be responsible for liaising with the Polestar R&D Function Groups and external suppliers to ensure

• Travel to the supply base to prevent delays (where appropriate).
• Track and lead issue resolution activities for the prototype fleet.
• Plan activities in order to fulfil the requirements of the company’s engineering timing
release system, considering timing dependencies with other systems where necessary.

The Person
• Experience working in/for medium volume vehicle projects would be advantageous.
• Excellent communication and co-ordination skills - at ease working with a cross-functional
team of engineers and suppliers.
• Flexible, enthusiastic individual who is self-motivated, able to work well under own
initiative and remain focused under pressure.
• Diligent, attention to detail, able to work confidently with high volumes of data
• Proficient use of Microsoft Office
• Ability to prioritise workload & manage external inputs/requests

This role is offered on a fixed-term basis of 6-9 months duration, with an equivalent annual salary of

of compensation (this role has been determined with an inside-IR35 status).
