

Nissan has a reputation for being an excellent employer; from creating a safe, modern working environment, to running comprehensive training and development programmes. HR is a key function within the business, working hand in hand with all departments as they attract, develop and engage their staff.

Joining us in the HR department, you’ll gain exposure to a wide range of operations based at NMUK, with opportunities to influence Nissan on a European and global scale. Areas within our HR department include recruitment, employee relations, payroll, pensions, strategy and planning, training and development, contracts and communications.

You’ll briefly experience a range of activities within the department before taking responsibility for your own activities. This involves a mix of shop floor and office based experience, allowing a varied arena in which to apply your talents and the chance to gain a much broader insight into the business as a whole.

Within this role your personal qualities are highly prized; good communication skills, confidence, an understanding nature and plenty of common sense – all these will be built on with comprehensive training to help you launch a successful career in this high profile role.

Starting: September 2017.
