Jaguar Land Rover Flooded with Apllications from Graduates

Jaguar Land Rover has received over 6,500 applications for the 280 graduate recruitment places included in the company’s 2011 program that is aimed at supporting a multi billion pound investment scheme for new product development.

"Our plans over the next few years will see us spending billions of pounds to research and develop exciting new products and technologies. This investment will secure Jaguar Land Rover's position as an innovative, world-class manufacturer of luxury vehicles," said Jaguar Land Rover HR Director, Des Thurlby.

Applications have increased by 68 percent compared to last year and have more than tripled in two years. This year’s graduates will receive a variety of roles across the company’s operations - from Product Development Engineering, Manufacturing, Finance, Human Resources, Marketing, IT and Purchasing.

"Seeing the number of graduate applications triple in just two years reflects the increasingly positive perception people have of our business," Des Thurlby added. "We are working hard to ensure that their careers with us will be challenging and exciting. I am delighted that we have received so many applications from such high quality candidates."

Jaguar Land Rover’s two year graduate scheme has been created to offer candidates a mix of technical know-how and personal development required for a rewarding career.

The long-term investment Jaguar Land Rover has been making in its people has also been recognised. Successful applicants will be working for one of the UK's top graduate firms after it was named in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list in 2010,” stated the press release.
