Employees

Shoreham Technical Centre (STC), Ricardo’s head office, is home to around 700 engineers, technicians and professional support staff, working across a wide range of specialisms and departments. The Shoreham site hosts a number of test cells, our emissions research centre, niche engine assembly line and the Ricardo centenary innovation centre.

STC is keen to support upcoming, young talent and takes on a number of graduates, apprentices and placement and work experience students throughout the year. We are always happy to see employees creating new societies and groups. We currently have a keen group of runners, golfers, cyclists, a darts club, a football club and more.

There’s plenty going on at Shoreham, be it summer BBQs, on site fireworks displays or Christmas parties. We also have ‘Lunch & Learn’, a series of lunch events which enable employees to learn about new and interesting topics presented by a specialist over a catered lunch.

At Ricardo, we also fully understand that a healthy work-life balance is important so we support part-time and flexible working.
