​Position Description:

  • The Body Test Operations (BTO) team plan and manage the physical prototype test properties for Body Engineering and Vehicle Safety teams.

  • These properties support the development of new models and anything required for current production models.

  • A typical test properties consists of a bare body shell that is fitted with only the necassary parts, and a number of supporting 'kits' of parts.

  • As a Programme Support Engineer you will be supporting the programme lead(s) and will be instrumental in the delivery of around £5m worth of prototype materials that are critical to the delivery of our exciting new line-up of electric client vehicles that will pave our future.

  • In this cross functional role typical tasks may include (but are not limited to):

  • CAD build and validation of parts fitment plan for each test property and kit

  • Liaising with engineers to confirm body rigs plan is appropriate

  • Liaising with engineers to understand the suitability of prototype parts and mapping the 'dependencies' for each property to better understand and optimise the property build timing

  • Investigating parts status per each Bill of Material (BoM) and that they have appropriate order coverage

  • Supporting prototype build as required

  • Initial planning activities for the next testing phase as directed by the programme lead

  • At the end of each testing phase ensuring all remaining physicals are cleared / disposed of.

  Skills Required:

  • Robust and demonstrable Excel skills Understanding and use of 3d CAD for visualisation purposes only (CAD creation is not necessary) & Parts Bills Of Materials (BoM)
