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.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

Suspension. Engine mounts. Wheels and tyres. To provide an exceptional driving experience, every chassis component needs be honed to perfection. That takes all kinds of people, from designers to project managers.

 

The Suspension Systems Architecture (SSA) team is responsible for the design, analysis and release of vehicle chassis structural components, including suspension links, knuckles, bearings, bushes and frames. This includes developing and implementing system and component strategies, developing detailed designs and delivering engineering sign-off against customer requirements.

 

As the Senior CAD Engineer you’ll be responsible for new subframe design and validation, from initial concept through all virtual design phases, drawing release and into production. You’ll support the CAE analysis of subframe components, providing engineering direction to ensure that the final designs are fully optimised and meet all functional requirements. In addition you’ll plan and prioritise design and analysis work for a complex set of products and project timelines, and work with core engineering to develop design standards, rules and guidelines to embed learning and best practice into our process.

 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

 

As an experienced CAD engineer you’ll demonstrate proven problem solving skills and have experience in 3D component design and analysis, including aluminium and steel structural components. You'll be able to demonstrate effective team management and strong project management skills, along with experience of managing the delivery of multiple projects to tight deadlines.

 

With a mechanical design background, you’ll have experience in the mechanical design of safety critical structural components. You’ll also have working experience of CAD modelling software, CAE tools used for FEA stress analysis, and the proven ability to interpret structural test ad analysis data to drive design development.

 

Ideally you’ll be educated to degree level in a relevant engineering subject and have working knowledge of manufacturing processes used in subframe construction, as well as the ability to design for manufacturing responsibility. Finally, you’ll have strong presentation skills, communication skills and the flexibility to adapt quickly to change.

 

BENEFITS

All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

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.
