Tata-owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has said it is recruiting 250 electrification engineers to work at its UK facilities in Gaydon and Whitley.

The roles are open to global candidates and will help accelerate the development of JLR’s next-gen pure electric vehicles set to launch by 2030 under its Reimagine strategy.

Additionally, the firms says it will strengthen a ‘modern EV value chain’ covering Agratas’ Somerset gigafactory which will supply cells to JLR as the main anchor customer.

The roles are specifically geared for battery engineering, encompassing advanced energy storge systems, battery design and cell stack assemblies.

They will be based at JLR’s Gaydon Engineering Centre and the company’s £250m Future Energy Lab in Whitley, Coventry, where JLR develops and tests batteries and Electric Drive Units (EDUs).

This facility enables JLR to rapidly test electric vehicles in extreme-weather climate chambers, reducing emissions associated with sending fleets of prototypes around the world.
