LOCATION: Gaydon, Warwickshire


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.

This Senior Buyer role is an exciting opportunity to join a rapidly expanding and developing area of the business focussed on lithium ion batteries or power electronics. The position is to develop truly global commodity strategies that drive long-term improvements in quality, cost and delivery performance for Jaguar Land Rover, its customers and suppliers.

In your role, you’ll work with part manufacturers and take appropriate action to resolve any issues which may arise. This will include updating all project documents and support in the completion of these reports to seniors.  You’ll work with internal and external stakeholders at a senior level as well as suppliers overseas. Building, developing and growing relationships will be vital to the success of your projects. Taking responsibility and being proactive with complex issues, leading cost negotiations, and developing cost reduction road maps will all be within your remit.


For this exciting technology led role you’ll need previous buying and negotiating experience within a purchasing or other commercial environment. Strong project management, business acumen, analytical skills along with some experience in supplier relationship management will be required. We will expect you to have good influencing and relationship management skills at a senior level. Self-motivation, problem solving skills and being a strategic thinker will be desirable.  Any experience within an electrical environment would be an advantage.


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 a performance-related bonus scheme. All this and more makes Jaguar Land Rover the perfect place to continue your journey.
