WHAT TO EXPECT 
 

This position gives the applicant an opportunity to secure a place within the Jaguar Product Engineering team. Forming a key part of Jaguar Land Rover's Reimagine strategy, this small and nimble team is tasked with delivering the next generation of Jaguar all-electric vehicles.

  • Aligning designs and plans with non-engineering functions including Marketing, Purchasing, Finance, Aftersales and Service.
  • Working with external engineering teams and suppliers to deliver world-class designs and components.

 

What you will need
 
Essential

  • Experience in project management of complex projects within a technical industry
  • Fantastic communication skills – delivering clear and concise information to all levels and areas of the business.
  • Strong teamwork and leadership – building strong working networks and bringing individuals and teams together. Leading the way through complex challenges to overcome any obstacle.

All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

This role may offer the opportunity for hybrid working where you can split your time between working from home and in the office.
