Yesterday, the company’s CEO Dr Ralf Speth picked up an industry award from a jury of leading European journalists “in recognition of his significant contribution in transforming the fortunes of the leading British business and its iconic motoring marques”. Ian Callum, Jaguar’s Design Director, picked up the best design award.
Meanwhile, JLR yesterday began the recruitment of the 1,700 new jobs first announced in last September 2013. The first phase will recruit more than 500 semi-skilled production operator jobs to support the production of new vehicles at the firm’s Solihull site.
The recruitment of the 1,700 new jobs will be conducted in three phases with the next two kicking off later this year and early in 2015
William Wigley (pictured), an aluminium body shop group leader at the company said: “For job seekers at any stage of life, a job is important but also the opportunity to progress in your career and look to the future is equally important. I have never been so proud to work for a global, iconic, world-class manufacturer in my 25 years of working life and am pleased to contribute to this success.”
