WHAT TO EXPECT

When it comes to the future, our Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (AME) team is planning it today. Regularly working up to three years ahead of production, they help translate, plan and implement Product Development outputs into vehicle manufacture, transforming our ambitious plans into tangible and exhilarating realities.

From the luxuriously agile Jaguar F-TYPE to the innovative CX-17, our vehicles – famed for the revolutionary technologies they employ – are amongst some of the most desired and revered in the world today. Your constant challenge, working as part of our diverse and multi-skilled AME team, will be to ensure our iconic brands continue to captivate the world tomorrow.

The Global Manufacturing Innovation (GMI) team is a new department within the Manufacturing Business Office (MBO) whose purpose is to deliver innovative, cutting edge manufacturing technologies and processes required to address high hurts, new product features, improved manufacturing efficiencies and ensure Jaguar Land Rover manufacturing is informed and prepared for the company's future manufacturing needs; focused on driving and delivering a world-class manufacturing approach.

The Industrial Digital Hub (IDH) is a state of the art centre housed within the new National Automotive Innovation Centre, tasked with delivering the digital twin to Jaguar Land Rover. The Hub will enhance and replace the physical world, and create an environment that will provide a simulated manufacturing experience; enabling digitisation of the design, engineering and manufacturing process from concept to customer.

The IDH requires a talented and inspiring team that is flexible, agile and passionate about the virtual world. As the Visualisation and Operations Engineer, you’ll cover a wide range of activities; from creating geometry, organising and operations, demonstrating solutions and supporting IDH development, to assisting projects and supporting the IDH working model. There’s opportunity for real career development, whist playing an active role in the future of Jaguar Land Rover.

You’ll support the development of virtual environments, along with project delivery and facility operations, and progress visualisation through research and innovation, all the while playing a key part in the ongoing development of the IDH.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Passionate about seeking new challenges and enthusiastic about the future of automotive, you’ll be eager to research future technologies by drawing on your creative and innovative mind. You’ll also be a driven and proactive person, with a motivating and collaborative approach.

Good knowledge of Unreal and Unity; Autodesk 3D Studio Max; Programming knowledge; and Adobe Creative Suite is essential, and you’ll be competent with Microsoft Office too. You’ll also be expected to have CAD training; be media or game design educated, and bring Virtual, Augmented and immersive knowledge. It would be beneficial to have an understanding of Automotive but this is not essential. Finally, you’ll regularly travel between sites so a flexible approach is a must.

BENEFITS

Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you will find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team. Our employees have access to a privilege car purchase scheme, membership of a competitive pension plan, performance related bonus scheme and 26 days holiday entitlement. 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.
