Opportunities for DCU Students
Volkswagen Group Ireland is wholly owned by Volkswagen AG, the largest automotive company in the world with many of the most iconic automotive brands.
In Ireland we are a sales and marketing organisation distributing the Volkswagen, Audi, CUPRA, Seat, Skoda and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles brands. We focus on maximising long-term sales and profitability for vehicles, parts, and accessories and on building brand loyalty through the product and service experience. We do this working in partnership with a network of over 100 franchise retailers across the Republic of Ireland, and together we are very good at what we do with over 500,000 vehicles on Irish roads today, and 1 in 4 new cars sold each year is from one of our brands.
In addition to our commercial success, what sets us apart is how we work. We combine all the advantages of a multi-brand group while at the same time encouraging a friendly upbeat rivalry that keeps us all moving forward together.
