Who’d have thought that during my time on the graduate scheme, I’d be involved in a project that saved the business over £250,000?

HARRY, COMMODITY BUYER – EXTERIOR TRIM (PURCHASING GRADUATE)

CORPORATE GRADUATE OPPORTUNITIES

Our graduate opportunities offer the perfect blend of personal and professional development. Network with other graduates, build relationships across the entire business, and watch your career grow. To make sure your programme is dynamic and engaging, we have a dedicated graduate development team, who will be working to design, update and develop a range of learning experiences for you.

Some of these will build up your technical expertise and enable you to perform confidently in your business area and role. Others will prepare you for your career after the scheme ends. You’ll also take part in training to help you understand yourself, others, and gain insight into our business. From the start, we’ll provide you with support specifically tailored to your role.

Our programmes

Analytics

A two-year course that sharpens your skills by combining on-the-job and classroom training. You’ll become certified in the latest analytics tools in your first year, while working with teams across the business on real projects and transformational programmes. Your second will go into even greater depth, developing you in one of four specialisms (Data Analytics, Data Engineer, Data Scientist, Programme/Project Management). You’ll also go on secondment and mentor new graduates.

Any degree is acceptable for this programme.

Information Technology

Every day, we experiment with new technologies. Transformation is a continuous process, so our IT projects will always evolve and engage you. You’ll experience everything from Business Partnering and IT Architecture to Information Security, Technology Solutions and Functional Support. This is an immersive role in which you can really make an impact.

Degree requirements include IT or Computer Science.

Supplier Technical Assistance

Supplier Technical Assistance (STA) works as a key link between the suppliers of components for our cars, anything from wheels to windscreens, and the rest of the business. Within STA your aim will be to drive manufacturing excellence into this supply base by working with suppliers and other key stakeholders within areas of the organisation. Problem solving and using your manufacturing expertise will be vital to assist in producing parts to the required quality and volume.

Within STA there are a number of varied roles spanning the whole lifetime of a vehicle programme from support for new vehicle launches through to warranty for customers’ cars, including the opportunity to work on fan favourites and Special Vehicle Operations. You could find yourself moving from supporting vehicle audits in-plant to managing critical suppliers and reporting out at a senior level.

Degree requirements include Engineering, Material Science, Manufacturing and STEM.

These programmes are now closed for our 2020 intake, we will be open again in September 2020 for our 2021 intake.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

To be eligible for our graduate programmes, you need to have obtained or be on track for a 2:2 degree qualification. Additionally, please make only one application for our graduate programmes. Be sure to read all the information carefully and apply to the one position that aligns most with your qualifications, skills, experience and interests.

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

At Jaguar Land Rover, the learning never stops. We believe that life gets better when you learn new skills. That is why we are committed to lifelong learning. We encourage every one of our employees to extend their skills and knowledge through a range of first class programmes.

You can gain any qualification you dare to. These schemes make people’s lives better, enhance careers and are vital in shaping the future of the company.

It is essential that people are curious about things and take their own development seriously, in order to be better equipped to move into different roles, projects or career paths. The value of our people lies in their continued development and in our commitment to invest in their learning and growth in order that they can optimise their performance, whatever their role.

An essential ingredient in our success is the creation of an environment where managers actively share what they are learning and encourage others to grow and where they coach and mentor others to maximise their team’s performance. That’s why we are building The Jaguar Land Rover Learning Academy; a home for lifelong learning. We are creating engaging, relevant and personalised learning content and experiences that can impact personal, team and organisational performance. Here, we are seeking to enable people to learn, create, grow and to support others to do the same; daring each other to embrace the changes and the challenges we face and ensure our future is bright.

REWARDS AND BENEFITS

Your starting salary will be £29,000, with a £2,000 joining bonus. Our benefits package includes:

  • Mentoring and coaching from industry-leading experts
  • Personal development plan tailored to your ambitions
  • Graduate Community socials and events
  • Pension scheme
  • Privilege car purchase scheme
  • 26 days’ holiday allowance
  • Access to gyms, crèches and numerous other on-site facilities
  • Support to gain professional accreditation

During the Graduate Programme, you’ll need to become a member of a relevant Chartered or Professional Institute. This is based on your business area and for this, additional qualifications may be required. Jaguar Land Rover will support you in this, but we ask that you sign a learning contract.

If you choose to leave the Programme while completing the qualification, or the business within two years of obtaining it, you will be liable to repay the costs undertaken by the Company in supporting you through the qualification.

“I always wanted to work with cars because I wanted to have an impact on how cars interact with society and how we can change the impact we have on the environment.”

The freedom you get here is great. I’ve been encouraged to go and meet new people, explore possibilities and try new things. What I’ve seen here has really opened my eyes. The investment in R&D is incredible. And the level of detail we go into blows my mind. One of my favourite events is the weekly Electrical Graduate Breakfast Forum. This is where apprentices, graduates and undergraduates all get together to talk about the challenges we are working on and share hints and tips. It’s a brilliant networking opportunity and a great way to build your knowledge and career.

“For me Jaguar Land Rover is the perfect blend of passionate people in a supportive culture, all with a clear aim to change the way the world moves.”

The induction day really set the tone for what it’s like to work here. The presenter on the day told us that more will happen in the automotive industry in the next five years than the last 50 years! I’m an undergraduate on a years’ placement. I’ve only been here for eight weeks, but I’ve seen so much that brings that statement to life. I’ve seen how our commitment to making sure every new Jaguar Land Rover model line will be electrified from 2020 is being brought to life in everything we do.
