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


In work I am a current manufacturing engineer. We work along side the production staff offering advise and we problem solve any issues that production may have. I current have a project to improve a process which is giving production a lot of issues, though this is confidential so can't add any more information about it.

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


I have developed my communication skills a lot, and how to deal with people in a professional manor. I have also gone on a problem solving course which has helped my to develop my ways on how to solve the problems we are having.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?


I enjoy the professionalism in the work place, and learning new things every day is a good experience.

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


Now that I have been given many responsibilities in the work place, I do feel valued and I do feel that the company would lose out if I missed a day in the factory.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?


My programme I feel is not very organised. Due to us being the guinea pigs for the Trail Blazer programme, everything seems to be done last minute, and trying to get information about future events (Such as, next terms time table) is very hard to obtain.

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


Most lecturers are willing to help with any problem that you may have, although there are few lecturers that refuse to help due to the assignment is suppose to be all research.

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


I receive a lot of support from JLR, any problem that I may have they are willing to help me, and guide me to become better at the job I am doing.

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


The salary that I have been given meets all my outgoing costs and a bit more. I can pay rent on my house, pay for my car, my phone, and any other bills I may have, and have some left over for the weekend.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?


There are always CSR events going on that we are invited to that we can attend. We have also started to help the local community by tidying up a garden for a primary school. This is so the school can once again use the garden for the kids.

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


9b. Why? *

Because it is a decent company to work for. If it wasn't because we were the first people on the Trail Blazer scheme, I reckon the course would have ran smoothly, and I would have given a higher rating.

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

Search what jobs are available, ad see if they are right for you. Try and get information on the subjects that you might be doing and do a little bit of research in them to help you in the year, because it does go quick. The interview stages are relatively easy if you have your head screwed on.
