REQ ID: 36132
JOB TITLE: Supplier Risk Management Lead
SALARY: £38,600-£45,000
LOCATION: Coventry


Beyond Property, Purchasing, HR and IT, more than being part of our Finance or Marketing teams, beyond even Sales and Service, every role in every business area offers unique opportunities to make an impact on the future of mobility and the automotive industry.





The Supplier Risk team is a function within Purchasing Transformation and Operations tasked with monitoring the financial and operational stability of suppliers to Jaguar Land Rover. Your role will require a high level of interaction internally as well as a heavy continual flow of high level of communication with external parties. The role is strategic, starting at the sourcing stage, and continuing through to supplier assessment via regular credit rating and other reviews whilst parts are in production.


The team also monitors a sub-set of suppliers for Special Vehicle Operations, Non- Production and Aftermarket. The key objective is to use triggers to proactively analyse the risks faced by suppliers based on their status (for example supplying run-out models) or their location (for example based on current local economic conditions) and use that to minimise the risk of parts supply being disrupted by insolvency or other credit risks. “At Risk” suppliers are identified and buyers are engaged as and when necessary. Pro-active business partnering ensures that buyers consider the appropriate actions required to mitigate the risk of disruption to the production line, and in the event of a supplier administration, technical advice is provided for whichever location that supplier is in.


In your role as a Supplier Risk lead, you'll report “at risk” suppliers to Purchasing Senior Management on an ad hoc basis as required and at the monthly REDS meeting, preparing the agenda, managing the meeting and issuing minutes/actions.


You'll work effectively with buyers to help mitigate risk, attend monthly management meetings and work with cross-functional teams to make clear and effective decisions to reduce risk, guide buyers at times of supplier distress (administration), ensuring that the correct procedures are followed and that all parties are up to date with developments.


You'll also lead in the preparation and updating of training material and assist in the presentation and provide support in the delivery of the supplier risk training to buyers and undertake supplier financial review at the sourcing stage, using records from Companies House (and overseas equivalents), credit rating providers and suppliers’ own data




You'll have excellent business collaborating and communication skills, with the ability to present clearly and confidently to Senior Management and cross-functional groups. You'll naturally have exceptional stakeholder and relationship management skills and the ability to be highly organised and continually maintain a high level of focus on the detail. You'll also have project management and continuous improvement experience with the ability to read and manipulate financial data.


Jaguar Land Rover considers that this role does not meet the criteria to be considered within the Home Office Shortage Occupation list.  Therefore, Jaguar Land Rover will not support an application for visa sponsorship and all applicants for this role must have an unrestricted right to work for an indefinite period in the UK.




Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.


Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
