Jaguar Land Rover launches recruitment campaign at its new Engine Manufacturing Centre

Jaguar Land Rover has launched the first significant campaign to recruit 1,400 employees at its new state-of-the-art Engine Manufacturing Centre based at the i54 business park near Wolverhampton. The first phase will see the creation of around 600 manufacturing roles at the plant in the next four years.

Jaguar Land Rover is investing more than £500 million in its new Engine Manufacturing Centre, bringing engine supply back to its production doorstep and providing significant new resources to support continued innovation.

High technology

These roles will be required to support the manufacture of Jaguar Land Rover’s new family of high technology, low emission engines.

The team will be responsible for the assembly of engine components, operation of the plant’s world class 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.

"Next phase”

"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.”

Jaguar Land Rover has worked in partnership with Wolverhampton City Council, Staffordshire County Council and South Staffordshire Council to create a tailored training programme for local unemployed people to develop the skills required at the plant.

Training programme

The six-week training programme will cover topics such as enhanced literacy and numeracy skills, how to approach competency based interviews, team exercises and interview preparation.

The programme will be managed and co-ordinated by Jobcentre Plus across Wolverhampton and Staffordshire.
