Project Manager - Prototype Build/Pilot Operations - EV - South - £45k - £70k DOE
Your automotive job - does it allow you to do the undo-able? To achieve the unachievable? Or to engineer the impossible?
Do you go home with a sense of pride, having designed or developed something truly innovative? Do you get a sense of worth from your job that money just cannot buy? Are your big ideas constrained by narrow thinking?
Perhaps it's time to think differently. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity for automotive engineers. We are seeking visionary design and development engineers who possess the drive and desire to do things, differently.
If this is you, perhaps it is finally time to think the unthinkable and move to a new automotive role…only better.
