Don’t just take our word for it…

The professional and personal growth I have experienced over the last 2 years at Lotus has been invaluable. I have spent time in both Engineering and Commercial departments which has broadened my understanding of the automotive industry. I have been able to closely follow and work on the same projects throughout different areas of the company, see their development from initial concept to the final product, coming to life. This has been an ideal environment (for a rookie like me!) enabling me to find my true vocation. I am thankful to all the Lotus family and honoured to be a part of the team.
