Jaguar Land Rover is investing in future engineers with a recruitment programme offering around 60 Advanced Apprenticeships to enthusiastic 16+ year olds wanting a career within the automotive industry.

The programme consists of a 42-month scheme, with the initial period at college. During this time they would earn an NVQ2 in Performing Engineering Operations, an NVQ3 in the chosen trade pathway and a Technical Certificate, as well as developing wider key skills.

Des Thurlby, Human Resources Director, Jaguar Land Rover, said: "With the two brands investing in the future and a wide range of engineering opportunities and career paths available, there has never been a more exciting time to be an apprentice at Jaguar Land Rover."

The two brands are jointly investing £700m to develop new technologies to reduce CO2 emissions from their vehicles - investment additional to all other development work. Bob Joyce, Engineering Director, Jaguar Land Rover said: "The need to develop sustainable vehicles is really driving the business and we need bright, forward thinking trades people to progress these very important projects."

At the end of the initial training period, apprentices will start work at Castle Bromwich, Gaydon or Solihull, continuing studies on a day-to-day basis, with the opportunity to complete a foundation degree or City & Guilds Qualification, depending on business needs.

To apply, candidates must have, or expect to gain, four GCSEs or equivalent at Grade C or above (including Maths, English Language and Science). Find out more by logging on to  or

The application process is open until 31st May.
