Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team is offering the incredible opportunity to join the team as a Team Principal Consultant, learning how a team at the top of its game works behind-the-scenes.

Official Engineering Partner Modis and the team, who are currently leading the 2021 team standings, are searching for a talented individual to join for nine-months to absorb and learn what it takes to run a successful Formula E Team.

The exciting position is open to tech and engineering students, graduates or anyone with a technical background who is looking to make an exciting move into motorsport, and offers the chance to be at the heart of the sustainable future of motorsports for one season.

Working alongside Team Principal Ian James, and based at the team’s HQ in Brackley, this dream role also offers the opportunity for frequent international travel and weekend races in locations including Rome, New York and Berlin.

“These are not easy to find, particularly in such a competitive field as Formula E.

OPINION: The departure of Audi from Formula E meant its long-time driver Lucas di Grassi would need to find a new berth to stay on the grid. His deal at Venturi Racing will ensure the championship's first-ever race winner will remain competitive into the final year of the current Gen2 ruleset - although it may not be a long-term fit

OPINION: With Audi's Formula E exit imminent, it had nothing to lose in London by attempting to vault Lucas di Grassi into the lead by pitting him under the safety car.
