Graduate Jobs with Williams F1

Williams F1 Graduate Jobs, as well as Industrial Placements, are based at the F1 team’s home in Grove, Oxfordshire. A very limited number of roles are sometimes available in either the Racing Division or the Advanced Engineering Division.

The Williams name has been synonymous with top-level motorsport since the 1960s. Team patron Frank Williams first founded Frank Williams Racing Cars in 1966. The company first entered F1 in 1969 with Piers Courage behind the wheel.

Frank went on to establish Williams Grand Prix Engineering with British engineer Patrick Head in 1977. The company has since won 16 FIA Formula One World Championship titles, nine for constructors and seven for drivers. This makes Williams F1 the 3rd most successful team in F1.

While Williams F1 Graduate Jobs require no explanation, not many people will know much about Williams Advanced Engineering. This is the engineering consultancy arm of the Williams group and it provides world class innovation in engineering and technology, operational performance, testing and manufacturing services. Williams Advanced Engineering operates in a range of sectors including Automotive, Motorsport, Civil Aerospace, Defence, Healthcare, Sports Science, as well as Energy.

Graduate roles with Williams Advanced Engineering may be very similar in many ways to Williams F1 Graduate Jobs. However, while Williams F1 Graduate Jobs will clearly be focused on the company’s participation in F1, graduates with Williams Advanced Engineering may work on a variety of different projects for a range of external companies. The Advanced Engineering division offers a highly-specialised and responsive service in the following areas:

  • Aerodynamics and Thermodynamics
  • High Performance Hybrid & EV Systems
  • Lightweight Structures
  • Specialist Low Volume Product Delivery
  • Dynamics
  • Operational Performance Consulting

The skills and experience required for roles with Advanced Engineering are also very similar to those required for most Williams F1 Graduate Jobs.

Williams is based on a Technology Campus in Grove, Oxfordshire, in the heart of the UK’s Motor Valley.
