Special Operations

From extreme all-terrain capability to finely tuned sports performance – our vehicles excel on and off the road. But it’s our SVO division that takes them to the next level and beyond by fulfilling the wildest dreams of our drivers. This is where you come in, Dream Maker.



    Area Overview

    It’s not every day you come across high performance versions of existing models, luxury bespoke commissions, heritage models or individually tailored vehicles that set pulses racing. Unless you join us at Jaguar Land Rover’s Special Vehicle Operations.

    Dreams are flawless, sheer perfection, filled with desires and unimaginable aspirations beyond one’s reach. Dreams are what Special Operations stands for. We’re not looking for the everyday makers; we’re on the search for Dream Makers to join our journey.

    Our exclusive vehicles offer customers a sense of true individuality, combining discerning tastes and personal ambitions with the highest standards. Special Vehicle Operations products like the Range Rover Autobiography Black, Range Rover Sport SVR and Jaguar Project 7 represent the very pinnacle of our iconic brands. This is where we take luxury, performance and capability to new levels, making SVO one of the most exciting departments within Jaguar Land Rover.

    With a dedicated engineering centre at our Gaydon site and a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Coventry, we’re now searching for the very finest talent to realise our ambitious vision.


    Given the ambition and passion ever present in the Special Vehicle Operations team, our Dream Makers need to have outstanding technical knowledge, as well as superb communication, problem-solving and interpersonal skills. Well organised and motivated, we’ll expect you to be committed, flexible and ready to work under pressure. With creative flair and a customer-focused approach, you’ll be tenacious and proactive in your pursuit of key goals, achieving results and managing change with calm, collected ease.


    Our Special Vehicles Operations workshop produces world-class flagship models, including armoured, limited edition, bespoke, diplomatic, royal, and commercial vehicles. Our ambitious plans for the future are centred on options for performance enhancement, sport designs and personalisation, and when you join our manufacturing team you’ll use all your experience of systems, processes and functions to deliver the highest level of quality for our VIP customers. Key responsibilities include body, interior and exterior fitting, show car preparation and finessing, but we’ll expect you to be confident at developing processes and resolving build issues too. You’ll also carry out ‘one-off’ fixes and assisting with a continuous improvement (Kaizen) approach by using problem solving tools.


    Our SVO engineers are pivotal in ensuring our most awe-inspiring products are designed, developed, and delivered on time, and within budget. It’s a unique chance to directly impact some of the most exciting and prestigious vehicles we have ever produced. We are currently searching for highly skilled project and specialist engineers to look after a range of vehicle aspects and programmes. This could range from areas such as vehicle engineering, chassis and trim accessories to quality and programme management. Join us here, and you’ll liaise with internal partners in areas like Design, Core Engineering, Manufacturing/AME and D&R to ensure seamless product development. And of course, you’ll also work closely with our CAD Engineers and Programmes team, as well as external suppliers. All whilst playing a key part in developing some of the most innovative product solutions in the industry, taking them from concept through to launch.
