1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:


The role is an electrical engineer. You work in an academic and a professional environment. In college we are working towards the foundation degree as well as the necessary PEOs.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?


I have learnt many new skills in many different areas. This comes from doing a combination of the foundation degree and the PEOs. Although the PEOs are less in depth they still offer valuable skills needed in the job.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoy the people who i work with, it is a nice environment. The company culture is strict with rules which to an extent is a good thing as it keeps the company professional.

4. How valued do you feel by Jaguar Land Rover?


When in the work place you feel valued as they will give you real work to do that contributes to the company. Although when at college it can feel like you are forgotten by the company.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


Due to the new trailblazer course the course was a little bit unstable at the start, but as time went on the whole course got very organised. The support needed was given.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?


In college we receive enough support to make it through the course. All the relevant information is given to you need it. Outside of college work it can be hard to know who to go to with problems.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?


JLR will help with any queries with the course or problems that you face. My workplace manager is very helpful and will give me guidance if i ask for it. My mentor also supports me and will try to sort out problems quickly if i have any.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?


Our salary meets all of my costs. It is enough to cover my rent, car expenses and food and drink. There is also enough left over to have some social time and going out with friends.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There are many CSR events available to go to if we would like to. There are many perks that JLR offer meaning that you can get deals with other companies to follow interests.

9. Would you recommend Jaguar Land Rover to a friend?


9b. Why?

I would recommend JLR to a friend as it can produce many opportunities within the company. Also it is a prestigious company and you feel a sense of pride working for them.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Jaguar Land Rover?

I would say to them to take each step of the application process seriously. Also to keep all paperwork in order and organised so not to miss a small detail that could potentially ruin the application.
