When you join us in Special Operations, you’ll work in one of our three areas:
Event Vehicle Operations (EVO)
We are trusted providers of specialised vehicle preparation and event services to the entire business. We prepare vehicles for all of our key events including motor shows, press drives and magazine shoots. Apprentices work on anything from engine and gearbox removal to bodywork profiling and have 11 training cars to work on.
We restore and recreate the most iconic past Jaguar Land Rover vehicles, and maintain parts supply for classics, some of which are sold direct to our customers. Apprentices will learn how to work on classics such as the E types, XJS and the Range Rover V8 engine.
Special Vehicle Operations (SVO)
We bring to life our luxury and performance halo derivatives of core models. We also look after our commissioning suite, where customers can configure bespoke vehicles. Apprentices will become skilled technicians on these unique vehicles including the F-Pace, Velar, Evoque and F-types.
The Advanced Apprentice (level 3) Special Operations is a four-year programme, delivered under standards approved by the IfA (Institute for Apprenticeships). This exciting programme will develop your practical skills and cultivate the knowledge you need for your role. This is all achieved whilst developing your knowledge, skills and business behaviours such as teamworking and problem-solving. A network of Work Based Learning Managers and line managers will regularly review your progress and provide support, advice and guidance along the way, to enable you to perform at your best.
You will learn how to work safely at all times and make a technical contribution to either the design, development, quality assurance, manufacture, installation, commissioning, decommissioning, operation or maintenance of our products or equip
