Senior SQA Engineer - New Projects

Location: Woking, GB

At McLaren Automotive our vision is not only to become the iconic sports car manufacturer but also to deliver breathtaking, iconic and innovative new technology to the automotive industry.

We recognise that we can only achieve our vision with the dedication and collaboration of our world class employees.  It is our mission to become the employer of choice within the global automotive industry.

The automotive sector is going through an immense change with a focus on lightweight, low emission and high performance and McLaren Automotive are embracing this change. This economic shift presents an opportunity to introduce new technology and materials.

Our desire to become better, faster, lighter and more efficient runs throughout our organisation and everything we do, so each car we produce is better than the last.

Our SQA team is divided into 3 teams, onsite – who are responsible for immediate containments and are the first point of contact in series production. We have an offsite team, who are responsible for the supply base and divided by commodity. Last but no means least we have the new projects team, who are responsible for delivering the total vehicle PPAP in line with McLaren development timing.

This team play a vital role in ensuring our suppliers meet and exceed our expectations when it comes to the quality of our products.

We are now looking to recruit Senior and qualified level SQA Engineers, to join our new model team, supporting our function groups with their respective complex parts, including new technologies and large program content change eg Hybrid, Composites, and BIW.

Acting as subject matter experts you will work actively with suppliers and McLaren Engineers on various tasks such as DFM, simultaneous engineering, measurement strategy, parts quality maturation issues and challenging tooling lead times to achieve project targets. In parallel will also be responsible for training and mentoring newer team members.

Championing the APQP tool, you will manage the gap between SQA and function groups – leading pre-gateway reviews and attending meetings as an SQA representative.

This is an extremely exciting role as you will be part of the new projects team and will be exposed to new technology and content way before the function groups being the design and development stages. This is a great opportunity to be exposed to a number of teams in the business, as you will be expected to network and report throughout and support the respective managers within the SQA new model team. 

This will be a demanding role as there is a number of projects in development, with more to come, that will need your support to deliver, as we continue our journey through our track25 business plan.

As our company grows, so do our employees – we take your career development seriously. We offer a catalogue of training available to all our employees such as classroom-based excel courses to influencing workshops and much more.

As part of the McLaren Group, there are a wide range of benefits to take advantage of, such as childcare vouchers, flexible working (depending on role), generous holiday allowance, contributory pension, executive car lease scheme, onsite gymnasium and swimming pool and a subsidised restaurant, plus a lot more. Not to mention discounts on the McLaren store and our partner organisations.

At McLaren Automotive we are constantly looking to improve. To become the employer of choice we are always looking to develop our employee offerings. We currently offer a range of benefits to employees at all levels of the business including Private Healthcare, Contributory Pension Scheme, Life Assurance, Personal Lease Car Schemes, subsidised restaurant and onsite Gym. We also offer a range of discounts with our partner organisations.
