It's a uniquely wonderful time to join us here at Lotus Tech Creative Centre. Following the Launch of the Lotus Eletre, we have a range of fabulous products in the pipeline. We want to create a new species of vehicle that marries exquisite design with superb vehicle architecture. We need someone who truly understands both and align both the priorities of design and engineering.
Studio engineering in LTCC needs to support a broader remit of vehicle design development that encompasses advanced vehicle architecture, design concept innovation and technology implementation.
LPDS will shift the emphasis of programmes to give greater strategic importance to the advanced phase. Design’s contribution to these phases needs to be robust and support the aspirations of the brand with feasible and progressive design led vehicle solutions.
A Head of Concept Engineering role builds on the established reputation of studio engineering in LTCC but moves the offering to a broader and more holistic position.
The role of Head of Concept Engineering is responsible for the technical development and delivery of vehicle technical content. The role will head the department within the studio that creates whole vehicle technical concepts as a foundation for design and acts as the conduit between vehicle engineering and manufacturing teams in the broader Group Lotus business. Studio Engineering and technical programme content liaison are integral parts of the Design Concept Engineering department.
The preferred candidate would have extensive technical experience from either a studio engineering or vehicle concept engineering background.
They should have experienced managing teams across multiple workstreams.
They should be able to demonstrate a proven track record in delivering vehicles to production.
The candidate is expected to contribute strategically for both programmes and LTCC as a business.
Can demonstrate soft skills of negotiation and stakeholder relationship management
