It’s not every day you come across high-performance versions of existing models, luxury bespoke commissions, heritage models or individually tailored vehicles that set pulses racing. Unless you join us at Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Operations (SO).

Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) are a key part of the SO organisation delivering special products that amplify our core brand values in Ultimate Luxury (SVAutobiography), Ultimate Sports Performance (SVR) and Ultimate All-Terrain Capability (SVX).

We are currently looking for a Chassis Brakes Engineer to join our world-class team. In this role, you’ll be required to draw on experience of taking complex chassis commodities through the technical gateway process from initial concept to production so as to support our major SVO programmes and deliver high-performance brake systems. Achieving this will see you work as part of a small team and alongside other functions.

In addition to delivering brake commodities, you’ll derive technical specifications for one or more components and contribute towards supplier selection and supplier relationship management, also aiming to develop a close working relationship with key suppliers.

Being flexible in your work approach, you’ll lead problem resolution sessions and reach compatible cross-functional solutions, as well as working on and leading a varying degree of Jaguar Land Rover chassis brakes products if required. You’ll report out technical issues in key technical meetings, ensuring components hit key engineering requirements and programme targets, and will support development of system strategies. Finally, you’ll also manage the resolution of quality issues identified by internal and external indicators.


As the Chassis Brakes Engineer, you’ll have a proficient level of knowledge of brake component engineering, testing and processes as well as experience in chassis component or system delivery. You’ll also be an effective communicator possessing strong team-working skills and the ability to analyse data, including PC skills with software such as MS Excel, Word and PowerPoint.

Ideally, you’ll be familiar with engineering release and change management systems with additional experience in WERS, AIMs, RMDV, APQP, iPLM and PSW processes. It is also desired that you’ll have a minimum Class 2 + GPA driving licence and, though not essential, knowledge of CATIA V5, DIGIBUCK, VisMockUp and Teamcenter. Rounding out your skill set with experience of problem-solving tools e.g. 6 panel, PPS (8D), FMEA, Robustness, etc. combined with the ability to lead problem resolution initiatives would be highly advantageous.


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.
