An ever-evolving heritage. A truly exciting future. Two of the world's most iconic brands. Jaguar Land Rover is revered across the globe. Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, we set the standards others want to follow. We want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.

LOCATION: Gaydon, Warwickshire


This team is one of the most experienced of its type in the UK, and has the knowledge and talent to hold its own against the best body engineers anywhere in the world. From iconic body styling to interior detail, from doors and windows to whole cabin systems, everything about our vehicles has to be perfect. It is what customers expect from a luxury brand. It's what this team makes happen. Join them, and you'll help us to stay at the forefront of vehicle innovation and research, and to build on our position as a highly competitive brand in a highly competitive marketplace.

As Lead Engineer you'll focus on the product delivery of Bonnet and Tailgate Access systems (Latches, Support struts, Release cables etc) and integrating components. You'll ensure that the programme meets departmental strategy, cost and weight targets and adherence to requirements.

You'll be responsible for delivering integrated sub systems elements, which may be physical components, a set of related components, or software into vehicle programmes. Your responsibilities include ensuring the content is properly specified, that the supplier delivers against this specification, and that the delivered system is fully verified for inclusion on a vehicle program.


If you have a passion for automotive and have worked on lid mechanisms and closure systems then this is the opportunity for you. Having worked within the automotive - or similar technical - industry you'll already have proven delivery experience in closure systems, both in design and engineering launch. Your experience of planning and reporting of requirements using Cycle Plan programmes will be a key asset to you here.

Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you will find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team. As well as the impressive benefits that all our employees receive (including a privilege car purchase scheme, competitive pension scheme and 26 days holiday entitlement), there are some additional benefits open to our Managers. This includes access to our highly competitive Employee Car Ownership (ECO) scheme which provides a Jaguar, Land Rover or Ford brand car at extremely favourable cost compared to traditional company car lease schemes. In addition to the car scheme we provide private health cover (which includes travel insurance) and performance-related bonus schemes. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
