Controls and Calibration Engineer

Controls and Calibration Engineer

The induction day really set the tone for what it’s like to work here. The presenter on the day told us that more will happen in the automotive industry in the next five years than the last 50 years! I’m an undergraduate on a years’ placement. Even after a few weeks, I’d seen so much that brings that statement to life. I’ve also seen how our commitment to making sure every new Jaguar Land Rover model line will be electrified from 2020 is being brought to life in everything we do. My current project for example is to create software that helps engineers analyse engine data in a much easier to digest way. Speeding up the process is crucial to beating the competition. I’m also able to build my work here into my final year project at University.

And because I’ve always been passionate about performance cars, I can’t quite believe that I’m surrounded by them every day. And they are everywhere. We’ve got the latest models in the main atrium, we’ve got new models driving round in disguise, we’ve got a test track on site. It really helps to be able to feel how a customer will feel when they are looking at what car to buy next.

In five years’ time, I see myself being a well-established member of the team. And the football team! I love cars, and I love football. I get to play three or four times a week and it’s great to mix with people from different departments.

For me Jaguar Land Rover is the perfect blend of passionate people in a supportive culture, all with a clear aim to change the way the world moves.
