At Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains we offer a 12 month Quality Engineering programme which will tap into your passion and determination to win, giving you a real opportunity to contribute to our success story. As a team we pride ourselves on challenging and developing our Graduates with a scheme which will provide exposure to Formula 1, Formula E and also to 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 7X 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.

What do we need from you?

  • A curious, tenacious and driven individual with a hunger to work in a fast paced environment
  • You’ll be on track to achieve a 2.1 degree or above in a relevant engineering subject -
  • Practical, “hands-on” experience to complement your academic studies, ideally within an associated Quality role or environment would be desirable
  • A team player, able to build relationships across the wider business
  • A flexible and adaptable approach which will enable you to develop your skills
  • An open and innovative mind, as most of the problems we solve are not run of the mill
  • The courage to challenge and desire to be challenged, to expand your technical knowledge and skills with a focus on continuous improvement

What can we offer you?

We offer the opportunity to work in a state of the art Research and Development Centre, being involved in exciting technological challenges alongside some of Formula 1’s best engineers.
