Jaguar Land Rover is seeking more than 1,000 talented engineers, supervisors and production operators to help launch the all new Range Rover Evoque working at Halewood Operations, Liverpool in 2011.
Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover, commented, 'The Range Rover Evoque is a significant step in the company's plan to grow the JLR business. It is a truly global car and will be sold in over 160 markets around the world. Around 85% of the models built at Halewood will be exported making a significant contribution to the UK economy.' The Range Rover Evoque is the smallest, lightest, most fuel efficient Range Rover ever and it will make its global public debut at the Paris Motor Show on September 30.
Halewood Operations is currently home to the award-winning Land Rover Freelander 2. The plant launched the Freelander 2 in late 2006 and since then, the model has collected 30 automotive awards globally. It is Land Rover's best-seller globally and, in the UK, sales so far this year are up 62 per cent versus the same period in 2009.
Michael Straughan, Operations Director at Halewood, stated, 'Halewood Operations has a reputation for excellent manufacturing quality and is recognised throughout the industry as a centre of excellence for lean manufacturing. The Range Rover Evoque has been eagerly anticipated since we first showed the LRX concept in Detroit in 2008, so we are looking forward to welcoming some enthusiastic new recruits to the team to deliver the Range Rover Evoque to the marketplace.'
