We will provide exposure to Production Management, Process Engineering, Supplier Quality Assurance, Machining, Quality, Assembly and Business Management.

We are looking to recruit graduates with a degree in Manufacturing, Mechanical or Automotive Engineering. A previous placement or experience in an OEM or Tier 1 Automotive supplier would be an advantage.

Successful candidates will have a minimum 2:1 BEng degree ; but ideally have an MSc or MEng. We are looking to recruit self-motivated manufacturing engineers with a strong desire to work within the automotive industry demonstrated through work or outside interests.
