Jaguar Land Rover wants apprentices

Tata-owned Jaguar and Land Rover is investing in future engineers with a new recruitment programme.

Both manufacturers are looking for 60 school leavers to start an advanced apprenticeship.

The programme consists of a 42-month scheme, with the initial period at college. During this time apprentices will earn an NVQ2 in performing engineering operations, an NVQ3 in the chosen trade pathway and a technical certificate, as well as developing wider key skills.

Des Thurlby, human resources director, Jaguar Land Rover, said: "With the two brands investing in the future and a wide range of engineering opportunities and career paths available, there has never been a more exciting time to be an apprentice at Jaguar Land Rover."

The two brands are jointly investing £700 million to develop new technologies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from their vehicles.

Bob Joyce, engineering director, Jaguar Land Rover said: "The need to develop sustainable vehicles is really driving the business and we need bright, forward thinking people to progress these very important projects."

At the end of the initial training period, apprentices will start work at Castle Bromwich, Gaydon or Solihull, continuing studies on a day-to-day basis, with the opportunity to complete a foundation degree or City & Guilds qualification.

The application process is open until May 31.
