Jaguar Land Rover is harnessing technology to make driving smarter, safer and cleaner. You can help create a world in which responsible, sustainable vehicles revolutionise the driving experience for generations. Our vision is to leverage the incredible potential of technology to build vehicles that not only offer a premium, all-encompassing digital experience, but that also make our customers lives better.

You will be responsible for leading and developing the SSA component design and delivery within SVO Chassis, including investigation of new technology and suppliers. You’ll own component 2D and 3D geometry maturation in line with the development, preferably directly managing CAD packages. You will be accountable for delivering the commodity plan to quality, cost and time, including maintaining the Worldwide Engineering Release System, and you will own and deliver the Engineering Advanced Product Quality Planning deliverables. You will manage Change Request, expenditure forecasting and the relevant supplier teams in support of delivery of the programme milestones. You will be responsible for managing DV and PV test plans, including detailed planning of test and development stages through to sign off and support engineering test teams with rectification of issues. You will also resolve issues with component engineering and vehicle attribute teams to develop designs that meet targets, ensure all appropriate Jaguar Landrover standards are met through-out design maturation, provide input into new feature development, and identify and deliver efficiency improvements, including weight, cost and complexity reduction.




You will have proven technical knowledge and automotive engineering experience of the design and development of suspension system hardware, particularly knuckle, links and subframes, previous experience of managing resolution of business, technical and process issues within a Project Team environment, and a good working knowledge of product creation and delivery, change control, product definition and change management processes.

Ideally you will also have:

  • Capability in using Virtual Engineering tools such as Teamcenter, Enovia, CATIA V5 & CATIA V6
  • An understanding of how the suspension architecture influences the vehicles dynamic behaviour, delivers the vehicle level targets and how this is distilled to a system/component level
  • Knowledge of component manufacturing techniques




Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme.
