We’re reimagining design. It’s what we’ve always done because great design is our signature: it moves people, underpins our innovative approach and drives incredible experiences. So our iconic brand continues to evolve, setting the tone and pace, while building in sustainability at every turn. We’re designing the future of movement.

With even bigger designs on the future, we give our Design Undergraduates everything they need (and more) to step up a gear and keep moving forward. Here, you’ll be in great company, growing your network, building the relationships and gaining the skills and experience that give you the solid foundation essential to powering progress in an exciting and creative world of opportunity. It’s rewarding in more ways than one.

Our application process for all design opportunities differs from other areas of our business. We will update our website over the next few weeks with further information. If in the meantime you have any questions about Design opportunities, please email us at graduate@jaguarlandrover.com.



At the heart of our creative design function, our studio modelling team focuses on clay modelling (physical) and creative aesthetic surfacing (CAS) (digital). The two disciplines intertwine to deliver feasible model representations of our initial 2D design vision. Closely partnering with creative designers, the teams create physical scale and full-size models accompanied by digital twins.

As an Undergraduate on this pathway, you will be based within Creative Aesthetic Surfacing (CAS) (Digital). You will help us create a new generation of sustainable, modern and highly desirable products and experiences for discerning customers with rapidly evolving expectations. Together with intensive training in Alias software, you will enjoy extensive instruction from experienced engineers, giving you everything you need to become an expert CAS modeller and shape our future product range.
