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.

We’re changing how our customers choose their next Jaguar or Land Rover, and we’re using some incredible cutting edge design technology to achieve this. Change isn’t something we’re scared of, and how we market our world-class vehicles is certainly taking a daring step into the future.

Instead of relying on the tried and tested, we’ve taken the plunge into the next generation of marketing tools, with our Digital Assets team leading the way. By generating incredibly realistic marketing materials, including computer-generated photographs and videos, we can show off our vehicles in their full glory before they’ve even been manufactured. You’ll be joining a team which is influencing not only our future marketing strategies, but those of the entire industry.


The Digital Assets team residing within Marketing, Sales and Services is the primary centre of competence at Jaguar Land Rover, responsible for the creation of all CGI digital assets and digital media to support product launch communications activities across multiple business functions for consumer facing content. 

The Digital Assets team is defined into three core areas of competence; Development, Model Production and Imagery Production. Each area is responsible for pioneering and executing its distinct function aligned to core JLR and Digital Assets strategy, objectives and programme deliverables.

In your new role as a Lead Data Preparation Artist, you’ll be responsible for the delivery of Product Data Models (PDM) which capture the elements of detail required to create photorealistic digital assets. This includes supporting team members with process and technical knowledge, including data management, change management, file structuring, CAD data striping, UV quality, material application, shadow calculation, feature dependency configuration logic and reference requirements management.

To achieve success, you’ll:

  • Share your expertise in Portable Data Model (PDM) creation with fellow team members
  • Generate high quality models using multiple data inputs
  • Utilise the Product Model Build Specification Document to ensure work is actioned and tracked
  • Capture and escalate issues and opportunities


You’ll be an expert in computer-generated imagery data preparation and modelling software, bringing expertise in Autodesk Maya, Deltagen and Adobe Photoshop. You’ll be a natural leader, and capable of supporting and motivating fellow highly-skilled digital artists. You’ll be an expert when it comes to data / file management, and you’ll be used to working to strict technical processes and standards.

You’ll need to be:

  • A CGI expert, specifically within data management and preparation
  • Driven by quality and attention to detail
  • Highly creative and excited by computer-aided design technology
  • A natural leader


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. #LI
