Jaguar Land Rover has today announced the creation of 1,000 new jobs at its Halewood Operations manufacturing facility near Liverpool.
According to a statement, the new positions, which will support work on the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Freelander 2, will take the workforce at Halewood to almost 4,500.
Des Thurlby, Jaguar Land Rover human resources director, said:
‘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.
‘JLR’s supply chain is also set to benefit, with thousands more jobs expected to be created. Our commitment to expand the Halewood workforce and increase production is great news for JLR, for Merseyside and for the wider UK economy.’
