Life at JLR
Reece Brewster, Digital Experience Analyst (Undergraduate)
Inspiring, encouraging and rewarding. Studying and working as an apprentice at JLR is more than a learning experience, it’s made me excited to see the impact my work has, curious to learn about the company and develop my skills to become confident and feel important in the work place.
Louisa Briggs, Finance Analytics Grad
I’m on the Analytics Graduate scheme, based within Cross functional. This means unlike a lot of other grads I have a home team where I spend the majority of my 2 years, and then I do 2 3month rotations into other areas of Analytics.
Avarni Kaur Vagree, Commercial Graduate
The enrolment process onto this programme was very smooth, I felt that the application/ interview process was very enjoyable and I was able to show my skills and experience was right for this role. When starting the programme, the support and training I received from the early careers team and my department I work in was amazing, they all made sure and continue to make sure that my skills, experience and knowledge is growing. They do this by setting up social events, buddy systems, feedback forms, mentoring sessions, understanding my goals & how to achieve these. The programme allows me to not just understand one job role but commercial as a whole, we get the opportunity to shadow other departments, attend different talks, visit different sites, retailers, suppliers & warehouses and have the chance to meet & chat with different commercial first line employees.

We aim to achieve Net Zero Carbon Emissions across our Supply Chain, Products and Operations by 2039
Central to our Reimagine strategy is the electrification of both the Land Rover and Jaguar brands with two clear, distinct personalities. All Jaguar and Land Rover nameplates will be available in pure electric form by the end of the decade.
It’s part of our dedication to continuous evolution of our powertrain technologies.
Reimagination of Jaguar as an all-electric luxury brand from 2025
In the next five years, Land Rover will welcome six pure electric variants as it continues to be the world leader of luxury SUVs, with the first all-electric Land Rover model in 2024
But it’s not just our vehicles: we also pay attention to the facilities that create them.
Our Advanced Product Centre, in Gaydon, UK, was extended and redeveloped in 2019, adding over 11 hectares of new landscaping, increasing the natural habitat on the site by 25%, along with special programmes to boost biodiversity. Its own solar energy is generated by a 3,000m2 rooftop array.
All told, we have already reduced our global vehicle manufacturing operating CO2 by 46 per cent per vehicle and we remain committed to an ongoing decarbonisation process.
Sustainable & Responsible Luxury
We’re working hard to ensure luxury and sustainability can go hand-in-hand, through the best of British design and engineering.
Our design teams have challenged conventions of luxury materials and traditional methods of make. Today we offer a conscious range of innovative and responsible leather alternatives that we call Materiality, such as our premium Kvadrat wool blend, our first plant-based textile made with Eucalyptus fibres and ECONYL, made with recycled plastic. Our responsible alternatives reflect our values and the modernity or our vehicles. Find out more about our luxury material options here.
Reuse & Recycle
We adopt circular economy principles; doing more with less by closing the loop on precious materials and actively recycling and reusing our waste and materials wherever we can. We are developing second lives for the batteries from our electric vehicles, actively removing single use plastic items from our operations, and recovering and reforming aluminium from used vehicles to be utilised in new models.
We are a pioneer in aluminium construction that reduces weight in our vehicles, supporting powertrain innovation.
The latest phase of our closed-loop strategy is being spearheaded by ‘REALITY’, a £2 million research project in partnership with Brunel University. It has allowed us, for the first time, to recover premium automotive-grade aluminium from scrapped vehicles, further extended our closed-loop capability.
This is vital in reducing the need for virgin aluminium in vehicle production. Not only does this reduce the need for raw materials, the creation of recycled aluminium also uses around 90 per cent less energy than from new.
