What we are looking for:
What to expect:
Being part of the team from day one, getting involved, the more questions you ask the more you will gain from your experience. Working with highly skilled and experienced engineering professionals, graduates who you can learn and develop with. It is important to know that many of our industrial placements have been successful in obtaining graduate roles on completion of their degree.
Student Placement Application Process:
When shortlisting student placement applications for Race Operations we look for relevant subjects at University in subjects such as Mechanical, General, Engineering Science or Aerodynamics and strong A-levels in Maths and Physics. Students will have a minimum of two years experience at University before the placement starts. It is also essential that you should return to your course for a minimum of one year following completion of the placement. We are unable to accept applications from students in their final year of their university studies.
When applying for student placements opportunities, all students are expected to submit a covering letter along with a Curriculum Vitae containing the following information:
