We are the future of movement.

We can’t wait to see what you can do with us.

Business Strategy & Sustainability

Jaguar Land Rover is reimagining the future of modern automotive luxury through innovative design for its two iconic British brands. Critical to the Reimagine strategy is building the organisational competence and environment to ensure the company thrives in a fast-evolving market. Driven by a changing consumer, regulatory, technological and competitive landscape, we have created a compelling vision for who we want to be. The strategy and sustainability function is the nucleus of our business and plays a critical role in building a responsible and profitable future. Join us and you’ll be working in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and operating at the forefront of our thinking; whether it’s achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2039, setting the corporate direction or identifying opportunities for business development.

Every idea you have, and every decision you make, will affect our future business strategy and operations. There will be opportunities to develop your professional skill set in areas such as project and change management, financial acumen, consultancy, partnership development and new business models. With such scope on offer and ongoing support from experts and business leaders, we’ll give you a broad experience through a variety of rotations, which you can help shape.

Along the way, you could find yourself involved with our corporate strategy, strategic partnerships, sustainability, global financial services, new services software and open innovation & Tata ecosystems teams. This diversity means that from rotation to rotation you could move from exploring new over-the-air services for our customers to driving our path to net zero or developing new business partnerships.

At the end of the programme, you could move into one of several potential roles across the function, depending on your knowledge and experience, preferences and business priorities. For example, you could become an environmental, social and governance (ESG), partnerships or corporate strategy analyst or take on a broad spectrum of other challenges.

What’s required?

You will need to hold or be on track to achieve at least a 2.2 degree in any degree discipline.

You will have a real passion for problem solving and the curiosity to understand business challenges and deliver innovative solutions. You will also have strong numerical and interpersonal skills and the confidence to champion new initiatives.

You’ll also receive a £2,000 joining bonus to welcome you to Jaguar Land Rover, plus a generous holiday allowance, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, an excellent pension scheme and access to a wide range of deals and discounts from retailers and sports clubs.

You will use your innovation and creativity to the full every day as you develop all the skills for a fast-moving career.
