Halewood Manufacturing Facility - Range Rover Evoque

With Jaguar Land Rover’s rapid growth, the company has announced several recruitment drives aiming to hire manufacturing and engineering staff. Back in October of 2011, the company was recognized for its ‘Ultimate Destination’ recruitment campaign that sought to hire 600 recruits, with a focus on manufacturing, purchasing, financing, and engineering professionals. The following month, Jaguar Land Rover initiated anther recruitment drive that added 1,000 positions at its manufacturing facility in Solihull. The November recruitment efforts were on top of the 3,000 workers already hired in 2011.

The new hires at Halewood will bring the total workforce at the facility to almost 4,500.

Today, Jaguar Land Rover has announced a new recruitment campaign to fill 1,000 new openings at its Halewood manufacturing plant. The additional shifts created by the hirings will bolster production of the Land Rover Freelander/LR2 and the popular Range Rover Evoque. You may recall that just a few days before the end of the year we posted a gallery of photos showing the Evoque being assembled at the Halewood plant. A week later, we added even more photos that revealed the paint shop and more body-in-white photos. 

“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. “JLR’s supply chain is also set to benefit, with thousands more jobs expected to be created,” he added. “Our commitment to expand the Halewood workforce and increase production is great news for JLR, for Merseyside and for the wider UK economy.”

The new hires at Halewood will bring the total workforce at the facility to almost 4,500. After this hiring effort, the number of workers at the plant will have tripled over the past three years. The recruitment drive is targeting production operators, supervisors, and engineers.
