Life at Jaguar Land Rover
"My apprenticeship has been everything I thought it would be, and more! My colleagues go over and above to create a culture that excites learning and delivers exceptional quality. I have been exposed to different areas of the business through workshops and discussions with stakeholders which has enabled me to think differently and with perspective to refine technical and soft skills in areas including programming and critical thinking."
– Yusuf, Digital and Technology Solutions Apprentice
"The Undergraduate Programme allows for the freedom to explore roles within Jaguar Land Rover, from shadowing for just a day to venturing on a placement and delving into a unique project over the course of several months. This breadth of experience has allowed an unparalleled expansion of my skillset and has broadened my knowledge of the internal workings of Jaguar Land Rover, enabling me to realise and develop my strengths, ultimately finding the best career path for me."
– Dylan, Product Engineering, Hardware and Mechatronics Undergraduate
“The product engineering graduate programme gave me an excellent opportunity to work in this great company and garner a deeper appreciation for the products we create. It enabled me to work around the company and network, this has boosted my confidence tremendously. It also allowed me to meet several other graduates from various areas within the company and some of them are now my closest friends and confidants”.
– Shreya, Antenna Hardware Engineer (former Engineering Graduate)
