An ever-evolving heritage. A truly exciting future. Two of the world’s most iconic brands. Jaguar Land Rover is revered across the globe. Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, we set the standards others want to follow. We want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.

LOCATION: Whitley, West Midlands and Mira, Nuneaton


Quality is what we stand for. We manufacture premium vehicles to the highest quality standard and to delivery schedules set out by the logistics and planning functions, which are driven by customer demand.

In your role as a Project Control Leader, you’ll join our brand-new Project Control and Diagnosis team in forming a centralised activity to define customer warranty problems in a way that resolving teams can understand, thus enabling them to act fast. The information gained from a data-defined input to our team is used to generate deeper investigation cross-functionally and throughout the world as necessary. The team also operate a Diagnosis Centre comprising its own workshops and offices based at MIRA, Nuneaton, where they can replicate failures and test parts working collaboratively with suppliers and engineers.

The Project Control and Diagnosis teams are divided into three sub-teams, each of them designated to one of the three main vehicle architectures: D7a, D7u and D8. Your role will be to lead problem-solving analysis and standard problem definition creation using problem-solving techniques, which must define where the issues lie and will allow you to recommend a resolution. You’ll also lead the team to conduct manufacturing process audits in plants, retailers or suppliers, and you’ll lead projects which include Process Analyses, Process Capability, Control Plans, Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Drawings and Specifications, FMEA (Failure Mode and Effects Analysis), PFMEA and Control Plan. In addition, you’ll participate in the development and refinement of design and process FMEAs.


For your role as a Project Control Leader, you’ll have experience of working in a manufacturing environment and possess a strong knowledge of Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), Production Part Approval Process (PPAP), Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA), 8D Disciplines, 5 Why’s and Pareto Analysis. You’ll understand the methodology of project management and will have ideally worked or led multiple projects. It is vital that you’ll also have an up-to-date driving licence and will be flexible to work across the UK, particularly between our MIRA and Whitley sites.


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 a 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.
