LOCATION: Gaydon, Warwickshire
ADVERTISED SALARY: £32,416 - £40,000
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.
Due to the increasing demands on the tear down function as a result of our future cycle plan we are looking for an engineer to supplement our existing staff. We are looking for highly motivated inquisitive individuals with a flair for asking 'how' and 'why' during the dis-assembly of competitor products. We are keen to develop each individual to build a Product Benchmarking service to complement the future needs of Jaguar Land Rover.
As the Teardown Engineer, you’ll support the product creation processes through the systematic dismantling, interrogation and review of Jaguar Land Rover and competitor products to capture learning and best practices which can be shared with current and future programme teams. This will be done through systematic teardown, analysis and data recording of competitor products. You’ll also be the direct support to Cost, Weight and Manufacturing target setting and efficiency improvement along with the organisation and facilitation of whole-vehicle reviews to maximise competitor awareness.
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
You’ll have a good understanding of all vehicle systems and manufacturing / assembly methods and naturally be hands on, having practical capability in the dismantling of vehicle components and systems. Your communication skills will be key as you need to be confident in questioning and interrogating the design / product to derive product and process opportunities and be able to present at all levels. You must be flexible due to the changing nature of activity within teardown at any given time. You’ll need to be fully computer literate including MS Office and have a valid U.K. driving licence.
Jaguar Land Rover considers that this role does not meet the criteria to be considered within the Home Office Shortage Occupation list. Therefore, Jaguar Land Rover will not support an application for visa sponsorship and all applicants for this role must have an unrestricted right to work for an indefinite period in the UK.
Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you will find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team. Our employees have access to a privilege car purchase scheme, membership of a competitive pension plan, performance related bonus scheme and 26 days holiday entitlement. 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.
