Jaguar Land Rover

Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme - Automotive

Working at the forefront of vehicle technology, you will be supporting test developments to existing models, help build entirely new experimental concepts, contribute to the building of bespoke vehicles, assisting the launch of new models and maintaining the marketing fleet. Your role could range from working with Powertrain on development of current engines and the control and reduction of emissions to meet ever changing regulations. 

Opportunities exist in developing and testing chassis, body and electrical components so they meet the high requirements and expectations of our customers. The testing of vehicles so that they perform to, and exceed, customer expectations is another essential area of technical support. You will develop a variety of knowledge, skills and high performance occupational behaviours, so that you can play your part in the product creation of our next generation of vehicles.

Join the Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme, and you’ll have opportunities to make your mark in routes such as:
