Controls and Calibration Engineer

“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.


Women in Engineering Sponsorship Scheme

“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.
