Whether you’re passionate about data analysis, mechanical testing, or electronic design we’re eager to hear about the unique skills and interests you can bring to the role. In return, we’ll support your development, encourage your interests, and help you to grow as valued member of the team.

It does not matter whether you already have an interest in motorsport: We are looking for individuals who are passionate about reaching their full potential and are excited about constantly learning. Whatever your background, we believe that you will find your placement with us a memorable and enriching experience. 

Flexibility in hours and approach is required, along with a ‘can do’, ‘team-playing’ attitude and the ability to work to strict deadlines under minimal supervision.
