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
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.
As the Purchasing Manager within Special Vehicle Operations (SVO), you'll have overall responsibility for commodity lifecycle activities, from Strategy and Sourcing through to Non Product Investment, Portfolio Management and End of Life Planning for Interiors and Electrical. You'll work closely with key stakeholders such as Programmes, Suppliers, Material Planning & Logistics, and Manufacturing. SVO have segmented their commodity groups and clearly understand their strategic commodities. Within these strategic commodities are two distinct types: those which are unique to SVO and those where the SVO part is the same as a production part or part of an assembly.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
You'll be experienced in delivering complex supply chain solutions and operational plans in a fast paced, highly pressurised manufacturing environment. By implementing and delivering purchasing strategies with the focus on total value chain delivery, you'll identify opportunities for creating value in a commodity or commodities.
Capable of working independently, you'll also be results driven - with tenacity, drive and perseverance. You'll naturally demonstrate your resilient and enthusiastic nature; respond constructively to new ideas and inputs; and draw on your leadership skills by communicating effectively with key stakeholders to influence cross-functional engagement. Finally, you'll also be an effective team player that actively develops and supports team members.
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.
