A global hiring initiative at Jaguar Land Rover aims to fill more than 800 digital and engineering vacancies within the company, in the UK, Ireland, India, China and Hungary. The move is part of a strategic business plan to become a digital, data-driven organization. It is therefore looking to recruit skilled individuals from the digital technology industry.
JLR believes this is an ideal opening for those who have just lost their jobs at technology firms. It has posts in the autonomous driving arena, artificial intelligence, electrification, cloud software, data science, machine learning and many other fields. Benefits of working for the auto maker include hybrid working and the opportunity to forge a new career path.
Anthony Battle, chief information officer at Jaguar Land Rover, said, “We are further strengthening our data and digital skills base so we can deliver our Reimagine strategy and become an electric-first business from 2025 and achieve carbon net zero by 2039. Our digital transformation journey is well underway but being able to recruit highly skilled digital workers is an important next step. We are pleased to be able to provide opportunities to talented individuals with digital capabilities.”
Dave Nesbitt, JLR’s digital product platform director, commented, “Jaguar Land Rover is transforming to an electric-first business, and we are creating some of the most digitally advanced vehicles ever seen. Through our products we will create new experiences, new levels of intimacy and connected car services for our customers, to give our clients a truly modern luxury experience.”
