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.
We’re changing how our customers choose their next Jaguar or Land Rover, and we’re using some incredible cutting edge design technology to achieve this. Change isn’t something we’re scared of, and how we market our world-class vehicles is certainly taking a daring step into the future.
Instead of relying on the tried and tested, we’ve taken the plunge into the next generation of marketing tools, with our Digital Assets team leading the way. By generating incredibly realistic marketing materials, including computer-generated photographs and videos, we can show off our vehicles in their full glory before they’ve even been manufactured. You’ll be joining a team which is influencing not only our future marketing strategies, but those of the entire industry.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Digital Assets team residing within Marketing, Sales and Services is the primary centre of competence at Jaguar Land Rover, responsible for the creation of all CGI digital assets and digital media to support product launch communications activities across multiple business functions for consumer facing content.
The Digital Assets team is defined into three core areas of competence; Development, Model Production and Imagery Production. Each area is responsible for pioneering and executing its distinct function aligned to core JLR and Digital Assets strategy, objectives and programme deliverables.
In your new role as a Model Creation Production Supervisor, your primary focus will be to supervise and support Production Team members, ensuring that key product data model deliverables, including geometric data preparation, soft surface modelling, rules engine configuration, colour and material application, and export of models to required formats are carried out in line with Digital Asset Group technical standards.

· Work with the Data Preparation Team to ensure standards are clear and easy to use
· Accept delivery of build inputs and indicate if data is sufficient enough to complete build
· Support and guide Production Team members
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
You’ll be an expert in computer-generated imagery, with extensive experience of data preparation and the use of modelling software including Autodesk Maya, ideally backed up by coding skills in Python, C++, and UE4. You’ll also be an experienced manager, capable of managing a skilled team of Product Artists, as well as external suppliers.
You’ll need to be:
· A CGI expert, specifically within data management and preparation
· An exceptional manager, who can guide, supervise, and motivate
· Focused on quality and used to working to strict technical standards and processes
