For the first time in history of Halewood, Jaguar Land Rover’s 4500 persons will be working around the clock to meet the increased global demand for the Range Rover Evoque.
Since its launch back in 2011, Range Rover Evoque has attained high worldwide sale success with nearly 88000 units being sold around in more than 170 markets.
In March this year, Jaguar Land Rover announced that Halewood will be moving to 24 hour production and launched a requirement drive to employ over 1000 new operators, supervisors and engineers. These new workers will be engaged in manufacture of both Land Rover Freelander 2 and Rand Rover Evoque models across three shifts, including the newly inducted night shift.
With over 4500 workers JLR have trebled its workforce in 3 years. The JLR’s new production operatives will receive a year of training which will guide them to an intermediate apprenticeship.
The Range Rover Evoque has received much of the critical acclamation achieving more than 120 global awards. It was also crowned as the Top Gear Magazine Car of the year, North American Truck of the year and World Design car of the year. The Range Rover still continues to collect applauses for its concept car like looks, class leading off road skills, driving performance and excellent ownership cost.
