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.

LOCATION: Fen End, West Midlands

WHAT TO EXPECT

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 Vehicle Operations (SVO).

Joining the Vehicle Personalisation, Research and International Technical team, you’ll be responsible for delivering new technologies to an exciting and compelling accessory product range. Your team will be focused exclusively on creating products to allow our customers to tailor their cars to their specific wants and needs.

As a Project Engineer, you'll have a unique opportunity to lead projects through a Technology Creation and Delivery System (TCDS) and prove the concepts are ready to be added to future vehicle programmes. You’ll have ultimate responsibility for ensuring the new technology products are right for our Customers, our Brand, and our Business.

You’ll own a number of projects to develop new vehicle personalisation technologies and individual accessory products for a range of vehicles. To help us keep our competitive edge, you’ll benchmark alternative technologies to ensure effective concept definition and selection and coordinate prototype production and testing to demonstrate the suitability of the new product in the context of a working vehicle environment.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

An experienced Project Engineer, you’ll have a passion for the automotive industry, and new and emerging technology. You’ll ideally be educated to degree level and have a strong knowledge of the product lifecycle, product design and delivery processes. With a demonstrable ability to support the resolution of technical issues, you’ll be a strong team player with an open and positive approach to new ideas.

A confident communicator with exceptional organisational skills, you’ll have a methodical approach to managing your own work load and be able to deliver with limited supervision.

BENEFITS

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.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
