Jaguar Land Rover has announced plans to up its graduate intake to nearly 1,000, with the creation of an additional 275 graduate jobs by September.
The company wishes to foster innovation in its technologies by collaborating with universities, and investing in the next generation of engineering graduates.
Jaguar Land Rover’s announcement comes as part of an industry-wide pledge of investment from car manufacturers, which may create up to 1,700 new graduate jobs and 7,600 apprenticeships by 2018.
More than 25 companies in the automotive industry have matched the government’s investment of £500 million, fulfilling their obligations to an initiative that aims to secure 30,000 jobs over the next decade.
Part of the £1 billion fund will be used to establish an advanced research and development centre, promising hundreds of apprenticeships and graduate jobs.
Hundreds of graduate jobs can be applied for right now on this very site.
