Type Approval Engineer
£33,242 - £36,565
Bristol and Nuneaton
Would you like to work on a wide range of vehicles and with some of the biggest names in the automotive industry? Do you have engineering experience with technical expertise? If you said 'yes' to both these questions, we have the opportunity for you.
We work at the forefront of vehicle technology, discussing and interpreting technologies and standards that affect the vehicles of today and tomorrow.
We will provide you with the chance to apply your technical expertise to a wide range of vehicles and call upon your areas of speciality. You'll liaise with manufacturers to obtain technical specifications, agree and carry out the test programme, write technical test reports and produce the approval documentation. This will involve everything from appraising facilities, undertaking engineering assessments and dealing with queries to providing technical advice.
There will also be opportunities to travel, including overseas for up to four weeks (if required), and progress your career into a variety of other areas in the future. At the same time, you'll enjoy the excellent training and development.
You'll be capable of prioritising your own workload, communicating confidently with customers and adapting to changing priorities.
