Groupe PSA´s roots deepen in Slovakia

Groupe PSA is constantly extending its portfolio of activities in Slovakia. They not only manufacture cars here, but also carry out accounting, auditing, purchasing and other activities.

In 2003, the Groupe PSA started writing its remarkable story in Slovakia. Since this time, it has been taking even deeper roots here as its strategic investment in its newest plant in Europe has already exceeded €1 billion.

Groupe PSA has manufactured more than 2.5 million cars in total here since the beginning of the assembly-line production in Trnava back in 2006. More than 80 percent of the production is destined for EU markets.

The carmaker keeps reaching new records in car production, due especially to the modern model novelty Citroën C3, whose production was launched in September 2016.

The company´s 3,500 employees produce 60 vehicles per hour in it´s 183-hectare plant. This amounts to 1,350 vehicles per day.

Groupe PSA is constantly extending its portfolio of activities in Slovakia. They not only manufacture cars here, but also carry out accounting, auditing, purchasing and other activities. Currently, they have a Central Purchasing Unit for Central and Eastern Europe along with a Centre of Accounting Services for Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Central European countries.

We are looking for trainees!

We are looking for dedicated students or graduates with an interest in accounting and financial services, to whom we can offer long-term cooperation, practical experience and the opportunity of a permanent job.

Our programmes for trainees are interesting rather than monotonous and routine. Trainees gain practical experience in various fields, which gives them the tools they need to work at Groupe PSA or somewhere else.

PSA benefits from this program because they can recruit workers they already know. This enables them to shorten the process of recruitment as well as training for the given position. Students can also complete projects conducted by Groupe PSA at a faster rate.
