The Next Generation Award 2015: Flying from car launches in Austria to the Paris design studio

Nicole Agba’s month with Peugeot was jam-packed with trips to Austria and Paris to work in a range of different departments with the manufacturer nicole

After a stint on the sales floor of the flagship Peugeot dealer Robins & Day in Coventy, Nicole set off for 24-hours in Gratz, Austria, for the international press launch of the Peugeot 208.

Nicole worked with Peugeot’s PR team to test drive the hatchback and to get a taste, first-hand, of how the company positions its products to journalists.

Next-stop for Nicole was a week at Peugeot’s design studio in Paris, and an opportunity for her to further develop her skill as a designer. “I created concepts for a superyacht, and found that designing an interior space was a nice contrast from car cabins because it lets you use more materials that aren’t suitable for automotive design.”

“Peugeot gave me a really varied experience within all areas of the industry and I became completely immersed in the automotive world,” Nicole explains.

We loaded Nicole with an action cam so she could capture some footage of her european adventures, you can watch the video here.

Nicole’s third placement is with Toyota, where she worked on marketing projects for the Toyota Mirai, the world’s first production hydrogen car.

If you’d like to win an internship at Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren, Peugeot, Skoda and Toyota, plus £9000, submit an original idea or innovation that would improve the UK automotive business in one of four categories – mobility, connectivity, sustainability or customer experience.
