Jaguar Land Rover to create 1,000 jobs in the UK
14 March 2012
Jaguar Land Rover will create 1,000 jobs at its car manufacturing factory on Merseyside.
The Halewood factory will see new jobs created to meet increased demand for car models such as the Range Rover Evoque and its Freelander 2.
In addition of the new production operators, supervisors and engineers, the factory’s workforce will have trebled in the last three years to almost 4,500.
Des Thurlby, HR Director, Jaguar Land Rover, says: “We are moving Halewood to three shifts and 24-hour operation to meet increased global demand. JLR’s supply chain is also set to benefit, with thousands more jobs expected to be created.”
Dr Neil Bentley, CBI Deputy Director-General, says: “The news that Jaguar Land Rover will be creating a further 1000 jobs at its Halewood plant is a shot in the arm for UK manufacturing and the automotive industry in particular.
“This is further evidence of re-balancing across the economy, with the latest UK trade figures showing record levels of exports going to countries outside the EU, such as the US and China.
“Jaguar Land Rover continues to be a great British success story, which provides a real boost to its supply chain and the wider economy.”
Borer's FUSION Time Recording System
With a high number of employees on payroll, using Borer's FUSION Time Recording System will help reduce management involvement and the administrative effort required to manage a time management scheme.
It is labour demanding to manage and maintain a centrally administered or paper based flexitime system. Invariably, queries arise in relation to flexi balances and the process can become a very complicated one, particularly for the HR department.
Implementing an automated time and attendance system makes things very easy for both employees and their managers alike.
