The scope of our finance team is considerable – from providing cross-functional business partnering to our operational colleagues, to supporting the delivery of commercial projects, delivering financial analysis and insights, and driving budgeting, forecasting, profit planning, strategy and investment appraisals. Along the way, we constantly harness ongoing improvements in data analytics to bring timely insights to live projects and influence the decisions taken today that will shape JLR tomorrow.

During your apprenticeship, you will take on diverse roles within different areas of finance: business partnering, management information & analytics, global financial shared services and group finance (including treasury, tax, accounting & compliance). Being responsible for core financial activities will provide you with a thorough grounding of accountancy fundamentals to support your examination success.

The programme will provide you with a broad range of experiences through on-the-job learning and mentoring by senior finance leaders and past graduates. This will enable you to gain technical finance knowledge (CIMA level) whilst learning all about process improvement and optimisation. We want you to bring a fresh perspective to everything we do and will give you a unique opportunity to recommend changes and enhance the way we work.
