The McLaren Work Experience Programme

Each year, we endeavour to offer a very limited number of week long work experience placements to school pupils. Preference will be given to those who attend schools in the immediate vicinity of a McLaren facility. Pupils should demonstrate an interest in a future career in the sector of the McLaren Company applied to.

For example, we would expect those seeking an opportunity in an Engineering division to have a genuine interest in Mathematics and Science, and to be considering a future career in Engineering.

Due to the nature of our business, we can usually only accept placements between the months of May to July.

Regrettably, due to the volume of interest, we are unable to respond to individual work experience enquiries or deal with such queries via the telephone.

Closing date for applications: 31 January 2015.
