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
Already admired in over 128 countries, with an ambitious plan for further sustainable, profitable growth, we’re an organisation with a truly global footprint and outlook.
You’ll be expected, from day one, to use your creative and commercial skills as you gain valuable insights across our departments, working with multi-stakeholders to make change and support sustainable, profitable growth.

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.
