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.




Suspension. Engine mounts. Wheels and tyres. To provide an exceptional driving experience, every chassis component needs be honed to perfection. That takes all kinds of people, from designers to project managers.


The Suspension Systems Tuning (SST) Team resides within the Chassis Engineering function and leads the design, development and delivery of this chassis systems. SST are responsible for systems such as Active Roll Control, Adaptive Dynamics, Air Suspension, Active Suspension, and passive systems. It is the vision of the SST team is to increase the use of CAE modelling to improve the robustness and timing of engineering design decisions and to minimise reliance on physical testing.


As the CAE Development Engineer you’ll play an essential part in enabling SST to make greater use of virtual models and techniques earlier in the development cycle. You’ll be responsible for the creation, correlation and delivery of component and system virtual models and the associated test methods required for driving engineering decisions.


You’ll work with test engineers to perform physical (vehicle and rig) testing to generate data for correlation of CAE models. Using this data you’ll then scope, plan and conduct CAE tests and perform data analysis. In addition to this, you’ll support the development of CAE tools, best practices, and will present at design reviews with key stakeholders.





As an experienced engineer you’ll have working knowledge of CAE methodologies, experience using 1D modelling tools (preferably MATLab/Simulink or AMESim) and you’ll have the ability to interrogate physical and virtual test data to support and make engineering decisions.


It will be advantageous if you’ve knowledge of vehicle dynamics, NVH, off road capability and reliability attributes or good knowledge of chassis systems.


It is anticipated that you’ll be degree educated in a relevant engineering subject and that you’ll show high levels of drive, motivation and strong presentation skills.




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.
