JLR wants more staff in its engineering, human resources, finance and purchasing departments. The recruitment drive comes as the business transitions to new ownership under Indian-based Tata Motors.
David Smith, Newly appointed JLR CEO, said: "This recruitment drive demonstrates Jaguar Land Rover's confidence in our future.
“With our new owners, we have entered an exciting era with stunning new models and ambitious technologies. I can't remember a better time to be part of the British car industry, and certainly it is a brilliant time for Jaguar Land Rover."
Jaguar Land Rover is investing £700m in sustainable technologies to improve the environmental performance of its vehicles and is looking for experienced, degree educated engineers to work within the product development projects.
In addition, Jaguar Land Rover is launching a brand new graduate programme for over 80 graduates who will join the business in September on a two year development course.
