Application Tips

    • Make sure your CV highlights your skills, achievements and contact details. Begin with a personal statement, provide examples to support your experiences and claims, ensure all information is relevant. Keep it to a maximum of three pages.

    • We use aptitude tests to evaluate your potential to gain skills and knowledge, and psychometric tests to evaluate your mathematical abilities. If you have a disability, you should contact us as we may be able to make adjustments for you. There are a number of practice tests available online. They are not the same as ours, but they will help you get used to our approach:


    • Our assessment centre measures knowledge, skills and behaviours, and you’ll take part in a range of exercises. These include behavioural and technical interviews, role playing, group exercises, presentations and ability tests.

    • Jaguar Land Rover’s competitive edge and successfully delivering experiences our customers love, rely on everyone who works for us. Our Customer First Principles were created from over 250,000 pieces of customer insights, which define what our Jaguar Land Rover customers expect from us.

      We’ve adopted these principles as the behaviours we should all follow at work.  We are all each other’s customers, internally and externally, and they inspire how we behave to help us build consistent workplace interactions.

      Customer First behaviours feature throughout our business, including in our recruitment and selection process.  It is essential that you are fully familiar with them and can demonstrate how you have a Customer First mind-set.

      If we are all dependable, transparent, work in a personalised way, are easy to do business with and make each other feel special, we can create experiences customers and colleagues love for life.

      Find out more about our Customer First behaviours below. We’ve included some prompts to help you prepare for your assessment.   Reflect on how effective your customer interactions are and think about specific examples you can give.
