Reimagine Jaguar

Joining the Reimagine Jaguar undergraduate programme, you’ll help us deliver the future strategy for the Jaguar brand. To make this happen, you could find yourself focusing on the brand direction, sales channels, services (including charging and mobility), experiences, digital and operations as well as strategy, transformation and business development.

Projects could include preparing content for senior reviews (up to board level), making presentations to senior stakeholders (up to director level), and strategic benchmarking of competitor activity. Other projects could include generating innovative ideas to feed into future strategy, working on the development and delivery of future products, services and business operations, and even supporting with prototype creation and testing.

And as well as generating and presenting new ideas for the future of the Jaguar brand, you could be asked to take the lead on engagement activities across the wider team (we’re currently more than 100 people and growing).

During your programme, you’ll provide support to subject matter experts within the team as they make key strategic decisions that will shape the future of Jaguar. You’ll contribute significantly to the success and future of the brand by delivering fresh ideas and viewpoints and challenging current assumptions to meet the needs of future customers – so an innovative mindset is essential.

What’s required?

You will need to be on track to achieve at least a 2.2 degree in any degree discipline. Degrees involving data analytics or a behavioural science or psychology component would be of particular interest.

You will have a real passion for problem solving and the curiosity to understand business challenges and deliver innovative solutions. You will also have strong numerical and interpersonal skills and the confidence to champion new initiatives.

Please note that our undergraduate placement opportunities are open only to penultimate-year students (those who will be returning to their final year of study after their placement with us). All our undergraduate programmes have a fixed start date, commencing 3 July 2023.
