Build Systems Placement Brixworth 2024
At Mercedes AMG High Performance Powertrains, we offer a 12 month Build Systems Placement programme which will tap into your passion and determination to win, giving you a real opportunity to contribute to our success story. You will be joining a group of incredible engineers with dedication and expertise to deliver hardware and systems needed to build one of, if not the most powerful Power Unit in the world of F1. You will be able to immerse yourself in decades of innovation and the relentless pursuit of performance as we push the boundaries of what is possible.
About the role
Your team will ensure the meticulously engineered and machined power unit components are assembled with precision, without fault, and with great repeatability. Without this function, the power unit as we know it today simply could not have been built. Your role would not include designing power unit components.
Being agile and fast is crucial as we rapidly develop tools, processes, and products towards the new Power Unit regulation changes for the start of the 2026 championship season. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your CAD skills in Siemens NX, work with our obligatory Faults System, and liaise with a myriad of divisions across the company: Automation, Engine Build, Project Management and Product Design, to name but a few.
An element of your role will be working closely with Project Management and Engine Build. Acquainting yourself with every Power Unit component by mapping them from a Bill of Materials to kits needed to assemble the engine at any given stage of its build; you will be orchestrating the requirements for stores to pick against.
You will also have the opportunity to help build the Internal Combustion Engine, Electric Machines, and Battery Packs, through the tools and process improvements you’ll be delivering.
We will endeavor to give you the most rounded experience possible. In exchange, we’ll be looking for creativity, drive, rigor, and excitement to assure extraordinary work.
You may be a motorsport enthusiast, a technology aficionado, or simply an admirer of perfection, we want you to be part of our history and join the ranks of those who dare to dream and push the art of the possible towards our future success.
