Commercial Business Analyst

(Undergraduate Internship/Placement Year – 12 months)

Hi, welcome to Kia UK!


Who’s Kia?

Founded in 1944, Kia was originally known for our bikes…then motorbikes…and now, leaders in developing electrified vehicles. These cars include the award winning Sportage plus others, alongside our world beating Electric Vehicles, such as the awesome EV6 and EV9.

Kia is at the forefront of electrical vehicle development and currently we’re the 4th largest vehicle manufacturer globally, but we’re not stopping there.

Our mission is “to create space for people to get inspired and time to bring their ideas to life”. But what does that really mean? It means that we don’t just create great products, we also deliver great experiences. Here at Kia, we don’t just sell cars, we also offer a huge range of services including Kia Connect (where users can control their car remotely), Kia Charge, MyKia platform, Kia Car Insurance – the list goes on. However, arguably the most important service we deliver is Kia Parts & Accessories. This is where you come in…

The automotive industry is competitive and ever changing. We need you to support us in developing the Parts & Accessories commercial positioning by analysing our performance and making data driven recommendations for our future.


What will I be doing?

  • Maintaining a commercial price positioning analysis tool

  • Monitoring our competitors’ parts prices and creating parts pricing analysis

  • Creating quarterly price file reviews

  • Maintaining and updating the main Kia website with various P&A programme data

  • Creating and maintaining reporting for other key Commercial programmes

  • Encouraged to work with other departments to achieve your objectives and develop your learning and skill set

Am I right for this?

We don’t want to discourage anybody from applying for this role by making a long list of requirements but to summarise; we want someone who is genuinely passionate about understanding Analytics, so ideally studying a relevant course in business, commerce, or statistics.

This role will encourage you to act quickly, test your flexibility, and motivate you to constantly adapt to new things. You can get a huge amount of experience, knowledge and skill development out of a year with us so we’d really love to welcome someone with big dreams that we can support!
