Jaguar Land Rover cuts 1000 jobs in the UK

Jaguar Land Rover cuts 1000 jobs in the UK”

Premium automobile brand Jaguar Land Rover is UK's largest automobile manufacturer.

It said today it will lay off some of its agency workers at its Solihull site and move just over 360 people to the location from its nearby Castle Bromwich plant.

JLR said in a statement on Friday that it was making adjustments to production schedules and the levels of agency staff "in light of the continuing headwinds impacting the vehicle industry".

As is standard business practice, Jaguar Land Rover regularly reviews its production schedules to ensure market demand is balanced globally.

Industry figures show continuing declines in United Kingdom vehicle production mainly thanks to steep falls in domestic demand, while there are also concerns about how exports may be affected by any trade barriers which could be thrown up by Brexit.

It said it would continue to recruit large numbers of engineers and apprentices, adding it remains committed to its United Kingdom plants.

'We also remain committed to our United Kingdom plants in which we have invested more than £4bn since 2010 to future-proof manufacturing technologies to deliver new models'. Now the company has told staff at its Birmingham factories that their contracts won't be renewed as it implements a cutback.

In addition to the job cuts, JLR's Solihull facility will reduce production levels - the site now produces models including the Jaguar XE and Land Rover Discovery.
