A word from
Tata Motors Design Tech Centre is almost unrecognisable compared to the small company that I joined in September 2005 as the second employee. It was a long and often difficult journey to set up brand new policies, procedures and the best way to do things for the company, especially with the limited resources available to us when we were first established.
From those humble beginnings the Design Tech Centre has evolved and grown. Today, the Design Tech centre employs approximately 200 industry specialists at our purpose-built design and innovation centre, based on the University of Warwick campus. Design Tech centre aims to employ, train, develop, and retain excellent people and to be an employer of choice. One of the challenges in attracting new recruits can be the relative lack of awareness of Tata Motors in the UK, with many people having heard of Jaguar Land Rover, which is also owned by
Tata Motors, but are unfamiliar with the Design Tech Centre’s opportunities and expertise. I am very proud that over the years the Design Tech Centre is becoming recognised as a serious contender in automotive R&D and design in the UK, with employees from diverse backgrounds and nationalities.
The right people for us are those who question what they are doing and why, not just those who follow the process, without thinking that there might be a better way of doing things.
