In our BIW facility you will either specialise in sheet metal works or learn all aspects of the vehicle body construction process and the equipment we use to put everything together
  • Alternatively, you could be based in our Field Evaluation Unit (FEU) or International Upgrade (IU) teams at Gaydon and Fen End. Both teams support the end-to-end vehicle launch lifecycle from early prototype vehicle preparation to updating and preparing the units for external sale post-completion. You could find yourself in anything from pre-delivery inspections to deconstructs and rebuilds for second-hand sale, spanning engine changes, chassis updates, trim changes and full vehicle software downloads as well as vehicle inspections to MOT standard
