Are you a born leader? Confident you can keep pace with the best? Pride yourself on your customer service skills? Thrive in a fast-paced environment? Want a great career with two of the UK’s best known automotive brands? Then look no further!
Peugeot Citroën Retail is owned by the iconic brands in our name. We have 45 dealerships in the UK and Ireland and we sell more than 70,000 cars and vans a year. That makes us a major player in the automotive world (and let’s face it, what a world to be in!). As the manufacturer-owned retail Group we aim to lead the way and our Retail Graduate Programme is looking for new talent who are confident that they have the X factor to do just that. Our people give us the edge. We expect drive and grit to achieve our goals, and of course, an excellent attitude when dealing with customers. Our people are motivated and committed; they ensure that the customer experience is at the heart of everything they do.
If you believe you can contribute to this experience then as a Retail Graduate trainee you’ll have the chance to learn the ins and outs of dealership life. If you prove you’ve got what it takes, you’ll be one of our future leaders.
Within the region we have Dealerships based in cities such as Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester, and Coventry.
At the start of your 3-year programme you’ll spend time working in both a Sales and an Aftersales department at one of the sites within the region and really understand how a dealership ticks. Following discussions with your Managers and the HR function, you’ll then decide what direction your career path will take. As we’re growing our Managers of the future, in your final placement you’ll have the opportunity to step up to Assistant Manager level and get real hands-on experience of managing a team.
Throughout the programme, as well as receiving hands-on experience, you’ll also be involved in important business projects and have access to structured training through our dedicated Training Academy.

* An annual salary of circa £22,000
* 2 cars on our Employee Car Ownership Scheme
* Discounts on New and Used vehicles for family and friends
* 22 days’ holiday
