Car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced it is recruiting more than 150 apprentices to work in any of Jaguar Land Rover’s sites across the UK.
The company says it wants to add to the 300 apprenticeships already created over the last two years.
Apprentices will be based at all JLR sites in the West Midlands, including its new engine facility being built on the Staffordshire-Wolverhampton border.
They will also work at Halewood, Merseyside. The apprenticeships will last for between three and six years.
Kirsty Scott, head of organisation performance at JLR, said it was “another significant intake of new apprentices in 2013”.
“We have ambitious plans for growth and Jaguar Land Rover is committed to providing the highest quality of both practical and academic training to develop future talent for the business,” she added.
The news of the apprenticeships comes just days after the company announced the creation of 800 production jobs at its plant in Solihull.
The group, based in Gaydon, Warwickshire, produces Land Rovers in Solihull and Halewood while Jaguars are produced at the Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham.
JLR said it would be accepting applications until 31 January.
