Joining a company like Renault means joining a team of almost 117,000 employees around the world, all of them experts in their field. It also means putting your skills at the service of a single corporate strategy, in a constantly evolving sector. Groupe Renault runs a dedicated induction programme to guide you through exploration and take-up of your new working environment.

Introduction to the automotive world, automotive industry functions, Groupe Renault strategy, and the challenges to come (in transport, environment, etc.)

The induction programme has three main objectives:

  • Set out the key features and positioning of Groupe Renault
  • Help you take up Renault strategy and understand our main challenges and development focuses
  • Inform you on major functions across Renault

Internships at plants and dealerships

At the beginning of the process, and depending on the country you work in, practical internships held alongside the first training sessions give you a hands-on understanding of the manufacturing and sales sides of the business.

1. Internship at a plant

In this three-week manufacturing internship, you get to experience shift work as a line operator. The aim is to learn the ins and outs of an automotive plant, finding out more about its businesses, manufacturing processes and day-to-day issues, including production, quality, and work organization.

2. Internship at a dealership

This one-week internship introduces you to the sales and repairs businesses. The objective here is to understand the economics of dealerships, the resources they require to remain profitable and their contribution to the company’s performance. It is a great opportunity to meet Renault customers (and their expectations) and to deepen your understanding of customer loyalty and service quality.
