Jaguar Land Rover lures sacked tech workers
Following the news of large-scale job losses from Twitter, Meta and others, JLR is opening a new jobs portal for displaced workers from the tech industry to explore career opportunities, offering hybrid working patterns.
The car manufacturer has almost 800 career opportunities available as part of its plans to become more data-driven, and said it would be a chance to work on its ‘vehicles of the future’ with positions available in the UK, Ireland, USA, India, China and Hungary.
The available roles span areas in autonomous driving, artificial intelligence, electrification, cloud software, data science, machine learning and many more.
Anthony Battle, Jaguar Land Rover’s chief information officer, said: ‘‘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 under way 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.’’
