Jaguar Land Rover has announced the creation of 1,000 new jobs at its Halewood manufacturing site on Merseyside

Jaguar Land Rover has announced the creation of 1,000 new jobs at its Halewood manufacturing site on Merseyside. Jaguar Land Rover HR Director, Des Thurlby, 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."

The new positions, which will support the on-going significant demand for the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Freelander 2, take the workforce at Halewood to almost 4,500 treble the number employed there just three years ago. The first Evoque rolled off the production line in Halewood in July last year, since then it has been an ongoing success with an Evoque convertible in the foreseeable future.

The Range Rover Evoque has notched up its 90 global awards since launch, it is offered with a choice of three engines, two body styles, three design themes and a wide range of options and accessories. Prices start at £27,955.
