GRADUATE SUPPLY CHAIN

Supply Chain Graduate Programme

Duration: 2 years

In reimagining everything we do, we’re on our way to enabling the most connected, end-to-end supply chain in the industry: one that efficiently, flexibly and competitively delivers the future of movement.

We’re doing that by leveraging advanced digital tools, working years in advance of new vehicle launch, enabling operational readiness, focusing on sustainability and putting the circular economy at the heart of decision-making. Key to all of that is working with and supporting our global network of over 1,000 suppliers, collaborating with colleagues in Sales & Marketing and across the business, and managing £multi-million contracts.

Graduates here get hands on experience of driving innovation, managing everything from availability of parts in the right quantity, to optimising the journey they take from factory to showroom. It’s a dynamic environment that offers exceptional opportunities for creativity, meaningful work and to enable next-generation luxury that’s also sustainable.

WHERE YOU COULD BE WORKING

SUPPLY CHAIN OPERATIONS & LOGISTICS

At the heart of what we do, Supply Chain Operations drive everything from production planning to finished vehicle delivery. Your challenge, supported by and working with your team, is to get the best performance from our suppliers and logistics providers.

NEW PRODUCT & LAUNCH

New vehicle and engine programmes are the future of the business. Here, you’ll develop the expertise essential to managing complex projects and defining objectives, timing and budgets. Taking concepts from desktop to industrialisation is just one of the professional rewards.

SUPPLY CHAIN PLANNING

Joining the team that plays a critical role in maximising our new vehicle sales revenue, you’ll get involved with and learn skills in capacity planning and vehicle scheduling. You’ll also help to play a critical role in owning and orchestrating our Sales & Operations Execution (S&OE) and Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) processes.

Meet some apprentices

Raisa

Raisa
Maintenance Apprentice

“I chose Jaguar Land Rover because the structured and detailed Apprenticeship programme really appealed to me and my working style.”

I’m a Maintenance Engineer in my second year of the Advanced Manufacturing Apprenticeship Pathway. I was looking at a variety of apprenticeships, but I chose Jaguar Land Rover because they are one of Britain’s largest car manufacturers and the structured and detailed apprenticeship programme really appealed to me and my working style. One of the greatest aspects of being on any of the apprenticeship programmes, is the support you get to succeed. I started with a year at the training provider at Aston, but my development has only increased since being on-site in Solihull.

Ezra

Ezra
Design Engineer

“With self-driving vehicles becoming a reality, we’ll be looking at how people will make the most of their time in the car. My job is to continue to design cars that create experiences that customers love.””

As strange as this sounds, I didn’t know much about the world of engineering until a group of Jaguar Land Rover apprentices came into my school to talk about what they do. I was amazed that engineering was really suited to my skillset. And I realised that creative thinking and problem solving are exactly what is needed to do well as an apprentice here. I’ve been here three years now, working as a Design Engineer, and it has been harder than I thought, but the support is incredible. And the network of other apprentices is huge. There’s always someone who will listen to you and so many people you can learn from.

Kenneth

Kenneth
Connected Car Integration Engineer

“I chose Jaguar Land Rover because it’s a Great British Brand and I came here because I wanted to write code.”

It’s so exciting! 5G technology, streams of data and advanced cloud and server based platforms are allowing me to help our cars adapt in the moment to drive efficiency for the customer. Whether that’s predicting when a car needs to warm the seats or start up, or when an engine needs to change performance to match the conditions it’s driving in. Not to mention how we update battery range or infotainment systems in the blink of an eye.
