Zurich, September 12, 2023 — Akkodis today launched Lead the Charge, a sustainability and talent program which will offer a truly unique opportunity for one candidate to work within the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team across the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship season. The program is designed to encourage young tech-professionals to advance sustainability through data analytics and technology.

As a global Smart Industry leader, Akkodis is working with the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Team to help the team achieve its commitment to Net Zero. Both organizations understand that achieving this commitment will require incredible people, the best technology, and creative minds. Together, both partners are providing the opportunity for one selected candidate to make a tangible difference in pursuit of the team’s sustainability goals.

Graduates or anyone with a technical background and a passion for sustainability and motorsports are encouraged to apply for the role.

This program, launched in 2021 with Mercedes-EQ Formula E Team and continuing in 2022 with the Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, is now in its third year of providing young talent with career opportunities within both motorsports and Akkodis.

Toto Wolff, Team Principal & CEO, Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team said, “We’re delighted to announce this opportunity with our partner, Akkodis. We are committed to our sustainability journey and Akkodis will play a key part in this by connecting us with talented individuals who want to shape the future.
