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.
Pulses racing. Spines tingling. Throughout our history, our iconic vehicles have delivered some of the most emotive driving experiences on the road. Today, with increasing demand and ever-growing ambition, we’re seeking the next generation of innovators who will capture the hearts and minds of customers in every corner of the world.
Our expanding graduate programme reflects our commitment to finding and developing the future leaders of our business.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Before any idea can become reality, our Studio Modelling team transforms visions and concepts into feasible production vehicles. We have opportunities for graduates to join two key areas of our Studio Modelling team: Visual Animation, Digital and Clay Modelling or Model Operations.
As part of the Visual Animation, Digital and Clay Modelling team, you’ll use your design awareness to develop model properties from design sketches or data, and will help to devise the solutions to specific design problems. Those who work in a Clay Modelling role will need good aesthetic judgement to develop 3D shapes for both interior and exterior design.
Alternatively, if you join our Model Operation team, you’ll use your design awareness to develop physical model properties using early design data, and you’ll help to devise the solutions to specific modelling problems. You’ll use Rapid Prototyping, CADCAM and mould making solutions to enable the production of world class model properties to support the design process.
Whichever team you join, you’ll experience ongoing support and opportunities to develop further skills and qualifications. All so you’re the one who is shaping the next generation of scintillating vehicles.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
Excellence runs throughout our entire business − and we expect you to be the same. So, as well as a design degree at 2:2 level or higher, you’ll also need a clear understanding of practical automotive design, engineering and model development. To join our Digital Modelling team, you’ll need awareness of software tools and programmes and excellent 3D spatial evaluation skills. To join the Clay Modelling team, we’ll need to see evidence of your modelling skills.
Whatever your role, you’ll discover our dedication to developing excellence runs throughout the business. Your innovation and creativity will be challenged every day, as you develop a rigorous and commercially focused approach to your work. And, with ongoing support from industry-leading experts, you’ll quickly realise the schemes have been designed to be just as inspiring as the pioneering vehicles you’ll help produce. All applicants must upload a Design Portfolio to their application to be considered. This file must be no larger than 5MB.
As you’d expect from one of the world’s most revered organisations, an outstanding range of rewards and benefits await those who have the vision and drive to continue our global success – including a competitive starting salary. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover an excellent place to start your journey and put your excellence in motion.
Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
