Jaguar Land Rover launches 2015 apprentice recruitment drive

Jaguar Land Rover has launched its 2015 apprenticeship recruitment campaign.  The company is looking for up to 200 new recruits to join the 620-strong group currently undertaking the scheme across its six UK sites.  Jaguar Land Rover currently accounts for approximately half of the total apprentices employed in the UK automotive OEM sector.

The award-winning Jaguar Land Rover apprenticeship programme provides students with a strong blend of real world experience and academic learning.  Applicants can choose from either the four year Advanced Apprenticeship aimed at GCSE students or the six year Higher Apprenticeship aimed at A-Level entrants.  In both cases, recruits can look forward to working in cutting-edge product development and manufacturing environments developing vehicles for two of the most iconic global motoring marques.

Mike Wright, Executive Director Jaguar Land Rover said:  “We are investing significantly in the future of Jaguar Land Rover, transforming the business and both brands with the expansion of our facilities in UK and overseas, as well as the development of the next generation of class-leading products.” 

“Just as important is our investment in developing the next generation of engineers and innovators to help our business achieve its ambitious growth plans.  Our apprenticeships continue to attract the highest calibre of people interested in combining paid employment with fully-funded vocational qualifications.”
