JLR recruitment increase with 250 electrification engineers jobs

With an announcement of 250 electrification engineers jobs to work at the Gaydon and Whitley Facilities, JLR has ramped up their recruitment.

These roles are set to propel JLR’s development for the next generation of electric vehicles due to be launched by 2030 with its Reimagine strategy.

Included in the new roles, the luxury car manufacturer are specifically recruiting over 40 battery engineering roles, who will work across disciplines such as advanced energy storage systems, battery cell design and cell stack assemblies, in addition to hardware and software essential to electrical and battery systems. With the roles being dedicated to JLR’s next generation vehicle architectures.

These additional roles will strengthen JLR’s core competencies in battery cell chemistry, design and systems, reinforcing a modern BEV value chain covering Agratas’ Somerset gigafactory which will supply cells to JLR as the main anchor customer.

The remaining roles span specialisms in propulsion, including propulsion software, calibration and controls, HV system integration, electrical system component design and more. Aspects of the roles will also focus on improving fast charging experiences for JLR clients.

All 250 roles are now live and accepting applications online for global candidates with the relevant skills.

The roles will be based at JLR’s Gaydon Engineering Centre and the company’s £250m Future Energy Lab in Whitley, Coventry, where JLR develops and tests batteries and Electric Drive Units (EDUs). This facility enables JLR to rapidly test electric vehicles in extreme-weather climate chambers, reducing emissions associated with sending fleets of prototypes around the world.

Thomas Mueller, JLR Executive Director of Product Engineering, said: ‘’The realisation of our Reimagine strategy is dependent on our investment in people and technology. As we continue to invest in our facilities, we are now seeking very talented people to help us develop advancements in propulsion technology that will underpin our next generation modern luxury vehicles.’’

Freddy Gunnarsson, JLR Cell Design Manager said: ‘We are ramping up our work, converting cutting-edge science into battery propulsion systems that offer our clients unique driving and charging experiences, expected of modern luxury vehicles. This is an exciting opportunity for battery chemistry experts to help define the next generation of electrical powertrains.’’ 

The next electric vehicle to launch will be the new Range Rover Electric manufactured in Solihull, UK, for which clients can join the waiting list.
