What to expect

This is where our inspiration, and yours, comes to life. Join us here and you’ll be working right at the cutting-edge, utilising the world’s most advanced technologies in state-of- the-art facilities.

Computer Aided Design (CAD) involves geometric solutions that capture and embed component designs into computerised form for use throughout the company. CAD Engineers are responsible for delivering the geometries to the customers within the core departments. This could involve scoping out the projects, developing a suitable design, agreeing that design and building the appropriate geometries. In these roles it is also important to develop new methods and procedures within the company to better improve our use of CAD data internally, developing tools that make different departments’ day to day work easier. This role is heavily linked to Component Engineers with whom the CAD Engineer works to develop components and system solutions.

With ongoing support from industry-leading experts and opportunities to gain further skills and experience, you’ll be the one keeping us out in front.

What you'll need

Excellence runs throughout our entire business and we expect you to be the same. So as well as working towards a degree in Engineering, Maths, Physics or Computing at 2:2 level or higher, you’ll need drive, creativity, a keen eye for detail and a never-ending commitment to delivering results.

We have a wide variety of roles that span across our engineering function . Although you are applying specifically to this stream, there will be opportunity for you once you have been offered a place on the undergraduate scheme to express which other areas are of interest to you. This will help us to determine where your best fit will be.

Whatever your role, you’ll discover our dedication to developing excellence runs throughout the

business. Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach to your work.

And with ongoing support from industry-leading experts, you’ll quickly realise the schemes have been designed to be just as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce.

All of our undergraduate programmes have a fixed start date commencing June 24 2019 and will be for a set duration of 3, 6 or 12 months.

Rewards and benefits

Whichever path you follow, your hard work and contribution deserves recognition. So as well as ongoing support and learning opportunities, you’ll receive a competitive salary. This will be around £300 per week, or £15,600 p.a.

For those on 6 or 12 month placements, a generous holiday allowance will also be yours, as will many other benefits. With on-site facilities like gyms and sports hall, plus regular social events, you’ll have plenty of chances to make friends and have fun too.
