The Placement Programme

You will be working directly on car components for 2023 season updates and for the new 2024 car.

You will assist senior engineers with larger projects but also work individually on your own components.

The placement will be extremely demanding but will reward exceptional effort and commitment.

During the year students will work closely with other departments including the race team, and get the opportunity to better understand how we operate the car as well as our manufacturing techniques, test methods and data analysis.

Students normally have the opportunity to work in our factory operations room during race weekends should they wish.

Many of our past students have returned full time following their studies. We view our placement programme as an ideal way to discover our senior engineers of the future.

Successful candidates must:

  • Be eligible to work in the UK
  • Be able to demonstrate an innovative and flexible approach to problem solving and possess the ability to work through problems in a scientific and analytical way
  • Be able to integrate quickly into the team and be actively involved
  • Have good communication and analytical skills and be able to work to tight deadlines under pressure
  • Be highly self-motivated and have a flexible approach to working hours
  • Credit will be given to those who can demonstrate active involvement in Formula Student or other motorsport activities
