As you are probably well aware, Jaguar Land Rover designs, manufactures, and sells vehicles from two of the world’s leading luxury brands. Based in the UK, it exports more than 80% of its products to global markets.
The business operates in 170 countries across the globe, and has around 25,000 members of staff. This number has increased significantly over the past few years, thanks to a commitment to investing in people to drive the business forward.
Graduate programmes on offer include: Product Development and Design, Manufacturing, Human Resources, Finance, Purchasing, Marketing, Sales & Service, and IT. The two-year schemes focus on technical skill and personal development, and all include a robust learning and development programme. Graduates are assigned a mentor, and where relevant, will be supported through a professional qualification.
Recruits are expected to be innovative and creative, and will regularly have these traits challenged throughout their time on the scheme. As you’d expect with an international business, the recruitment process is tough, and aims to find those with the potential to lead the organisation in the future.
As well as a starting salary of around £29,000, graduates can contribute to a competitive pension scheme and even purchase vehicles at a discounted rate.
Range Rover is known to provide vehicles in the military capacity, especially for the British and the Australian armies.
