Jaguar Land Rover has launched a recruitment campaign to fill more than 100 new roles within its purchasing team.
Purchasing is Jaguar Land Rover’s fastest growing business function having seen its headcount more than double since 2009. The additional vacancies for procurement specialists, purchasing managers and supplier development engineers and managers will take the team to almost 700.
Ian Harnett, Jaguar Land Rover purchasing director said: “In the last two years Jaguar Land Rover has invested almost £10 billion in the UK supply chain alone.
“This spend is indicative of the important role played by every member of the purchasing team in helping Jaguar Land Rover realise its ambitions and in turn positively impact the prosperity of the UK automotive sector.
“If we are to continue to do this we need experienced and talented buyers and managers including those who may not have previously considered a career in the automotive industry. Jaguar Land Rover is at an incredibly exciting juncture in its history and with each production buyer responsible for an average spend of £50m per annum, we can guarantee new recruits will be empowered to drive Jaguar Land Rovers future success”.
The campaign which is live on the Jaguar Land Rover careers web site is targeting experienced purchasing professionals to support its production, non-production and supplier development operations.
