Job Title: Lead Engineer Ancillaries - Component Systems
Department: Powertrain Engineering
Salary: £35,500 - £50,000
Location: Whitley, Coventry
WHAT TO EXPECT
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.
The Lead Engineer is responsible for leading a team of engineers to develop transmission ancillary components for automatic transmissions. The ancillary components are vital to the function of the transmission and include items such as heatshields, acoustic covers, thermal encapsulation and breathers as an example. This role encompasses all aspects of product development from specification of JLR's requirements through packaging, advanced CAD and CAE techniques to ensure these components meet JLR requirements in the virtual environment through to physical testing of the final design. The Lead Engineer will also work in partnership with our ODEC Teams who provide engineering support to the UK team.
Some of the key accountabilities and responsibilities include and are not limited to: leading the application of the transmission's ancillary components, leading the development of ancillary components to meet vehicle packaging constraints and leading the generation of procedures and updating the DVP status in conjunction with the vehicle testing teams.
A key challenge within the role is to manage complexity across the whole product range where commonality is important but also ensuring specific functional and cost targets are met. Being part of a team that is responsible for delivering one of the most complex and costly components on the car, this role is both challenging and offers great opportunity to develop technically and commercially
WHAT YOU'LL NEED
It is essential that you'll have previous experience of leading the resolution of business, technical and process issues within a Project Team environment. A good working knowledge of product creation & delivery, change control, product definition and change management processes is also essential.
Bring all this to the home of premium innovation, and you will find the opportunities to further your career with a world-class team. Our employees have access to a privilege car purchase scheme, membership of a competitive pension plan, performance related bonus scheme and 26 days holiday entitlement.
