Infiniti and the Renault Sport F1 team are hiring. Here's how to apply.
For the past four years, the Infiniti Engineering Academy has offered what any car-crazed engineering student considers to be a lifetime opportunity: a 12-month internship working on automotive and F1 technologies. The application process has just been opened for 2017. "We are very excited to offer seven engineering students from different regions the possibility to join this technically rich, multi-discipline and multi-cultural engineering placement," says Infiniti's Global Director of Motorsport, Tommaso Volpe.
Only one student, however, will be chosen from the US, and he or she will join six other young engineers from the other participating regions, Asia and Oceania, Canada, China, Europe, Mexico, and the Middle East. All seven will be required to move to the UK for the gig, and it comes with many additional perks other than working with world-class engineers.
Travel and accommodation, an Infiniti company car and a salary are all included. Even once the 12-month internship is over, there's still a chance, provided you've proven yourself, to become a full-time employee with Infiniti and the Renault Sport Formula One team. Any young engineers interested? Start the application process by heading to the Infiniti Academy website, where applicants will do an online engineering puzzle test as the first stage of the recruitment process. The best 10 applicants will be invited to partake in a final event this summer.
