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.
LOCATION: Gaydon, Warwickshire
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 and you'll be the driving force behind it all.
Engineering Benchmarking and Innovation sits within Value Engineering and Teardown. The purpose of the team is to provide sophisticated benchmarking services that determine how competitors engineer their cars to deliver customer and brand experience.
We also challenge current and future thinking to propose better value engineered products that excite our customers. We do this by competitor vehicle benchmarking, value engineering, idea generation, innovation, and programme application.
As a Value Engineer, you'll work with the rest of the Value Engineering and Teardown team as well as other cross-functional teams to build a comprehensive understanding of competitor vehicles. In this highly specialist and technical role, you'll develop a schedule of interactions and workshops with the Commodity Group Leads and Technical Specialists, amongst others, to identify opportunities for improvement within areas such as engineering, technology, process, etc. Within this you'll take on the role of an investigator, analyst, facilitator and coach. As such, you'll enable the commodity owners to compile high-value engineering system strategies.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
In this all-encompassing role, you'll need a broad level of experience, including excellent engineering or manufacturing knowledge and awareness. Because you'll be working with internal stakeholders, a consultative and coaching approach will be needed, and experience of promoting your role and department within the business will be important. In addition, you'll have an open mind to generating ideas across all areas of the business and the ability to present these ideas to large groups. You should be the type of person who continually challenges and pushes the teams to explore new opportunities whilst remaining friendly and a constructive member of the team. Finally, you'll be experienced in engaging and then working across multiple projects and multi-functional teams.
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 a 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.
