Everyone around you wants the best for you and are willing to help you out.


“Even though Jaguar Land Rover is a large company I’ve been given lots of responsibilities straight away and really feel I’m part of the team. Everyone around you wants the best for you and are willing to help you out and include you in all the new and exciting projects. My manager and the Early Careers team have tailored projects and my placement based of what I would like from my experience here.


Currently I’m work on a project in EDS on harnesses, alongside three of my own projects that I’ll complete throughout my yearlong placement. I will present these projects at the end of my placement with my learnings.


There are fewer women in engineering, especially in Powertrain, than men but this is changing with the new intakes in early careers. It’s an exciting time to be a part of the business.”

I’d say the most exciting part of the role so far is the environment I’m working in.

‘Everything has been incredibly positive- at work and socially. In the office the team has welcomed me with open arms, the Early Careers team has done a fantastic job of setting up events so that we can all meet each other outside of work.

My role in Surfacing has been a steep learning curve. The programme we learn is so complex that we’ve had one-on-one training for 3 months. I’ve just graduated from that though and, having got to grips with the programme now, I can say it’s really rewarding and feels like a key role to finalise the design process.

I came from SolidWorks which is a parametric modeller and ICEM Surf I work with now is a freeform tool so it’s like a completely different language. Using nodes to control surfaces allows us to be incredibly accurate, which is the main priority for an A-Class Surfacer.

I’d say the most exciting part of the role so far is the environment I’m working in. The studios are state-of-the-art and the number of things I’ve seen that I can’t talk about really makes the role feel special! Moving forwards, I’m hoping to work on production vehicles so that in a few years, when the vehicles are out, I’ll be able to point and say, ‘I surfaced that.’

The real faces of JLR – Michael Schneider

Hi everyone,

I’m the Jaguar Land Rover Campus Ambassador for Durham University. Currently, I am studying for the final year of my Aeronautical Engineering degree.

Over the summer I worked at JLR as part of the undergraduate scheme, where I was placed in the frontal crash team within body engineering – computer aided engineering. This area involves the simulation and analysis of crash load cases, in order to ensure our vehicles are meeting and exceeding crash legislation. The placement provided me with numerous personal development opportunities through mentorship, training and insight workshops.

As part of the placement, I completed projects owned by myself and as part of the team. These projects allowed me to develop appropriate technical skills, whilst mentorship and workshops allowed me to explore opportunities within the company and provided me with a greater understanding of the automotive and technology industry. The interpersonal and communication skills developed over the summer have strongly improved my confidence and have already been applicable to my last year of university in all aspects.

The graduate scheme would offer me the perfect opportunity to take the next steps in my engineering career and I would be very excited to return to the company next year!

Michael

The real faces of JLR – Georgia Dowell

Jaguar Land Rover helped me develop a range of skills including my professional presentation ability, individual project management skills and negotiation skills.

Through out the year I was challenged with a range of projects which developed my experience and knowledge in the automotive industry. Not only this, but my confidence rocketed during my year at JLR as I was pushed out of my comfort zone and had to solve a number of problems.

I would return to JLR due to its opportunities for graduates on the graduate scheme including the chance to try out different departments. It’s also an innovative and forward thinking company, that would be exciting to be a part of in the coming years.

The real faces of JLR – Haamid Adam

Hello!

My name is Haamid and I study Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham.

During my time at Jaguar Land Rover, I was working within manufacturing, specifically within the Launch Quality department at the Solihull plant.

The biggest take-away from the placement for me was certainly the refinement of my soft skills, like leadership and project management. Having returned to university for my third year, I’m able to bring over these skills directly to my Design Project in a leadership capacity, which essentially involves creating a processing plant of some sort with a team of 5 engineers, from the ground up- daunting, I know!

I was also very fortunate to be able to witness the launch phase for some spectacular vehicles and understand the underpinning processes that drive production and manufacturing at JLR.

Overall, my commercial awareness of the automotive sector was really strengthened, and It’s this understanding that allowed me to gain a deeper insight Into the direction of where the automotive and mobility areas may be headed in the near future.
