An ever-evolving heritage. A truly exciting future. Two of the world’s most iconic brands. Jaguar Land Rover is revered across the globe. Continually pushing the boundaries of innovation and redefining the benchmark for excellence, we set the standards others want to follow. We want to keep it that way too. Which is where you join the journey.


Using state-of-the-art facilities, you’ll provide the power behind our vehicles working in our Powertrain Engineering team. You'll find the ideal balance between performance and sustainability, while responding to the environmental issues that shape our industry.

As Battery Test Technician, you’ll operate across the facility conducting activities in order to ensure that productive output is maintained. You’ll be responsible for providing and maintaining common standardised operational processes, and will seek to optimise operational capability through regular involvement in continuous improvement activities.

In this role, you’ll be required to become highly proficient in test installation, test equipment and instrumentation connections. You’ll also be responsible for start-up and monitor test automation systems (Maccor/Lynx) and issue reporting and resolution on time.

Detailed role description available on request.


Your proven track record in latest environment will mean you have the ability to set-up and run automated testing. In addition to this you’ll have a knowledge of vehicle powertrain configurations including High Voltage / HEV / BEV applications.

Ideally, you’ll have hand fabrication skills, as you’ll create and assemble test jigs from technical drawings. Alongside this you’ll have knowledge of Health and Safety requirements, Risk Assessment, COSHH and MSDS.

Having an Apprenticeship or a NVQ level 3 with 4 years relevant technical experience would be beneficial, alongside strong IT literacy.


Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you’ll find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team, a discounted car purchase and lease scheme for you and your family, membership of a competitive pension plan and performance related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.

The successful candidate for the above role will retain their current employer, i.e. if you are a Jaguar employee you will continue to be administered on the Jaguar grading structure with the associated terms and conditions. If you are a Land Rover employee you will continue to be administered on the Land Rover grading structure with the associated terms and conditions.
