Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), which claims to be the UK’s largest automotive design, engineering and manufacturing employer is adding 1,000 jobs at its factory in Solihull, near Birmingham in what it called its “most ambitious growth plan in recent history”.

The company on Thursday (10 November) began advertising over 1,000 jobs “being created in support of the business’s stated ambition to deliver 40 significant product actions over the next five years thanks to a multi billion pound investment in product creation”, JLR said in a statement.

HR director Des Thurlby said: “This is great news for Solihull. We shall be increasing the plant workforce by more than 25%. We have a loyal and committed workforce at Solihull. These jobs are well paid with great benefits. We provide high quality training and development for all our employees and we expect to receive many thousands of applications.”

The recruitment campaign using national print and radio advertisements is after production operators and skilled trades people.
