LOCATION: Gaydon, Warwickshire


Every product. Every process. Every environment. Our vehicles continually set the benchmark for luxury, innovation and performance thanks to our unrivalled commitment to infinite detail. Join us within our Purchasing teams, and you'll be the driving force behind it all.

The Programmes Purchasing team manages the interface between Product Development and the purchasing community to ensure supplier sourcing, cost, quality and timing are all delivered against plan. Here, you'll take on a key role in delivering the new vehicle whole lifecycle plan. In return, you'll enjoy a unique and challenging experience with business-wide exposure and development.

As the Programme Buyer, you'll ensure the appropriate stakeholders have committed to the delivery of sourcing all requirements for new vehicle lines. Fundamental to this will be making sure all these requirements are fully understood. You'll work closely with Production Purchase teams to prioritise and focus sourcing activity, and you'll provide process inputs as required.

It will also be your responsibility to ensure all carryover parts are submitted through the Global Sourcing Process, and that Capacity Verification Letters and Commercial Programme Agreements are issued correctly. Crucially, you'll manage relationships with internal and external stakeholders to provide the best overall outcomes from the supply chain, whether they are technical, commercial or logistical.


You'll be experienced in managing simple projects across a wide range of stakeholders. You'll be confident and assertive, with the ability to build strong working relationships and influence a wide range of stakeholders, at all levels of business. What's more, you'll bring the business acumen, personal initiative and passion to succeed. You'll be adaptable to changing circumstances, finding problem solving a rewarding experience. Additionally, you'll be a strong team player with the ability to engage with various functions.


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.
