As a team we pride ourselves on challenging and developing our Placement Students by providing exposure to a breadth of engineering within Formula 1. In addition to this, we are also leading the transfer of state-of-the-art Formula 1 technology into the revolutionary Mercedes AMG Road Car “Project One”.

During your Quality Engineering Placement, you will work to understand the challenges we face to refine existing production methods in order to improve quality, capacity or to reduce cost for the 4X World Championship winning team. You will have the opportunity to experience a rotation within our highly dedicated quality inspection team, to develop a broader knowledge of quality principles, all whilst working on real engines components within tight deadlines.

Finally, you will gain Quality Systems and ISO 9001 knowledge, working in a High Performance environment, and you will have the autonomy to actively contribute to your team, suggesting new methods of working or challenging existing methods if other options are available.
