Jaguar Land Rover Hires 1,000 Workers to Boost UK Production
“These 1,000 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,” said Jaguar Land Rover HR Director, Des Thurlby.
According to the official statement, the jobs are needed in order to keep up with demand for the new Range Rover Evoque and the Freelander. Halewood has in fact now tripled its workforce in the past three years.
"JLR's supply chain is also set to benefit, with thousands more jobs expected to be created," Thurlby added. "Our commitment to expand the Halewood workforce and increase production is great news for JLR, for Merseyside and for the wider UK economy."
