Graduate scheme launched by LKQ Euro Car Parts

LKQ Euro Car Parts has launched its first ever Finance graduate scheme, with three positions available on the new three-year funded programme that will see the successful applicants gain CIMA/ACCA accredited accountancy qualifications.

Those selected to take part in the scheme will also be provided with a personal mentor, as well as being sponsored by the Director of Commercial Finance and Financial planning and analysis (FP&A), Melanie Lowe.

The new scheme follows the business’s Finance internship programme, where three students from Aston University joined the Finance department as a part of their industrial placement year.

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.”

Selected applicants will be invited to an assessment day on 14 December at LKQ Euro Car Parts’ HQ and central distribution centre in Birch Coppice Business Park.
