Information Technology Innovation Internships


At McLaren, we believe that anything is possible.  We achieve this by working together, encouraging continuous innovation in a fast paced, highly competitive, technical and commercial environment.  We believe you might be interested in working here … so what are you waiting for?


We have Information Technology Innovation Internships available at McLaren in summer 2018 where you get the opportunity to realise both your innovative ideas at a world class Technology Centre, and get fantastic work experience to help set you up for your future career. 


The Team

We have around 3500 people at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey; in Information Technology, there are over 100 IT professionals partnering with an eco-system of suppliers to deliver innovative technology solutions to our Formula 1, Automotive and Applied Technologies businesses. 


The Opportunity

We want to give you the opportunity to be part of this exceptional environment for a 6-12-week internship. In return we want you to bring to life your best idea on how information technology disruption can be put into practice at McLaren to dramatically improve business performance. 


The Deal

Being in Formula One, the pinnacle of motorsport, we are naturally competitive and we want you to embrace this spirit with the application process.  We want you to submit your application in the form of a CV and covering letter telling us why you should be the winning candidate from this process, the areas of IT that interest you most and how an IT internship focussing on them could benefit McLaren. The McLaren IT team will then review all applications and a short list of individuals will be invited to progress through giving an innovative presentation on the subject of “how a few selected areas of information technology disruption could dramatically improve McLaren’s business performance”. 


The Benefits

The internship will be based at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey where you will work within the Information Technology team of the McLaren Technology Group.


In addition to the internship experience at McLaren, successful candidates will have an opportunity to discuss future employment options at McLaren following their graduation.


The Essentials

We are looking for great IT skills so we would expect you to be in your penultimate year (2nd year of a 3 year course, or 3rd year of a 4 year course) of study on a technology based subject, have an aptitude and passion for technology as well as how it can be practically applied in business situations.  We are looking for an innovative streak with a desire to disrupt the norms and a willingness to learn and take on new challenges.


The Process


Please apply direct through submitting your application along with CV and covering letter.


Applications accepted until 12th February 2018. We will review submissions from February onwards, so don’t delay. Internships are expected to run between June and September.

We very much look forward to your application and ideas. Good luck with your submissions.
