Jaguar Land Rover sets its sights on laid off tech workers

(Sharecast News) - Luxury carmaker Jaguar Land Rover has set its sights on out-of-work British tech workers as the company looks for assistance as it gears up to develop electric car technology.
Jaguar Land Rover, which is owned by India's Tata Motors, hopes to become an "electric-first" operation from 2025 onwards. In order to facilitate this, the group launched a jobs portal for displaced tech workers on Friday as it looks to fill 800 roles across its self-driving, electrification, machine learning, and data science units.

The Coventry-based company said workers leaving tech giants like Amazon would likely best fit to fill new roles across Britain, Ireland, the United States, India, China, and Hungary.

Jaguar Land Rover's accelerated hiring efforts come hot on the heels of mass layoffs at the likes of Twitter, Meta and Amazon.

"Our digital transformation journey is well underway but being able to recruit highly skilled digital workers is an important next step," said chief information officer Anthony Battle.

As of 1400 GMT, Tata Motors shares were up 0.20% at INR 424.00 (436.0p).
