Team at Tata's European Innovation and Development Centre to grow to around 1000, boosting West Midlands region

Jaguar Land Rover owner Tata has created 350 new jobs at its European HQ in the West Midlands and says the move reinforces the region’s status as a global hub for the automotive industry.

The Leamington Spa European Innovation and Development Centre (EIDC), which develops next-generation tech “expected to shape the future” of mobility, will see its team bolstered to around 1000 employees.

Tata says this undisclosed investment will also focus on developing a workforce for the future, with a Centre of Excellence ‘talent hub’ created through local partnerships with the University of Wolverhampton and the University of Warwick.

The EIDC site – which houses engineering support services, two advanced engineering labs and an R&D centre – also caters for the aerospace and industrial machinery sectors in European, US and Asia-Pacific markets.
