What to expect


The role is to author and maintain Engineering standards for customer related features for the lighting team of Body Engineering.  The author will be an integral member of the core lighting team and produce new standards on their behalf.  The author will liaise with the appropriate functions throughout the company to ensure that relevant and necessary information is captured for dissemination to project teams.

Where appropriate, the standards author will be required to ‘force’ the new or updated requirements into existing RMDV2 programmes.
