Job Description

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.

Pulses racing. Spines tingling. Throughout our history, our iconic vehicles have delivered some of the most emotive driving experiences on the road. Today, with increasing demand and ever-growing ambition, we’re seeking the next generation of innovators who will capture the hearts and minds of customers in every corner of the world. Our expanding graduate programme reflects our commitment to finding and developing the future leaders of our business.


Bringing your engineering knowledge to our commercial business areas, you’ll enjoy real responsibility and genuine global exposure from the start. Whether you’re building relationships with suppliers, delivering exceptional after-sales service or increasing growth in new markets, it’ll be the insights, knowledge and perspectives you gain that drive our excellence. 

We have opportunities for graduates to join two key areas within Commercial Engineering: Cost Engineering and Supplier Technical Assistance.

Cost Engineering is a crucial and ever-growing department within our business. Its primary focus is to deliver cost-focused activities that improve the profitability of the company. Join the team, and we’ll rely on you to seek ever more innovative ways to improve the profitability of our organisation, through process efficiencies and material cost reductions. It could see you evaluating designs and ensuring contracts with suppliers represent value for money; or providing insights that influence the direction of current and future programmes, but which also meet our quality requirements.

Alternatively, if you join our Supplier Technical Assistance team, you’ll help us to select and develop our supply base, through a number of key roles, from new model launch to supplier readiness. It’s a critical role within our purchasing team, which will see you work with key stakeholders both in and outside of the business. All so we continue to deliver the highest quality and manufacturing capability. 


Excellence runs throughout our entire business − and we expect you to be the same. So, as well as having an engineering degree at 2:2 level or higher, you’ll also have drive, creativity, a keen eye for detail and a never-ending commitment to delivering results. If you join the Supplier Technical Assistance team, you’ll need to travel between different sites, so, a full driving license is also essential.

Whatever your role, you’ll discover our dedication to developing excellence runs throughout the business. Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach to your work. And, with on-going support from industry-leading experts, you’ll quickly realise the schemes have been designed to be just as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce.


As you’d expect from one of the world’s most revered organisations, an outstanding range of rewards and benefits await those who have the vision and drive to continue our global success – including a competitive starting salary. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover an excellent place to start your journey and put your excellence in motion.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
