Jaguar Land Rover has seized upon the opportunity to recruit high-quality staff from global techology and social media firms. The luxury carmaker has announced a global hiring drive to fill more than 800 new digital and engineering vacancies across the UK, Ireland, USA, India, China and Hungary, as it seeks to recruit skilled workers from the digital technology industry.

Following the news of large-scale job losses from technology firms, Jaguar Land Rover is opening a new jobs portal for displaced workers from the tech industry to explore career opportunities, offering hybrid working patterns.

Available roles span Autonomous Driving, Artificial Intelligence, Electrification, Cloud Software, Data Science, Machine Learning and many more, as the company becomes a digital-first and data-driven organisation. 

These skills are essential to developing, building and repairing Jaguar Land Rover’s next generation of cars that will epitomise beauty and modern luxury, while delivering for clients a fully connected experience.

“We are further strengthening our data and digital skills base so we can deliver our Reimagine strategy and become an electric-first business from 2025 and achieve carbon net zero by 2039. Our digital transformation journey is well underway but being able to recruit highly skilled digital workers is an important next step. We are pleased to be able to provide opportunities to talented individuals with digital capabilities,” said Anthony Battle, Chief Information Officer.

Dave Nesbitt, Digital Product Platform Director, said: “Jaguar Land Rover is transforming to an electric-first business, and we are creating some of the most digitally advanced vehicles ever seen. Through our products we will create new experiences, new levels of intimacy and connected car services for our customers, to give our clients a true modern luxury experience.”

Through its Reimagine strategy, the Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover has sharpened its focus on electrification, digital services and data. The company is focused on enhancing its in-house data capability, which is crucial to its digital transformation to deliver clients a modern luxury experience.
