“The best thing about being part of the Graduate Programme is having the opportunity to further develop my career through the various training courses and modules, whilst playing an important role in developing future Jaguar Land Rover vehicles. I got the chance to be part of a big project that ensured a major cost reduction whilst maintaining supply during the months of negotiations. I really felt like I’d made a positive impact on the business.
We’re provided with a list of core training to be completed over the two-year programme, focusing on hands-on learning – such as planning supplier strategies and managing relationships, negotiating costs, and analysing market trends. In addition, there are opportunities to complete professional qualifications such as CIPS, which I am undertaking. I’m now working towards a Professional Diploma in Purchasing and Supply.”
