Renault Sport have been a presence within Formula 1 for 40 years and we are embarking on a truly exciting period in our history. As the Team progresses up the grid we are looking to expand our Race Car Design Group. If you have ambition and wish to join an organisation that intends to be fighting for the championship soon, then let’s see if your skills match our requirements. Within our factory in Enstone, we are looking to hire the most talented individuals to support our mission. As part of this team we have a position within our Design Office as a Senior Mechanical Design Engineer.
Senior Mechanical Design Engineer – The Role
Working in the mechanical section of our Design Office, primary responsibilities will be to undertake the scheming and detailing of mechanical systems and components (such as suspension, steering, hydraulic, fuel, engine installation & cooling, driver controls, electrical packaging etc). In addition, while it is not required that candidates should be a composites specialist, candidates should be confident to design non-structural composite material components (such as oil tanks, fuel collectors, brake drums, cooling ducts etc). Duties will also include detailing any necessary manufacturing/assembly tooling, jigs or testing fixtures.
Senior Mechanical Design Engineer – The Person
As a senior design position we have high expectations of a candidate’s engineering abilities and in particular candidates must be able to demonstrate:
• An understanding of implications on overall car performance when balancing design criteria
• Experience of being a senior specialist/technical expert for a defined part of the car
• A proven and pro-active fault implementation approach
• The ability to check junior designer drawings before release and steer less experienced staff whilst working under their defined area
• A track record of high standards/ownership for all aspects of work delivered
