Engineering Manufacturing Centre (EMC) and Battery Assembly Centre (BAC)
This industry-leading scheme is aimed at graduates who have a passion for learning and a pioneering mindset: ambitious, innovative and determined individuals who respect our heritage and can think beyond the challenges of today to build the cars of tomorrow.
With a blend of hands-on experience and qualifications to target, you will work on projects that are fundamental to our global success. Our EMC and BAC produce a range of propulsion systems that form the heart of all our vehicles in the form of traditional internal combustion engines as well as pioneering battery electrification technology.
The EMC machines and assembles a range of propulsion systems within a state-of-the-art purpose-built manufacturing facility. Meanwhile, the BAC produces our cutting-edge electric propulsion battery, which powers our newest and most advanced hybrid vehicles.
Whether you are allocated to be the EMC or BAC as your home site, which will depend on your personal preferences and business needs, you can get involved in anything from Material Planning & Logistics to Production Operations or Internal Plant Quality. Wherever you focus, you will become an integral part of our team as you support the production of innovative solutions.
