There’s scope for talent at JCB

JCB is a world-class, family business. We are proud of our achievements and dedicated to looking after our people. If you’re an Electrical, Electronics or Electrical & Electronics Systems Engineer, you can expect a role that comes with tremendous variety and the chance to take projects from paper to production.

About Engineering at JCB

If you want fast-paced and innovative, you’ve come to the right place: as part of our Engineering team, you’ll be the talent behind our hugely successful global range. With one in every two Backhoe Loaders made by JCB, we’re leaders in our market – but we’re not content with this. Instead, we constantly strive to build better, smarter machinery, which has led to some amazing achievements: for example, our vehicles feature advanced systems and we’ve made it into the record books! With an engine designed by our expert team, the JCB DieselMax car is the proud holder of the world diesel land speed record. And that’s just one example of our Engineers’ varied remit. With the chance to get involved with different areas and travel abroad if required, you’re free to push the limits of your technical abilities in a fascinating field.

About your role

As part of a highly focused team, you’ll work on exciting new programmes for our Backhoe Loaders. Your responsibilities will depend on your experience and skills, but could involve taking new design concepts through to production; developing vehicle control systems; selecting electrical components; or analysing the performance of safety-related parts of control systems. Whatever role you play day-to-day, you can guarantee that you’ll be working closely with customers both within and outside JCB.

About you

Ideally, you’ll bring at least an HND (or equivalent) in an Electrical/Electronic Engineering discipline or Computer Science. You’ll certainly have either a grasp of control system logic, or experience of off highway electronic control systems or machine electrical/electronic systems. Whatever your background, you’ll be able to troubleshoot and fix electrical/electronic/systems faults. And at the same time, you’ll support the team, working flexibly across Electronics and Electrical. If there are gaps in your knowledge, we’ll help you to up-skill. You therefore need to be hands-on, ready to learn and passionate about what you do. We look for adaptable, team-focused people who thrive in fast-paced settings and work with a sense of urgency.

Rewards and benefits

Our achievements – now and in the future – are down to our 14,000-strong worldwide workforce. To say thank you, we give everyone here career development and the chance to progress. We also pay great attention to employees’ health and welfare. You can expect medical insurance and dental care schemes, plus access to our healthy living centre. Naturally, this comes with a competitive salary, company pension and 33 days’ annual leave.
