Jaguar Land Rover is creating another 1000 new jobs at its Halewood Operations manufacturing facility, near Liverpool in the UK. The new positions, which will support the on-going significant demand for the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Freelander 2, take the workforce at Halewood to almost 4500 – treble the number employed there just three years ago.
Jaguar Land Rover HR Director, Des Thurlby, commented: ‘These 1000 new jobs are further evidence of JLR’s clear ambition for continued growth. We are moving Halewood to three shifts and 24-hour operation to meet increased global demand for our products.
‘JLR’s supply chain is also set to benefit, with thousands more jobs expected to be created,” he added. “Our commitment to expand the Halewood workforce and increase production is great news for JLR, for Merseyside and for the wider UK economy.’
The new jobs recruited at Halewood will include production operators, supervisors and engineers. Reinforcing JLR’s commitment to expanding its skills base, all new employees joining the production line will receive training towards an Intermediate (Level 2) Apprenticeship.
