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.


With your knowledge and experience in Change Management and Project Management you’ll join the Centre of Excellence (COE) team as a Business Change Project Lead at our state-of-the-art Engine Manufacturing Centre (EMC). The Centres of Excellence (CoE) have been established as part of the development of a class leading, high performing and best practice Process Organisation, to support JLR in meeting their ambitious, global expansion plans.


The CoEs will allow the organisation to develop and support a population of functional experts who will bring specific process and application insight. This insight will allow us to achieve the greatest business value from the significant ongoing investment we are making in Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) applications by providing the expertise and rigour to continually refine and improve our end to end business processes used in each of our global operating locations.


The overarching objective for the Business Change Lead will be on getting the organisation engaged and ready for change and ensuring the change is adopted and sustained. You'll input to and follow the change model for Jaguar Land Rover and the manufacturing organisation. You'll use the tools and resources to enable the successful deployment of manufacturing business processes; this includes business change management, training, testing and deployment activities. In addition, this role will work on workforce capability and capacity planning and managing cultural and behavioural aspects of people change. Provide expert analysis and advice on the delivery of change management approaches in programmes and projects to ensure a first class service to our customer base.




You’ll have proven project management skills with the ability to use planning and timing tools to deliver on-going projects of all scales across cross functional teams, along with experience and knowledge of change management principles, methodologies and tools and how to apply these in practice.  You’ll be able to demonstrate a strong management background with a history of leading a team to meet business objectives and to ensure efficient running of projects and be able to use your stakeholder management to influence.


You'll have an understanding of the end-to-end manufacturing process and be an effective leader with the ability of coordinating & supporting groups of people through complex processes in a cross functional, fast paced and demanding environment.


You’ll be proficient with use of PC Systems & Packages, with an ability to analyse and interpret data output. You’ll be a strong communicator, both written & verbally and have the confidence to present your information in front of groups of people, including Senior Management.


You’ll be an individual, who has the ability to work independently and in a team, you’ll be results driven, demonstrating tenacity, drive and perseverance with the ability to deliver operational plans in a complex, highly demanding environment. Have the capability to combine a short term, pragmatic focus with medium term planning, whilst being resilient and enthusiastic to new ideas and the enthusiasm to deliver a world class product.



Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you will find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a privilege car purchase scheme, membership of a competitive pension plan and paid holiday entitlement. This and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.
