ADVERTISED SALARY: £31,500 - £36,500
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.

LOCATION: Gaydon, Warwickshire/Coventry, West Midlands


Every product. Every process. Every environment. Our vehicles continually set the benchmark for luxury, innovation and performance thanks to our unrivalled commitment to infinite detail. Join us within our Purchasing teams, and you’ll be the driving force behind it all.

It is a very exciting time to join Jaguar Land Rover. With the development of advanced and sophisticated technology across the business, leading products need to be sourced and provided by one of the top Purchasing teams in the country. This is why we are looking for you to join our team. We are at the forefront of the industry when it comes to new technologies, manufacturing techniques and engineering. The opportunity within the business is only limited by your desire to succeed. Career progression is encouraged and so is the opportunity to travel with your work if required.

Being responsible for the global strategy and development, in the role of a Strategic Buyer, you’ll deliver commodity strategies, company and programme targets for cost, quality and technology, which will include supporting supplier relationships through a management and performance process. You’ll be responsible for supporting the Global Sourcing Process and the associated targets, and you’ll strategically manage suppliers in order to get costs-down for the whole business, using the necessary purchasing techniques at your disposal. You’ll also lead stakeholder alignment in relation to programme cost targets , programme finance,  take rates and volumes, delivery buying teams and utilising specialists as required across car lines. Your role will report to the Global Commodity Lead.


To be successful in this role, you’ll have previous experience or a very good knowledge of Purchasing or Supply Chain processes. You’ll possess the ability to combine short-term deliverables with the development of medium- and long-term strategies, and you’ll show the confidence and experience to work independently. Being a results-driven individual, you’ll also demonstrate tenacity, drive and perseverance along with the ability to develop business aligned strategies in a complex and highly demanding environment.

Because of the amount of cross-functional work that will be required, you’ll require stakeholder management skills and the ability to influence people, whether from across the business or externally. Ideally, you’ll have knowledge or experience within a manufacturing environment, but this is not essential. A driving licence will be required for this role.


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.

Jaguar Land Rover is committed to equal opportunity for all.
