ICE Powertrain Graduate

Apply now Job no: 510580
Work type: Graduate Position
Location: Gaydon, Warwickshire
Categories: Powertrain

As our ICE Powertrain Graduate, you’ll be a valued member of the Powertrain team. As part of your role, you’ll be responsible for the design and development of components in CAD, ensuring that they meet the required standards and objectives. Your remit would include working independently on complete systems, running simplified simulations, and conducting simple calculations using simulation tools.


You’ll be responsible for creating 3D/2D CAD designs using Siemens PLM TeamCentre & NX Software, ensuring that they meet failure mode avoidance, and design for manufacture, service, and logistical requirements. Additionally, you will be involved in creating, checking, and approving engineering drawings, ensuring the correct application of GD&T/quality and AML drafting standards.


You're not the type to shy away from time constraints and conflicting priorities. Your proactive and self-motivated nature will assist you to hit the ground running. Your exceptional ability to communicate enables you to summarise concisely and articulately, within a fast-paced environment. 


To you, this role is about being able to work independently, while also being an effective team player. You are looking for a role where you can excel and have the opportunity to showcase your Unity, Courage, and Openness values. 


In this role, you’ll be given the chance to work independently and take on responsibilities that align with your skillset and career development. This role is a perfect fit for someone self-motivated, resilient, and a great communicator.


The Key Requirements...

  • Mechanical degree or similar
  • Ideally, studying fluid thermal dynamic
  • You’ll already have a good understanding of what a car is and how it works
  • Ideally, a Formula student
  • Your Hobbies will have a technical bias
  • You have a good understanding of simulation tools



Joining Aston Martin, you'll be part of a business that is working towards becoming the world's most desirable ultra-luxury British performance brand. But no one builds an Aston Martin on their own. Behind these legends and landmarks are hundreds of dreamers, darers, and doers who make extraordinary things happen, every single day. That's why the name of everyone who has ever worn our famous wings is inscribed on the wall of our factory.


Your future within this role will be exciting and full of opportunities for career progression. There could be a possibility for you to be the first design engineer of the new components and deliver the complete system in the future. You can progress into a more simulation-focused role with a physical understanding of the vehicle and have a great overview of everything or you can specialise in something more specific. 


Here at Aston Martin, our mission is to embark on an exciting new era for the business. We are striving to become the world's most desirable ultra-luxury British brand. We believe in our purpose and are proud of our over 110 years of making the most exquisitely addictive performance sports cars. To achieve our goal, we need the very best people to write their own chapter on our journey.
