Senior Engineer

“It’s incredible to think that six years ago I first saw the Qashqai on a computer screen; now I see them drive past me every day. I can see the parts I influenced and that gives me an enormous sense of pride.”

After completing Nissan placement and graduate schemes, Tom had the opportunity to spend two years in Japan working with teams designing the all-new Nissan Qashqai. He now leads the team he worked with, responsible for a multi-million pound investment to design the next generation of Nissan all-electric vehicles. It’s a big responsibility but one that brings an immense sense of pride and job satisfaction.
