- Closing Date: 01-01-2024
We’re 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.
This has led to a huge revolution in thought and practice, with supply chain planning, resilience and sustainability now at the forefront of many of the most exciting digital innovations being developed. This complex ecosystem of new technologies and ideas creates fantastic opportunities for talented apprentices to learn fast, champion change and establish a career where you are challenged to think differently every single day.
As part of your apprenticeship, you’ll get the benefit of hands-on career-building experience at the forefront of the automotive industry, and you will achieve a BSC (Hons) degree developed in conjunction with Aston University.
Procurement is a crucial area of our business, responsible for securing and managing complex global deals with international suppliers and strategic partners. Procurement must consider political, technological and innovative changes that impact the environment it operates in on a daily basis within the automotive industry. Working within Procurement will provide you with valuable exposure to what the company buys, how it buys it and who it buys it from, to ensure JLR’s manufacturing facilities and corporate functions deliver product and service excellence in all things it procures.
