Group Leader - High Voltage Battery System Engineering


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.


The successful candidate for the above role will retain their current employer, i.e. if you are a Jaguar
employee you will continue to be administered on the Jaguar grading structure with the associated
terms and conditions. If you are a Land Rover employee you will continue to be administered on the
Land Rover grading structure with the associated terms and conditions.




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.


In your new role as a Group Leader, you’ll be part of Powertrain Engineering, which is responsible for the design and development of all power units and drivetrains for our products. You’ll be responsible for our Electric Vehicle and Hybrid systems, applying a robust system engineering process within the High Voltage Battery Group.


You’ll be developing a comprehensive generic requirements deck for high voltage batteries at a system level, driving agreement of key level requirements with external 3rd parties and suppliers. You’ll also be leading issue resolution, problem solving, and internal agreement on best practice, as well as the decomposition of battery level requirements to the battery subsystem and component level.





You’ll be degree educated in a relevant engineering discipline, bringing experience of system engineering within the automotive industry or a similar environment such as aerospace, rail, or nuclear. You’ll have designed lithium ion batteries, particularly those used in vehicles, and you’ll have deployed problem solving within previous roles using the 8D processes or Six Sigma tools.


You’ll need to be an exceptional communicator and self-motivation and a high degree of initiative will be part of your skill repertoire.

Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you will find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team. As well as the impressive benefits that all our employees receive (including a privilege car purchase scheme, competitive pension scheme and 26 days holiday entitlement), there are some additional benefits open to our Managers. This includes access to our highly competitive Employee Car Ownership (ECO) scheme which provides a Jaguar, Land Rover or Ford brand car at extremely favourable cost compared to traditional company car lease schemes. In addition to the car scheme we provide private health cover (which includes travel insurance) and performance-related bonus schemes. 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.
