Jaguar Land Rover to take on 5000 new recruits

Jaguar Land Rover to take on 5000 new recruits

JLR has partnered with popular band Gorillaz "to find all real world attributes of a new generation of software and engineering talent".

Gorillaz is singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccals, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs. Hey, maybe you might land yourself the most badass job you can imagine.

Jaguar Land Rover is a subsidiary of Tata Motors.

The Jaguar I-Pace vehicle will be built in Austria, but bosses said they would "like to make such models in the United Kingdom if conditions such as support from government are met", adds the BBC.

Players are then faced with a series of increasingly hard code cracking puzzles, created to test curiosity, persistence, lateral thinking and problem solving skills - skills JLR says it needs.

Eventually, the 5000 people will be working on software systems, cyber systems, app development and graphics performance - suggesting that the roles are not just in Jaguar's driverless programme, but in other dimensions of its tech operations, too.

It is also 82 days after Theresa May sent a letter formally notifying the European Council of Britain's intention to withdraw. The UK is unable to sign such deals while it remains a member of the European Union but can explore options and develop ties.

Most of the jobs will be based in the United Kingdom and the recruitment is expected to be completed in the next 12 months. "It will be the first of its kind", added Heslop.

Late previous year, Jaguar Land Rover announced Noodle, the band's guitarist, as a brand ambassador and she's helping recruit: "Can you crack the code?"

Bloomberg reported that senior group executives have held preliminary internal discussions over listing of the British luxury automobile company Jaguar Land Rover over an worldwide stock exchange.

If you download the new Gorillaz app from either the iTunes App Store or Google Play, you can go through a process that could end up with a job offer.

Citing sources familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported earlier this week that Tata was weighing up floating its luxury auto unit in either London or NY.

The Gorillaz App places the user inside the band's house, enabling them to interact with the various virtual band members.
