Using state-of-the-art facilities, you’ll provide the power behind our vehicles working in our Powertrain Engineering team. You'll find the ideal balance between performance and sustainability while responding to the environmental issues that shape our industry.

This role will focus on the component and system delivery of all internally designed engines, which are intended for UK and global manufacture. As a Lead Engineer, you’ll be responsible for leading a cross-functional team as well as delivering all engineering design, verification and launch activities.

The role demands strong technical and commercial leadership combined with a versatile approach to the changing circumstances within programmes and the ability to manage conflicting priorities between programmes in a positive and proactive manner. Delivering on plan with clear direction and balancing attribute trade-offs whilst considering the programme deliverables on quality, cost, weight, function and timing are also critical aspects of the role.


As the successful candidate, you’ll possess a solid understanding of electromechanical or mechanical systems, especially within Powertrain. You'll also have a record of building and managing multiple internal and external relationships in complex stakeholder environments along with practical experience of planning, coordination, delivery and reporting of requirements to support programmes. Prior knowledge of quality and supplier management tools is therefore essential.

It is expected you’ll be a results-driven individual who demonstrates, tenacity, drive and perseverance and who has the ability to deliver in a complex and highly demanding environment. Ideally, you’ll also be an effective communicator and influencer, and as such you should come to this role with strong interpersonal and engagement skills so as to feel at ease interfacing with various groups within the business.


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.
