Record numbers of graduates apply at Jaguar Land Rover

Jaguar Land Rover has received 10,632 applications for its graduate recruitment places this year as it continues its recruitment drive to support a multi billion pound investment plan for new product creation.

Applications are 61 per cent higher than in 2011 and are five times higher than they were just three years ago. For 2012, graduates will be hired for a variety of roles across the business – from Product Development Engineering, Manufacturing, Finance, Human Resources, Marketing & Sales, IT and Purchasing.

Jaguar Land Rover HR Director, Des Thurlby, said: “Seeing the number of graduate applications increase five-fold in three years reflects the increasingly positive perception graduates have of our business. The recruits will be joining us at an exciting time, and once on-board, we will work hard to ensure that their careers with us will be both challenging and exciting.

"In addition to the graduate milkround, Jaguar Land Rover continues to recruit for hundreds of positions from shop floor to senior management, across a whole range of business functions. In 2011, the Company handled more than 45,000 applications from candidates wanting to join us on our exciting journey. I am delighted that we continue to receive so many applications from such high quality candidates."
