WHAT TO EXPECT
When it comes to the future, our Advanced Manufacturing Engineering (AME) team is planning it today. Regularly working up to three years ahead of production, they help translate, plan and implement Product Development outputs into vehicle manufacture, transforming our ambitious plans into tangible and exhilarating realities.
From the luxuriously agile Jaguar F-TYPE to the innovative CX-17, our vehicles – famed for the revolutionary technologies they employ – are amongst some of the most desired and revered in the world today. Your constant challenge, working as part of our diverse and multi-skilled AME team, will be to ensure our iconic brands continue to captivate the world tomorrow.
From concept to launch, Dimensional Control Build Integrity (DCBI) Strategy and Media, through the use of ‘Best in Class’ technologies, tools and techniques, define and implement Jaguar Land Rover’s dimensional strategy across our manufacturing facilities. Ensuring product and process compatibility and delivering world class body accuracy in body construction. DCBI Strategy and Media are responsible for defining the dimensional strategy, manufacturing feasibility through virtual build, ensuring the design is dimensionally robust and driving dimensionally optimized. This is achieved by defining how the car is located, assembled and measured, analysing dimensional variation in manufacturing assemblies and ensuring the correct tools and media are in place to support.
The Global Manufacturing Innovation (GMI) is a new role within DCBI whose purpose is to deliver innovative, cutting edge manufacturing technologies and processes required to address “High Hurts”, new product features, improved manufacturing efficiencies, and ensuring our manufacturing is prepared for the future.
As the GMI Project Engineer, you’ll play a significant role in shaping the future of the GMI team by creating and developing systems to amplify innovation across Manufacturing. Working with the GMI team, you’ll be focused on developing future roadmaps and technologies that are beyond the existing manufacturing technologies known and applied today, with the remit of making step changes in Global Manufacturing.
Manufacturing Innovation projects will be owned and managed by the Process Technology Teams (PTT’s) within Manufacturing e.g. DCBI, Body in White, Vehicle Assembly and Powertrain. You’ll give strong support and guidance to the PTT’s in identifying appropriate subjects, structuring projects and ensuring they pass through robust project gateways from Tooling Kick Off (TKO) to Implementation Readiness (IR). You’ll also support PTT’s to identify and win public funding for manufacturing innovation projects. Liaison with external bodies (Universities, Suppliers, OEM’s etc) is also very important and you’ll be expected to create a network of contacts that can be fully leveraged to provide research projects which deliver solutions to technical issues.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
This is a significant opportunity - you’ll need to be passionate about developing this role; seeking new challenges and demonstrating an enthusiasm about the future of the automotive world. You’ll be eager to research future technologies and keen to understand how we will grow and embrace the changes that new methods will bring.
Creative and innovative, you’ll need to be driven and proactive to succeed here. An excellent communicator, you can easily build relationships across networks and with stakeholders.
Alongside knowledge of manufacturing technologies and processes, you’ll ideally have knowledge of vehicle technology. You’ll have had previous experience of future manufacturing insight and benchmarking and it is essential that you have strong research and analytical skills.
Ideally you’ll have had experience of program or project management, meeting demanding timescales with budget control and cost effective delivery. You’ll be expected to be Computer literacy in Google, PowerPoint, Excel, Visio and Microsoft Project. Other skills and experience that would be advantageous is experience of Technology Creation Delivery System (TCDS) and Product Creation Delivery System (PCDS) and ideally a Degree level qualification in a relevant discipline.
The role will require regular inter-site travel, therefore you’ll need to hold a valid UK Drivers licence and have a flexible approach to working.
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. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.
Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
