Design Engineer Ezra

As strange as this sounds, I didn’t know much about the world of engineering until a group of Jaguar Land Rover apprentices came into my school to talk about what they do. I was amazed that engineering was really suited to my skillset. And I realised that creative thinking and problem solving are exactly what is needed to do well as an apprentice here. I’ve been here three years now, working as a Design Engineer, and it has been harder than I thought, but the support is incredible. And the network of other apprentices is huge. There’s always someone who will listen to you and so many people you can learn from.

My next step is to move into Global Product Strategy. And I can’t wait. I’ll be working on the strategy for cars of the future. Thinking of the cars that will appear ten years from now. What I love is that the cars of tomorrow will be designed totally differently than the way we design cars today. With self-driving cars becoming a reality, we’ll be looking at how people will make the most of their time in the car. My job is to continue to design cars that create experiences that they love.

I sometimes can’t believe what I do every day. It’s challenging and exciting. And I couldn’t believe it when I found out that my great granddad used to work here too! He worked on the original Defender. I’ve been working on the latest version. And I couldn’t be prouder!
