Jaguar Land Rover gives its new graduates and apprentices a warm welcome
Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar Land Rover has welcomed nearly 500 hundred new apprentices and graduates to the business this week.
The newcomers, who will be working across all areas of the
business, will be vital in helping shape the company’s autonomous, connected
and electrified future. During their first week, all of the new graduates and
apprentices have visited each of the manufacturing sites and experienced driving
Jaguars and Land Rovers first-hand.
Once again Jaguar Land Rover has proved its commitment to
attract more women to the automotive sector with successful female applicants
making up more than 20 percent of this year’s intake. Ian Harnett, Human
Resources Executive Director, said it is crucial to encourage more young people,
men and women, to consider the automotive industry as an exciting career
“Our graduate, undergraduate and apprenticeship programmes
secure our future pipeline of engineering talent and the delivery of innovative
new Jaguar Land Rover technologies,” he added.
Nearly 200 apprentices will start their programme of learning
on-the-job. Some will undertake a four-year advanced apprenticeship revolving
around the skilled trades such as mechatronics maintenance, while others will
begin a six-year degree focussed on filling the skill gaps in areas such as
software engineering, design and development specialists.
The new graduates will undergo a two-year programme, which
will see them work across various departments in the business alongside their
structured personal and professional development. More than a third of this
year’s intake took part in Jaguar Land Rover’s undergraduate scheme.
Earlier this year, the business also welcomed 370 new
undergraduates on their year-long placements.
