Undergraduate 12-month Industrial Placement – Customer Support Engineering

At Prodrive we like to challenge convention and we know what it takes to win. By combining our motorsport ethos with free thinking we create innovative and world leading designs, products and programmes which inspire our customers to fulfil their ambitions on the track and off-road.  We also happen to make championship-winning race and rally cars.

We currently have major new-car programmes both on the track with AMR and off-road with RallyX and are looking for talented engineers to join our engineering team on a one year placement from Summer 2019.  Having won the GTE World Endurance Championship in 2016 and Le Mans in 2017, winning is what we are accustomed to and this placement opportunity will provide you with the exposure of working alongside some of the best motorsport engineers in the world.

We now have a placement available in Customer Support Engineering where you will be exposed to:

  • Provide technical input to the customer to assist with car setup and strategy

  • Learn how to adjust engine mapping and track strategies tailored to relevant circuits

  • Advise the customer to ensure their parts requirement is sufficient to achieve their objectives

  • Provide scheduling information for purchasing to ensure efficient parts manufacture and supply

  • Generate post event reports highlighting issues and recommendations on improvement

  • Progress recommendations following an event

  • Ensure efficient operation of the car and engine by the customer

    You must be driven, motivated and eager to learn in this varied role, with a clear passion for motorsport and you must be working towards or attaining a 2:1 or above.

    If you want to make a real difference on your year out, if you want to become part of a winning team and if you want to build a fantastic foundation ahead of a career in motorsport, we’d love to hear from you.
