We are the future of modern luxury

We are the pioneers in creating the next generation of outstanding vehicles, founded on modern luxury. Each and every one of us is shaping the exceptional with soul. We are reimagining the driving of tomorrow and redefining what’s possible.

We are the future of movement.

We can’t wait to see what you can do with us.

Level 6 Supply Chain & Logistics Degree Apprenticeship   

Supply Chain & Logistics sits within our new Industrial Operations function. Our Industrial Operations function incorporates all teams across manufacturing, purchasing and supply chain and consolidates accountability for the complete ecosystem of how we produce our vehicles, in one place.

Our Reimagine programme is transforming every part of our business. It’s rethinking how we design and deliver the next generation of luxury, sustainable cars and everything that goes into them. In reinventing our end-to-end supply chain capability and performance, our pioneering people are using advanced digital tools to bring together a global network of 1,000 suppliers in the most connected way possible to achieve one thing: delivering awe-inspiring vehicles on time, flexibly and competitively.

As an apprentice, you will enjoy both hands-on, career-building experience at the forefront of automotive and the opportunity to achieve a BSc (Hons) degree that our experts have developed in conjunction with Aston University, which specialises in supply chain and logistics research and teaching. From day one, you will make an impact on our supply chain, continuously design and execute innovative strategies and solutions, optimise the journeys taken by parts from the factory showroom, and shape the future of movement along the way.

The right thing, in the right place, at the right time. It sounds simple but coordinating the arrival of millions of parts from all over the world and getting our products to over 140 markets is a skill. The supply chain apprenticeship programme exists to develop a new generation of talent, with the ability to embrace the complex challenges of creating the sustainable, resilient and efficient global supply chains of the future.

As an apprentice in this area, you will work within the following teams:

Supply Chain Operations & Logistics

From experience in supplier development to finished vehicle delivery, you will build your ability to get the best performance from our suppliers and logistics providers and deliver efficiently optimised well-planned operations. You will be planning Jaguar Land Rover’s multi-model inbound and finished vehicle supply chains and will use key performance indicators to manage the flow of components from global suppliers to our assembly plants, and vehicles to dealers.

New Product & Launch

Working on the new vehicle and engine programmes that are the future of the business, you will build expertise in managing complex projects, defining objectives, timing and budgets, and taking concepts from the desktop to industrialisation. You will work years in advance of new vehicle introductions, ensuring that robust plans and efficient supply chain solutions are developed and implemented.  After realising your project, you will focus on operational readiness as well as controlling capital budgets and expenses to maximise financial returns.

Supply Chain Planning

Playing a critical role in maximising new vehicle sales revenue, you will help the team with everything from capacity planning to vehicle scheduling, owning and orchestrating our Sales and Operations Execution (S&OE) and Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) processes. You will work with both our Commercial and Manufacturing teams to translate global vehicle demand into vehicle and propulsion system production schedules, balancing manufacturing plant output with demand and optimising component and finished vehicle inventory.

Supply Chain Strategy

The Supply Chain Strategy team is responsible for defining the long-term strategic direction of the supply chain by monitoring industry, economic and customer trends. Developing plans and enabling targeted change across all areas of the supply chain, you will ensure that everything you do is aligned with our business vision while maintaining a focus on sustainability, risk management and business resilience.

Your Education Provider

As part of your apprenticeship, you will study for a BSc in Supply Chain Management (Professional Practice) with Aston University. 

Over the first three years of your apprenticeship, you will study a range of modules designed to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to thrive as a supply chain professional.  You’ll contribute to the business in your assigned role, as well as undertake additional study in your own time, to achieve your academic award. A network of apprentice tutors and line managers will regularly review your progress and offer advice to support you in performing at your best.

Your studies will be delivered through a combination of block teaching weeks, online study and independent learning. The learning you acquire with Aston University you will apply directly to your role at Jaguar Land Rover. 

In the final year, you will undertake a work-based project that also forms part of your End Point Assessment (EPA). On successful completion of your EPA, you will achieve your Level 6 Apprenticeship, ready for an amazing career with Jaguar Land Rover.
