JLR launches major recruitment drive
Tata owned Jaguar-Land Rover (JLR) has announced a major drive to recruit 600 engineers and technical staff to work on its 700-million-pounds projects to develop a new generation of cleaner and more eco-friendly vehicles.
The initiative comes only weeks after JLR was bought by Indian car giant Tata Motors from Ford for 1.5 billion pounds but the former is not directly involved with the project though it approved the new plan.
"This recruitment drive demonstrates Jaguar Land Rover's confidence in our future. With our new owners, we have entered an exciting era with stunning new models and ambitious technologies," newly-appointed chief executive David Smith said yesterday.
The company has invested in sustainable technologies to meet EU emissions target and was looking for experienced, degree-educated engineers to work on a variety of "ground-breaking" projects.
Most of the jobs will be based at the group's development centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire.
Besides, there are a "significant number" of vacancies in its purchasing, finance and human resources departments. It is also launching a programme aimed at recruiting more than 80 graduate trainees as well as 60 apprentices under an Advanced Modern Apprenticeship scheme announced in March.
The company did concede, however, that it would have to "spread our net fairly widely" to meet its engineering numbers and did not rule out recruiting abroad, including in India.
