ENGINEERING

We’re reimagining the car of tomorrow. Our future of sustainability-rich modern luxury will be achieved through curiosity, creativity and precision engineering.

The best minds will help us get there. People who question every tiny aspect of the manufacturing process in their pursuit of creating innovations that move people. People who discover cleaner, smarter, faster and unique luxury solutions through innovative research. People who will drive inspiration from concept to roll-out. People who can discover a way of working that suits them and their engineering skills best. People who can power the future of JLR.

Reimagining technology, disrupting an industry and developing the systems and solutions for a better world, will be realised through our strategy, our investment and with the brightest engineering minds who can develop new innovations that move people.

Some of our teams

Product Engineering

Product Engineering builds the precision and pride into every vehicle that inspires loyalty in our customers. Every conceivable aspect of the manufacturing process is overseen, refined and continuously improved and reinvented here.

BODY ENGINEERING creates the head-turning, crowd-pleasing looks that make our marques uniquely recognisable.

CHASSIS ENGINEERING considers, resolves and delivers the various aspects of motion.

ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING delivers smart, connected, clean vehicles through creativity and design innovation and opportunities in a variety of digital disciplines.

POWERTRAIN ENGINEERING delivers power and performance, drives electrification and embraces cleaner, more environmentally friendly, fuel-efficient technologies.

PRODUCT ENGINEERING operations keeps our Engineering function performing at its innovative best by supplying precise tools, processes and validation techniques.

VEHICLE ENGINEERING takes care of all the elements that make our vehicles a cut above the rest and delivers exceptional customer experiences.

Research

The source of inspiration for innovation, some of our most advanced, pioneering features start life here. In technology-led future, research will remain a powerful driver, advancing powertrain development, the use of hybrids, electronics and entertainment, and driverless cars.

Our £150 million National Automotive Innovation Centre (NAIC) is a state-of-the-art technology hub designed to complement our research and development centres at Whitley and Gaydon; keeping the UK and JLR at the forefront of global innovation. The team will develop the vehicles and personal mobility solutions of the future and focus on inspiring the next generation of engineers - from schoolchildren to undergraduates.

Powertrain Operations & Engineering

Craftsmanship. Performance. Technology. These are the hallmarks of our world-class cars. But, more than ever, we’re excelling in that last category. We manufacture the propulsion systems supporting the next generation of vehicles, as well as our current models.

With our focus turning to electrification technologies, we aim to make JLR the leader in a new and exciting age for the automotive industry. We’re also at the forefront of developing self-driving vehicles, which means we can power freedom and fulfilment in people’s lives. You could be the driving force to ensure we deliver.

Programme Management

Manufacturing our vehicles is a complex business. Orchestrating this logistical and technological epic is the job of our Programme Management team.

Managing our programmes involves co-ordinating expertise from our Product Engineering teams with the input of specialists from right across the business – Strategy, Design, Purchasing and Manufacturing. Essentially, they take the best from these hugely talented, cross-functional teams and add their own impressive delivery capabilities to make sure every programme is on time, within budget and meets our own gold standard quality benchmarks.

This is true team work in action. Everyone understands the part they have to play. But this is never done in silos. We are all supportive of each other. Because we are all focused on creating something remarkable. We are all in this together.

WOMEN IN ENGINEERING

Championing gender inclusivity in engineering functions and how it benefits us all, the Women in Engineering and Allies network continues to grow rapidly. Engaging female engineers to flourish and recognising their work, the network has chapters across various sites and is fully aligned with all JLR’s employee-led, diversity championing networks.

Led by a talented and dedicated committee of volunteers, the network has an active schedule of networking lunches with guest speakers, two annual conferences with skills workshops, and carries out key outreach activities in schools, universities and at careers fairs while also supporting campaigns such as JLR’s FurtHERing Futures campaign.

DEVELOPING YOUR SKILLS

We have launched the JLR Learning Academy; a home for lifelong learning. We are creating engaging, relevant and personalised learning content and experiences that can impact personal, team and organisational performance.

It is essential people are curious about things and take their own development seriously in order to be better equipped to move into different roles, projects or careers. The value of our people lies in their continued development and in our commitment to invest in their learning and growth in order that they can optimise their performance, whatever their role.

An essential ingredient in our success is the creation of an environment where managers actively share what they are learning and encourage others to grow and stretch and where they coach and mentor others to maximise their team's performance and continued growth. Through the JLR Learning Academy we are seeking to enable people to learn, create, grow and to support others to do the same; daring each other to embrace the changes and the challenges we face and ensure our future is bright

Charlotte

Charlotte
Steering Wheels & Tyres Engineer

I’ve been here one year already and that year has been full of personal growth. I’ve been encouraged to be open and honest with my manager about my ambitions and I’ve been very pleasantly surprised about the career potential and speed with which I can progress. In the short term, I’m focused on gaining experience, getting an understanding of processes and systems and a good grasp of commodities and technical detail. I can already see how I can progress into a leadership role and how I’ll be supported to do that both by my cohort and the subject matter experts.

Joan

Joan
Postgraduate Engineer

I studied MSc Automotive Engineering at ISAT University (France) and wrote my Master’s Thesis on JLR’s Powertrain Research Department – Engine Simulation Team. On my placement, I was part of a key project that enabled me to apply and improve my engineering knowledge. It’s a great way to learn to work within time, cost and quality considerations, and to improve your behaviours and presentation skills.

This wasn’t my first placement but it did give a good balance between my desires and motivation. The support I got from my manager quickly helped me to integrate, achieve my objectives and secure a permanent role as Lead Engineer for the Simulation Development team. I have recently moved to a new role within the Engine Programme team and I’m looking forward to the different challenges this will bring.
