Gaydon, England – Jaguar Land Rover has announced it is launching a major recruitment drive to attract up to 600 new employees. The focus of the campaign will be to recruit engineers to work on new technology and product development programs, along with key vacancies in purchasing, finance and human resources. The company was acquired by India’s Tata Motors from Ford early in June.
Jaguar Land Rover is investing £700 million in sustainable technologies to improve the environmental performance of its vehicles, and is looking for engineers to work within the product development function.
It is also launching a new program for over 80 graduates who will join the business in September. They will participate in a number of activities and events over a two-year development period while integrating themselves into their chosen departments.
“This recruitment drive demonstrates Jaguar Land Rover’s confidence in our future,” said CEO David Smith. “With our new owners, we have entered an exciting era with stunning new models and ambitious technologies. I can’t remember a better time to be part of the British car industry, and certainly it is a brilliant time for Jaguar Land Rover. Sustainability is a business imperative and we need both experienced and newly-qualified engineers to progress the technology projects of the future.”
