Volkswagen

Introduction

People are at the heart of the Volkswagen culture, which is one of innovation, progress and a desire to deliver exceptional service. We recognise that we can only achieve our business goals by attracting and developing the most talented people, affording them the right development and the means and motivation to realise their full potential.

We attract, develop, reward and recognise the broad range of individuals who build our success. They deserve a great place to work – one which they can feel proud, a place of warmth, support and enthusiasm.

 

 


The Volkswagen Modern Apprenticeship Program

The Volkswagen Modern Apprenticeship Program has been designed to equip you with the relevant skills and knowledge to become fully qualified in your chosen career. The Apprenticeship is for four years (three years of training with the academy) and consists of a variety of workplace and off-the-job training. Your career will be given full support to help you successfully complete the program.


Few businesses can offer their employees such diversity, challenges, excellent training and career development prospects. Volkswagen offer a wide choice of attractive career opportunities for all levels of experience, aptitude and personality types – whether you are technically minded, a ‘numbers’ person or more people oriented.


Every Apprentice is encouraged to demonstrate initiative and contribute his or her own ideas for improving customer service and developing the business. But this approach requires a special type of person. You must have the ambition to contribute and succeed in a fast-paced, results oriented environment and strive to be the best in everything you do.


As an apprentice, you will be employed by and based at your local dealer in your state or territory, while regularly travelling to NSW for intensive apprentice training and course assessment conducted at each of the manufacturer's training facilities. At this point, we do not offer in-school training courses.

The Volkswagen Commitment

Throughout Volkswagen we have a rigorous commitment to quality and excellence. Our products are highly acclaimed, our processes for distribution and support services are world class and we have some of the most technologically advanced resources in any industry. We have a reputation for providing the best and most genuine customer retail experience to every person visiting our dealerships. We want you to be part of this delivery.

Volkswagen is committed to the continuous development of the skills and knowledge of its people, through training, coaching and distance learning. For Volkswagen to maintain its excellent reputation, employees need to be kept up-to-date with changes in technology and commercial developments that affect the delivery of customer satisfaction and the business objectives. We therefore invest heavily in training, making our people some of the best trained in the industry.
