Jaguar Land Rover to take on 5,000 new recruits

Carmaker Jaguar Land Rover is to recruit 5,000 staff in a bid to enhance its expertise in autonomous and electric technology.

The BBC reports the firm said it would hire 1,000 electronic and software engineers and 4,000 workers across other sectors, including manufacturing.

Most of the jobs are UK-based, with recruitment taking place over the coming year.

The BBC adds while JLR is to build its first electric vehicle, the I-PACE, in Austria, it has indicated it would like to construct such models in the UK if conditions such as support from government are met.
