Contract Type
Full Time
While you're representing McLaren Automotive at one of our supplier sites in Austria, you'll be crucial to ensuring the effective and timely production of battery systems which will power the next generation of high-performance supercars.

You'll spend the first month here in Woking, Surrey, gaining and understanding of our exciting hybrid and electric drive technology and programmes, before travelling to Austria for a period of 6 months. During this time, you'll be working closely with our Supplier Quality Assurance, Engineering, and Purchasing teams to help deliver the batteries.

You'll be the point of contact between McLaren and our supplier, delivering key communications and requirements while stationed there, and working hard to influence the supplier to ensure the best outcome for the programmes.

There's lots of key milestones in the development stages of our programmes, so at each one you'll be collaborating with Supply Chain Management to make sure the projects are on time for both pre-production and production.

You don't need to be an expert in battery system design (although it would help!) but you'll need knowledge of energy storage systems or electric drive systems, as well as a good all-round understanding of component design and packaging using CAD systems such as CATIA v5. Above all, you need to be someone that's able to communicate well, influence people, and deliver key information to make sure everyone's on-side and working towards the same end goal.

At the end of the 6 month assignment in Austria, you'll be heading back to our HQ in Woking, Surrey, where you'll continue to work on the delivery of battery systems in a very similar role.
