Every product. Every process. Every environment. Our vehicles continually set the benchmark for luxury, innovation and performance thanks to our unrivalled commitment to infinite detail. Join us within our Purchasing teams, and you’ll be the driving force behind it all.

Cost Engineering is an exciting department that plays a key role in our business. It is driven by a passion to deliver profitable growth and by partnering the business in all our operational functions. As a Cost Engineer, you'll be part of a dynamic team focused on specific vehicle commodities. The role of Cost Engineering is to provide the business with robust, relevant and timely 'Should Cost' estimates and analysis. This will be relating to any part or assembly, supplied for use in the production of Jaguar or Land Rover vehicles, be they current or future models.  In your role you’ll be delivering ‘should cost’ estimates for a specific sub-set of parts, be providing insight and support to Advanced Engineering in the form of Value Engineering studies, as well as supporting the Purchase team in their negotiations with suppliers. You’ll also be identifying and supporting the implementation of opportunities to reduce costs and use this to influence relevant programmes and commodity directions.


You’ll need an in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of manufacturing processes and have a grasp of at least one or more of the following: machining, casting, forging, presswork, injection moulding, vehicle electronics, vehicle interiors or assembly. In addition, you’ll also have a good all-round knowledge of standard computer programmes such as Excel. Basic financial skills would be an advantage in this role. Moreover, a capability of developing productive relationships with people at all levels of our organisation will be desirable.


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.
