More than 1,100 jobs are set to be created at Jaguar Land Rover's (JLR) advanced manufacturing facility in Castle Bromwich. 27/07/2012
The UK's largest automotive design, engineering and manufacturing employer will expand its workforce to support a range of new Jaguar models, including the new XF Sport brake, which is due for launch later this year.
Not only will the unveiling of these new models create positions at Castle Bromwich, but the company expects thousands more roles to be created across the country in the supply chain.
'Innovation in design, engineering and technology is at the core of our business. For the UK, this means we will continue to invest in new products, develop new technologies and enhance the skills of our employees,' said Dr Ralph Speth, JLR chief executive officer.
Human resources (HR) director at the company, Des Thurlby, said, 'We have embarked on the most ambitious recruitment campaign in the company's history, hiring 8,000 people in the last two years. We provide high quality training and development for all of our employees, so this latest announcement is great news for the West Midlands and the UK supply chain.'
Despite difficult economic conditions, JLR has performed well recently. In the 2011/12 fiscal year, it achieved record profits of £1.5billion.
