In Brexit boost, Jaguar Land Rover to hire 5000 staff

Jaguar Land Rover to create 5000 jobs

A JLR spokesman clarified that although young people were more likely to reach the app-based element of the recruitment drive, it's open to all above the age of 16. The first part of the challenge is created to educate users about the benefits of electric vehicles and involves assembling the new Jaguar I-Pace Concept.

To attract talented candidates in the field of software and electronics, JLR and rock band Gorillaz have developed an app that includes a code breaking challenge. The company is teaming up with the virtual band Gorillaz (think Damon Albarn) and candidates will face challenges from within the Goriallaz app. The challenge takes them on a series of code breaking puzzles, that will test their curiosity, persistence, lateral thinking and problem solving skills - all real world attributes of a new generation of software and engineering talent.

Late past year, Jaguar Land Rover announced Noodle, the band's guitarist, as a brand ambassador and she's helping recruit: "Can you crack the code?"

Following stories of a lack of talent in driverless and autonomous tech development, Jaguar looks to diversify the pool of talent, as well as the ways in which it is reached, by launching the more youth-oriented recruitment programme with Gorillaz. "It will be the first of its kind", added Heslop. The company employs over 40,000 people worldwide.

For the group, it is now necessary to find new ways to attract talents in the United Kingdom, as the future Brexit makes potential foreign employees more scarce and more hard to convince to cross the Channel. In 2016 Jaguar Land Rover sold more than 583,000 vehicles in 136 countries, with more than 80 per cent of our vehicles produced in the United Kingdom being sold overseas.

JLR fully knows that companies that first develop successful systems are likely to dominate the market.
