We are the future of modern luxury

We are the pioneers creating the next-generation of outstanding vehicles, founded on modern luxury. Each and every one of us are shaping the exceptional with soul. We are reimagining the driving of tomorrow and redefining what’s possible.

We are the future of movement.

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


We’ve been transforming our global commercial operations so that we remain at the forefront of innovation in a changing world. We want to create the world’s most distinct luxury vehicles, alongside a personalised customer experience with creativity and technology at its heart.

As the competitive landscape continues to evolve with increasing digital touchpoints, more connected vehicles and various ownership models, we are making continued strides in the transformation of our world-class brands.

At the centre of our Commercial team, you will play a key role in our evolution into an electric-first, modern luxury business. In particular, you will assist with the rapid digitalisation of our marketing communications and the development of connected services and new models of vehicle ownership that will revolutionise our customer relationships.

This is a time of transformation for us, so there’s never been a better moment to join the commercial function at Jaguar Land Rover. You may be certain that we’ll value your creativity, digital expertise, strong judgement, analytical thinking, eye for optimisation, stakeholder management and decision-making skills to make things happen.

As you plan, grow and fine-tune our business, you will work in operations and centre of expertise teams across sales (operations, demand, planning performance and network) and customer service (planning and strategy). Your undergraduate programme will be interesting, challenging and varied – and will give you a real insight into a commercial future with Jaguar Land Rover.
