Jaguar Land Rover is looking for up to 300 new apprentices, undergraduates and graduates to join the business in September 2021.

The company has unveiled a new engineering degree apprenticeship in partnership with the University of Warwick to develop technical skills and knowledge across engineering. This will enable Jaguar Land Rover to continue to build its engineering capability for an autonomous, connected and electric future.

The new apprenticeship joins an established line-up of early careers programmes already offered by Jaguar Land Rover, including different options for school leavers, college and university students.

Jaguar Land Rover is one of the UK’s largest automotive apprenticeship providers, accounting for about half of all UK automotive manufacturing apprentices. It is also currently ranked the fourth most attractive employer for engineering.

All the early careers’ programmes deliver on-the-job training with invaluable coaching and mentoring from the company’s experienced engineers. The degree apprenticeship combines real-world and academic experience, with the additional benefits of earning a competitive salary while learning – and no university tuition fees.

“These are rapidly evolving times and the automotive industry is transforming to respond. Developing young talent is crucial to the future of our business and having diversity in our people at this stage of their career is pivotal,” said Carrie Barber, talent and people capability director at the company. “We need young people who are passionate about our industry and brands, who desire to shape a different kind of world and who want to work together with innovation.”

This new four-year programme will enable Jaguar Land Rover to train and develop potential engineers, preparing them for a future in product design, development or manufacturing.

The new engineering apprenticeship scheme follows the introduction of the Digital and Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship in 2018, which was designed to build Jaguar Land Rover’s capability and skills needed to develop and deliver future mobility technologies.

Over the past three years, Jaguar Land Rover has recruited almost 2,200 young people to its apprentice, undergraduate and graduate programmes.
