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 Classic division is part of Special Operations and is actively developing a global proposition to offer cars, services, parts, accessories and experiences to enthusiasts of classic Jaguar Land Rover products worldwide. Classic will service the parts and accessory needs of all external products ten years out of production and support internal product activity.


There is a high level of internal and external retail customer demand across a number of sales channels, all looking for a genuine Classic parts and accessory product offer. To fulfil this demand and maximise sales opportunities across projects, products and sales channels, Classic must develop, source and sell a range of products that are commercially profitable.


As Senior Operations Specialist you’ll be a key part of the team responsible for the processes needed to support the introduction and successful sales of Classic specific parts and accessories - through current and yet to be developed sales channels.


You’ll work closely with the Aftersales team to understand how to utilise their skills, platforms and processes; whilst also identifying new ways to deliver a Classic specific solution, which will operate to potentially different guidelines.

In addition you’ll develop processes for the Classic parts e-commerce channel, to deliver growth through the necessary warehousing, fulfilment and support mechanisms. Working closely with Logistics providers you’ll ensure operational and financial efficiencies are being delivered for both internal and external customers, and continue to deliver improvement initiatives across the entire operation. You’ll also support the team’s ownership of the Classic internal parts department and warehouse.



You’ll have previous experience of Supply Chain/Logistics, preferably within the automotive industry, alongside the ability to balance short-term delivery with longer term strategy. You’ve experience of delivering operational and strategic projects in support of business growth and able to identify and realise new opportunities.


In addition you’re able to manage multiple projects, developing and defining operational processes from scratch, and finding innovative and cost effective solutions to meet the needs of Classic customers.


With strong analytical, influencing and negotiation skills you’re also able to establish and develop close and effective working relationships across departments.
