Duration: 12 months.

Hybrid working is potentially available, depending on the area and manager.

Jaguar Land Rover is a multi-site business and you’ll be required to spend time working with different departments at several locations.

On successful completion of the undergraduate programme, you will be considered for a place on one of our graduate programmes.

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.

People Experience

We call our human resources (HR) function People Experience – because people are what we’re all about. From attraction and recruitment through onboarding all the way to retirement, we’re here to create the journey of a lifetime. Right now, we’re bringing the business’s Reimagine strategy to life as we drive forward an ambitious people transformation agenda. In fact, we’re not just moving into the future, we are moving the future.

The next generation of luxury, sustainable cars will be powered by our next generation of talent. And that’s where you come in: learning from colleagues, thinking bigger, and driving us all forward. A role in our HR team will provide you with the opportunity to make change happen in an industry that’s evolving every day.

Our diagnosis teams partner with business stakeholders to identify what’s required to support our people and transform the organisation. Meanwhile, our design teams are the masterminds behind revolutionising our processes and creating new products to enhance the employee experience. Finally, our experience delivery teams turn concepts into reality, so you’ll find yourself solving real problems for real people as you build your confidence in addressing key challenges. Underpinning all three areas, our Digital People Experience will profoundly change the way we use technology to interact with our colleagues.

Along the way, you will enjoy tailored professional training that enables you to rapidly develop your problem-solving skills and learn to think outside the box as you deliver innovative solutions using agile methodologies and cutting-edge technology. Best of all, you will make Jaguar Land Rover an even better place to work and prosper for everyone and impact significantly on our customers’ journeys.

What’s required?

You will need to be on track to achieve at least a 2.2 degree in any discipline, though we’re particularly interested in courses involving data analytics, behavioural science or psychology.

Please note that our undergraduate placement opportunities are open only to penultimate-year students (those who will be returning to their final year of study after their placement with us). All our undergraduate programmes have a fixed start date, commencing 3 July 2023.

Rewards and benefits

We haven’t yet confirmed our 2023 undergraduate programme salary, but in 2022 this was £19,452. You’ll also enjoy 26 days’ holiday, 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. With ongoing support from industry-leading experts, backed by continual learning opportunities, you’ll quickly realise that our programmes are as inspiring as the vehicles you’ll help to create.

Please be aware that we close our programmes at any point and at short notice based on the volume of applications. To give yourself the best chance of being considered for a place on this programme please apply early.
