Jaguar Land Rover has created more than 1000 new jobs at its manufacturing plant in Solihull. The 25 per cent boost in workforce is thanks to a multi billion pound investment in new models, which will deliver “40 significant product actions over the next five years”, according to JLR.
HR Director at JLR, Des Thurlby said: "This is great news for Solihull. We have a loyal and committed workforce” and “these jobs are well paid with great benefits. We provide high quality training and development for all our employees and we expect to receive many thousands of applications."
New positions at the Solihull plant – where the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Discovery and Defender are built - include maintenance electricians, mechanical fitters, technicians and toolmakers.
JLR also recently announced that it planned to “accelerate innovation” by investing £100 million in an advanced research facility at Warwick Manufacturing Group.
