Global Graduate Program 2024 – Tech track at Volvo Car Gent

A lot can happen in 24 months.

Do you have the curiosity to learn, the will to develop and the drive to create change? We’re looking for skilled engineers, technical enthusiasts and change-makers to join our transformation. Our tech track at Volvo Car Gent will allow you to deep dive into your technical areas of interest combining a local and global perspective.

About our Global Graduate Program


The Global Graduate Program is a 2-year career-boosting program designed around your potential in our global organization! Globally, we offer two program tracks – Business and Tech – allowing both future business enablers and skilled engineers to thrive and develop with us. Both career paths are equally important to successfully drive transformation! In Volvo Car Gent, one of our manufacturing plants, we offer the tech track, reaching out to Dutch speaking technical oriented graduates.

Every year, Volvo Cars welcomes around 50 graduates globally. By joining the program, you become part of an inclusive community of other young professionals. Throughout the program you will all come together for common module weeks, projects, and learning opportunities.


The rotational program takes you on a journey within Volvo cars where you get to explore your skills and interests in 4 different departments during the two years. You will start in Gent, more specific in the department which you are recruited into, and your hiring manager will guide and support you throughout the program.


The program starts August 19th, 2024. The Volvo Car Gent young graduates are both located in Gent and Globally, with a ratio of 3 Gent departments, 1 global department reflecting your personal choice and of course the program sessions at our global Head Quarters in Gothenburg, Sweden.
