News : JLR strengthened by 273 new graduates
Jaguar Land Rover continues to boost its own engineering capacity, with the recruitment of a further 273 graduates. This latest tranche of graduates takes the total number recruited in the last three years to almost 1000, underlining the company’s commitment to develop its next generation of cars and their drivetrains in the UK post-Tata go-it-alone era
The new engineering recruits have come from many of the UK’s leading academic institutions, and are joining at an exciting time in the company’s rich history. During their first day with the company the graduates took part in an in-depth introductory programme where they met with members of the Jaguar Land Rover Board, familiarised themselves with the latest vehicle line up and had a glimpse at some of the products of the future.
Graduates joining Jaguar Land Rover will be allocated a home department based on their specialism but will, over the course of the two year programme have an opportunity to gain experience in a number of functions from Product Development and Purchasing to Logistics and Finance. Dr. Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO said: ‘Jaguar Land Rover’s drive towards excellence in research, design and innovation has seen us invest heavily in our business but our future success lies in our ability to deliver even more advanced and sustainable products.’
