ORLA MURPHY

Glasgow University

“What made me apply to Jaguar Land Rover’s Graduate Programme was the fact that while working with two iconic brands, I’d also get to further my skills and industry knowledge and gain invaluable experience. I completed both a project management qualification and a Six Sigma course called the Green Belt Problem Solver, which I then applied back to my day-to-day job.

As part of the programme, I got to do a placement in manufacturing. It took me completely out of my comfort zone, which helped me learn a huge amount about working in a timed environment where time equals money and efficiency is everything. It was a great learning curve.

I also did a placement with Land Rover PR and got the chance to work on great projects, such as organising the celebrations for the 150th anniversary of the Red Cross, which Land Rover was sponsoring.”

“One project I really felt proud being a part of was when I helped manage the service part requirements for the Defender, which led up to the process of ending the production of the vehicle. Attending the actual cessation ceremony in Solihull was emotional. It made me feel that I had really contributed to the run-out of one of the most iconic vehicles in British automotive history.

From the beginning, I knew I wanted to become a Project Manager working in the engineering environment. Jaguar Land Rover really gave me the confidence and experience I needed to further my education and pursue my career.

Currently, I’m working towards CEng with IMechE. I also did a module at the University of Warwick, where I obtained my APM Project Management qualification, which is internationally recognised.”

University of Warwick

“The best thing about being part of the Graduate Programme is having the opportunity to further develop my career through the various training courses and modules, whilst playing an important role in developing future Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. I got the chance to be part of a big project that ensured a major cost reduction whilst maintaining supply during the months of negotiations. I really felt like I’d made a positive impact on the business.

We’re provided with a list of core training to be completed over the two-year programme, focusing on hands-on learning – such as planning supplier strategies and managing relationships, negotiating costs, and analysing market trends. In addition, there are opportunities to complete professional qualifications such as CIPS, which I am undertaking. I’m now working towards a Professional Diploma in Purchasing and Supply.”
