Jaguar Land Rover announced that a record 35,000 people submitted their candidacy for the ,000 new jobs at Jaguar Land Rover's Halewood manufacturing facility, near Liverpool in the UK.
Over six times the people needed to fill the positions announced their candidacy within 24 hours. After the first week had ended, JLR had 20,000 online registrations, and the good news is that registrations have not closed yet.

The 1,000 jobs will support production of the Evoque and Freenalder 2, and will increase the workforce at Halewood to almost 4,500 – trebling the number employed there compared to three years ago.

"JLR has a clear ambition for continued growth and we are delighted that so many people want to join us on that journey. We are very pleased with the quality of candidates applying for these new roles and more than 100 applicants have already started with us. The scale of the response to our recruitment campaign reflects JLR’s growing reputation as an employer of choice in the North West," said JLR HR Director, Des Thurlby.
