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
New perspectives and fresh ideas. Diversity within our workforce gives us the competitive edge we need to stay out in front. As an ambitious female undergraduate engineer, you’ll join us every summer during your degree and, if appropriate, for your Industrial Placement too.
Contributing to our global success from the moment you arrive, you’ll be involved in real projects that make a real impact. And as you work with our teams of expert engineers on the production of our incredible cars, you’ll build valuable experience that will not only supplement your academic studies but could act as a springboard to a future career with us.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Excellence runs throughout our entire business and we expect you to be the same. Currently in your first year studying for a relevant degree in any Engineering discipline, you’ll have completed your first year by summer 2020 and be on track for at least a 2:2. Driven, determined to learn and with impressive commercial awareness, you’ll have no doubts that our Engineering Sponsorship Scheme for Women is the next challenge for you.
Remember that we’ll give a £1,500 bursary to you when you return to us for your next placement.
To be considered for this programme you must currently be in the first year of your degree. This undergraduate placement has a fixed start date of 22 June 2019 and will run for a duration of three, six or 15 months.
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.
