JLR announces 300 new jobs in the Midlands


JLR recently announced it is recruiting 300 new technicians and test engineers in the West Midlands. The roles will support the continued growth of Range Rover production and development of next generation electric models.

Of the 300 roles, the UK-based luxury car manufacturer is recruiting around 100 maintenance technicians for its Solihull plant to operate and maintain highly automated, precision, production facilities in a new body shop costing around £130m. The new body shop will support an intended increase in Range Rover and Range Rover Sport production by 30% in future quarters. 

Alongside this, technicians will also be trained to work on an additional approximately £70m new body production system to support production of the highly anticipated new electric Range Rover at Solihull.
