Jaguar Land Rover launches £21,000+ jobs campaign at its new Engine Manufacturing Centre

jlrjobsJaguar Land Rover has launched a phased campaign to recruit 600 people over the next four years at its new Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton.

JLR said this was the first significant campaign to recruit 1,400 employees for the plant.

The company is investing more than £500 million at the Centre “bringing engine supply back to its production doorstep providing significant new resource to support continued innovation”.

These job roles will support the manufacture of a new family of high technology, low emission engines and be responsible for the assembly of engine components, operation of the plant’s manufacturing equipment, supporting tool changes and material line feed.

Trevor Leeks, the Engine Manufacturing Centre’s new Operations Director said, “Our new Engine Manufacturing Centre is a significant strand of Jaguar Land Rover’s global growth ambitions and it is critical that we have a world-class manufacturing team at the heart of our new plant.

“We are entering the next phase of the programme with our small team moving onsite just last week. Today, we are starting to build our operational team for the future with the launch of our recruitment campaign.

“We are looking for dedicated, committed and passionate people to join the Jaguar Land Rover team at the Engine Manufacturing Centre.”

The Engine Manufacturing Centre’s team currently stands at around 100 people including 18 apprentices and 6 graduates. In addition to the manufacturing roles at the plant, there are also additional opportunities available in a range of engineering and supervisory roles.

The starting salary for a manufacturing specialist role is being advertised at £21,821 a year and perks can include paid overtime, shift premium, privilege car purchase scheme, pension scheme and 25 days holiday plus bank holidays.
