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

Our commitment to sourcing only the highest quality products for our vehicles has taken us all over the world. Join us, and it will be you coordinating a supplier base of thousands, ensuring the right part arrives. Every minute of every day, thousands of parts and materials from all over the world are shipped and delivered to our plants, ready to be utilised on our production lines within hours. At the same time, hundreds of customers from across the globe are handed the keys to their newly transported vehicles. A feat like this doesn’t just happen.

Behind this momentous undertaking are our Material Planning & Logistics (MP&L) team, coordinating on a massive scale to ensure our vehicles continue to roll smoothly off the production lines and into the hands of the customers awaiting them.

As the Engineering Change Control (ECC) Supervisor, you’ll be a key figure within the Data Integrity department, managing a team of analysts, developing and delivering ECC processes and promoting continuous improvements, along with representing ECC at all levels.

You’ll work with the Engineering teams who are responsible for creating the Engineering changes, taking overall responsibility to communicate change with the introduction of part number changes on current vehicle and new model year in the Solihull plant; and in addition to this, you’ll manage part number changes and associated timings and will support new model introduction and running change. 

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

You’re preferably degree educated with experience ideally gained in the automotive or manufacturing industry, as well as computer literate and proficient in all relevant business systems (including CMMS3 and WERS).

You’ll bring your experience of change control processes, ideally gained in a logistics or supply chain management background; and have been exposed to operational management, process development and forecasting and planning and you’ll be employing your initiative, analytical skills and leadership abilities to keep our ECC operation operating at a world-class level.

You’ll have a proven track record of successfully setting and achieving targets, leading teams and effectively managing stakeholder’s expectations. You’re a strong relationship-builder and communicator, with the ability to inspire and influence at all levels, with a customer focused approach. Being highly self-motivated and assertive, you’ll demonstrate confident negotiation skills with the ability to perform well under pressure whilst managing changing priorities.

Finally, you need to be flexible with travel and have a full 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.

BENEFITS

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.
