The first of three scheduled recruitment phases will recruit more than 500 semi-skilled production operators, as part of a £1.5bn expansion plan for the Solihull manufacturing plant. Three successive recruitment drives will take the total headcount at the Midlands facility to almost 8000 by early 2015, as part of plans announced by JLR in September 2013.
‘To continue producing award winning vehicles and investing in world-class manufacturing technology, we need to source the best people,’ says Alan Volkaerts, Operations Director at Jaguar Land Rover. ‘Our recruitment drive today reinforces our commitment to the UK automotive industry which also benefits the wider supply chain and overall UK economy.’
Interested in being a part of it? Jaguar Land Rover wants to hear from ‘enthusiastic, flexible and passionate applicants who want to be a part of an exciting, expanding automotive journey, irrespective of previous manufacturing experience’. Successful applicants will undertake a training programme which includes working towards an NVQ II qualification in Business Improvement Techniques.
