Creating the cars of tomorrow is a challenge around 40,000 passionate Jaguar Land Rover colleagues take on every day. The way cars are created and driven is changing. And we are leading that change. Our vision is for a cleaner, smarter, more connected world where autonomous, connected, electrified and shared vehicles will replace the environmentally impactful world of the internal combustion engine. Throughout our history we have always taken on the challenges of creating the most prestigious, sustainable and desirable cars.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Before any idea can become reality, our Studio Modelling team comprising of the Visualisation and Animation team and the Digital and Clay Modelling teams work with the Model Operations team to transform 2D visions and concepts into photo realistic stills or animations and feasible 3D properties.
As part of the Digital Modelling or Visualisation and Animation teams you’ll use your design awareness to create digital properties from design sketches or data and help create the solutions to specific or unique design problems. Whilst those who join our Clay Modelling team will need good aesthetic judgement to develop 3D shapes for both our interior and exterior design clay properties.
As part of the Model Operations team you’ll take the Studio Modelling early design or production ready, data and using your design and engineering awareness, along with the Computer Aided Design /Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD/CAM), 5 Axis, Rapid Prototype and Paint & Trim teams, develop and build full size world-class physical properties to support the design process.
With ongoing support and opportunities to gain further skills, everything you do will help us imagine the next generation of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles and keep us at the forefront of automotive design.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Excellence runs throughout our entire business and we would expect you to be the same. So, as well as being on track to achieve a degree in Design at 2:2 level or higher, you’ll need a clear understanding of practical automotive design, engineering and model development.
To join our Digital Modelling team you’ll also need awareness of software tools and programmes and excellent 3D spatial evaluation skills, and to join the Clay Modelling or Model Operations team we will need to see some evidence of your physical modelling skills.
Please be aware that our undergraduate placement opportunities are only open to penultimate year students working towards a degree in Design (i.e. students who will be returning to their final year of study following their placement with us); or returning to university to study a Masters in Design.
All applicants must upload a Design portfolio to their application to be considered. This must be no larger than 5MB.
This placement will commence on 13 April 2020 and finish on 11 September 2020 and you’ll need to be able to commit to the full duration of the five month placement.
REWARDS AND BENEFITS
Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach in your work. And, with on-going support from industry leading experts and continual learning opportunities, you’ll quickly realise that our programmes have been designed to be as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce.
Whichever part of the business you join your hard work and contribution deserves recognition. You’ll receive a competitive salary of around £326 per week, or £17,000 per annum. For those on placements of longer than 3 months there is a generous holiday allowance. There are a range of other benefits and regular social events so plenty of chances to make friends and have fun too.
Every vehicle. Every innovation. Every bit of momentum in over 170 markets worldwide. None of it would be possible without the expertise, drive and continued ambition of our people.
