JOB TITLE: Modelling & Simulation Chapter Lead
SALARY: £50,000-£75,000
We’re re-examining our vehicles and what a vehicle means in the emerging world of automation, connectedness, electrification and the shared economy. New ideas, new technology, and new approaches to mobility are our business. Join a team of next generation thinkers.




As JLR products become increasingly complex, software driven and enabled through the use of AI/ML, it becomes increasingly important to apply a state-of-the-art Modelling & Simulation (M&S) approach during development and testing. Assisted and Automated Driving (AAD) is at the forefront of this wave of change and is, therefore, looking for a chapter lead to lead the AAD Modelling & Simulation Chapter enabling the use of best-in-class modelling & simulation methods and tools in development and testing of Assisted and Automated Driving Products.


The chapter mission is to bring leading talents into the Modelling & Simulation squad, provide them the best home with all necessary support, training, and opportunities to become better engineers every day. Chapter members support development squads with their unique skillsets, working according to agile principles and methods, defined by the Chapter Lead and Technical Specialist. The squad will deliver pioneering solutions for the Modelling and Simulation challenges faced during AAD features definition, development, verification & validation.


You will build up the right capabilities and people, equip them with the skills, tools, and standard approaches to deliver functional excellence, and ensure that they are deployed to value-creation opportunities. The chapter supports all AAD activities to design and deploy M&S methods and tools, enabling the wider engineering community to utilise them for AAD Features definition, development, delivery, and verification and validation. You will lead the development and progression of chapter members in your and adjacent teams through a combination of training, coaching, best practices and mentoring.
