Your constant challenge, working as part of our diverse and multi-skilled AME team, will be to ensure our iconic brands continue to captivate the world tomorrow.


Reporting to the Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (AME) Lead Engineer and to the AME Process Manager, the department is responsible for all Advanced Manufacturing Engineering activities within Final Assembly on new vehicle and model year programmes. This includes creation of process, delivery of tools, jigs and fixtures. Quality and data analysis and reporting of major issues will be a fundamental part of the role with the deployment of failure mode avoidance tools and supporting cross-functional teams in the resolution of those issues on projects. The completion of feasibility assessments to ensure Design for Assembly (DFA) and compliance with the Bill of Process (BOP) will be critical in helping to deliver profitability for the business.  Your focus will be on a key commodity e.g. Electrical, Chassis, Exterior Trim, Interior Trim, etc.

You’ll be part of a team of engineers collaborating across functions, particularly with the Product Development teams, Body in White and Quality, to ensure we have established compliance with the BOP to deliver processes that meet our Basic Minute Value (BMV) and quality targets. It is also important for us to share best practice across the platforms and between manufacturing plants to ensure we employ the best processes available wherever possible.

You’ll need to achieve results and meet commitments in a fast-paced environment and be committed to building relationships. You’ll be a team player with good interpersonal skills, along with being proactive and enthusiastic by nature, self-motivated and a problem solver.

Furthermore you’ll be confident with managing and collating data and presenting in various forums to your team and other stakeholders and have good written and oral English. 

The base locations are dependent upon the current needs of the department. However, a high degree of flexibility is required to support the on-going development and launch of programmes.

Please be advised that we have monthly assessment centres for these roles.  If you are successful at application stage, we will be in touch with you to advise you of the next available assessment centre that you will be invited to.
