We don’t build cars, we enable cars to be built.  Combining technical know-how with hands-on expertise, our engineers define the processes and facilities needed to achieve production objectives.

Nissan engineers support all areas of the manufacturing operation, ensuring seamless production of over 500,000 cars every year. Engineering is a key function offering a full spectrum of hands-on roles; combining practical engineering with project coordination and cross-functional teamwork.

Truly embedded into the production process, engineers enjoy a mixture of desk based work such as CAD & specification writing, alongside real-world activities such as line trails and equipment buy offs. We continually question methods, seek areas to improve and identify creative alternatives.

Engineering Graduate Programme

We value our engineers very much; they provide support to our manufacturing team, ensuring the seamless production of 500,000 cars per year through the precise designation of processes and facilities and continual operational improvement.
