Our Commercial team is constantly evolving to ensure we continue to offer differentiated, modern luxury brands that attract and retain customers in a fast-changing digital world.

Commercial Undergraduate Programme

Our Commercial function is undergoing a profound transformation to drive simplicity, achieve growth and realise our go to market strategy. We’re here to make customers smile at every touchpoint – and you will play a pivotal role in making this happen.

The Commercial Undergraduate scheme provides real insight into working at JLR, giving you fundamental business and digital skills, whilst allowing you the insight to choose the graduate scheme that matches your talents and interests after successful completion of the undergraduate scheme.

As you help to plan, grow and fine-tune our business, you will undertake two different placements with digital and business teams, whilst delivering a transformation mission as part of a group. From day one, you can expect real impact on the way we think and work.

Commercial Analytics Undergraduate Programme

At the heart of our data analytics team, you will grow your technical analytics and data science skills and gain a deep understanding of tools and data inputs and outputs. However, these are far from purely technical roles – we will ensure you understand the broader strategic context that will enable you to turn theoretical potential into real-life business value. In short, you will learn how to make the complicated simple and relatable, setting you up for a wide range of roles. The insight you gain into machine learning, visualisation and data engineering will open up endless possibilities with JLR – so the only limit on your progress will be your ambition.

For the Commercial Analytics undergraduate programme, we will accept any degree discipline, but we are particularly interested in degrees incorporating data insights or data engineering.

In addition, you will have 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 or on an integrated master’s after their placement with us). All our undergraduate programmes have a fixed start date, commencing 1st July 2024.


Our 2024 undergraduate programme salary will be £21,377. You’ll also enjoy a generous holiday allowance, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, an excellent pension scheme and access to a wide range of deals and discounts from retailers and sports clubs.
