REQ ID: 47723

JOB TITLE: Automation & Controls Engineering Manager

SALARY: £60,000-£70,000

POSTING END DATE: 15.05.2020

LOCATION: Birmingham

An ever-evolving heritage. A truly exciting future. Two of the world’s most iconic brands. Jaguar Land Rover is revered across the globe. Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, we set the standards others want to follow. We want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The MP&L function interacts with all areas of Jaguar Land Rover including Product Engineering, Purchasing, Manufacturing, Aftermarket, Sales and Marketing and controls and manages the Global end to end supply chain from sales and operations planning, material management and control through the manufacturing plants to the end delivery of the vehicle to the dealer network and ultimately to the customer.

The Automation and Controls Engineering Manager will take responsibility for leading a small but highly skilled team of engineering staff within the Global MP&L function. Your expertise and leadership will help ensure success across a wide range of Engineering projects, from small scale changes on legacy equipment at any one of JLR’s manufacturing sites, through to large scale transformation projects such as the delivery of the Solihull Logistics Operations Centre (LOC), delivering significant cost benefit to the business. The Automation and Controls Engineering Manager will play a significant part in JLR’s move toward greater levels of automation across its Logistics business, including but not limited to Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV’s), Automated Storage (ASRS) and Intelligent Pick Systems. Whilst the role will require input to a wide range of Engineering programs, the focus will be on Controls, Automation, IT infrastructure and initiatives to support the move toward JLR becoming a leader in the digital world (IoT, Industry 4.0, Big Data, Connected Systems).

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

You’ll have experience of working with or specifying industrial controls, including bus/networking systems. You’ll be commercially astute with budget management experience of over £10m within engineering projects. You’ll have experience of leading extensive facility change programmes in relevant fields of automotive, engineering, automated logistics or manufacturing. You’ll have an understanding of IT architecture in respect of industrial automation and controls engineering.

It’s essential you’ll have the ability to deep dive complex issues and provide strategic direction in high pressure environments. It’s imperative you are able to display strong leadership skills, resilience, ability to drive success from ambiguity, and to act as a change agent.

.

SO WHY US?

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, private medical cover and performance related bonus scheme. As a manager, you’ll also be able to select one of our luxury premium vehicles to lease at a fraction of the cost. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

JLR considers that this role does not meet the criteria to be considered within the Home Office Shortage Occupation list. Therefore, JLR will not support an application for visa sponsorship and all applicants for this role must have an unrestricted right to work for an indefinite period in the UK.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
