Extreme E

The NEOM McLaren Extreme E Team entered Extreme E in 2022 with Tanner Foust and Emma Gilmour, McLaren Racing’s first female driver in its 60-year history.

Extreme E is an innovative all-electric off-road series, which aims to use the power of racing for a greater good. Its focus is raising climate awareness by racing in remote locations as well as promoting diversity, by insisting that all teams consist of a male and female driver.

Extreme E is one of five racing series McLaren Racing competes in, including Formula E, Formula 1, IndyCar and esports.

This role forms part of the Racing for All Initiative which is open to those with less than one year’s professional motorsport experience, to enable them to learn exactly what it takes to be part of a professional race team, providing a first step on the career ladder in a competitive industry. The successful candidate would be featured in public content to spread awareness of the initiative and work being done to reduce barriers and attract those who might not otherwise have this opportunity. Particularly those who are female, minority ethnic, or from a lower socio-economic background, are encouraged to apply.
