Car giant Jaguar Land Rover has launched the first phase of a recruitment drive to take on employees at its new engine manufacturing centre.

Around 600 jobs will be created over the next four years at the firm’s site near Wolverhampton in the West Midlands.

More than £500m is being invested in the centre, where low-emission engines will be built.

Trevor Leeks, the centre’s operations director, said: “Our new engine manufacturing centre is a significant strand of Jaguar Land Rover’s global growth ambitions and it is critical that we have a world-class manufacturing team at the heart of our new plant.”
