We're in a period of unprecedented innovation in the automotive industry as we move away from conventional powertrains towards hybrid and eventually fully electric vehicles. We want you to join us on this journey. With your knowledge and experience of battery build you'll working in the team responsible for battery build and development for all of our future hybrid and EV programmes. You'll be joining us right at the start of what is going to be an exciting time for McLaren Automotive.

It's a highly demanding part of our business due to it being the focus of our Track25 business plan. You'll be building the development batteries for our vehicles, carrying out tear down, running build verification tests, and routing, packaging, and integrating batteries.

McLaren Automotive is committed to being at the forefront of innovation, development, and investment over the next decade, and it's our goal to produce an EV hyper-car by the end of the 2020s. To make this goal a reality, we're rapidly growing our Electric Drive team, based between Woking and Sheffield.

Working alongside some of the best Engineers in the Hybrid and Electric Drive industry and leveraging our unique alliances with industry partners and research institutions, we can help you to rapidly develop your career. The team is around 30 strong currently, and we're expecting this to grow to over 70 in the next couple of years. And this growth means opportunity for you: opportunity for progression; to take on new challenges; and learn novel areas of technology as you help McLaren to innovate.

We need you to have some exposure to battery build in either an automotive or racing environment with some knowledge of batteries and their associated components. You'll need to also be able to use high voltage tools like isolation testers and simulators. Above all, if you have a passion for electrification and want to continue to innovate and develop in this field then this is the role for you.
