It has been revealed that Range Rover is to offer new jobs at its Halewood factory on the back of the great success of its latest Evoque model. With the new Evoque ‘baby’ off-roader proving extremely popular, the car manufacturer is to invest in a £100m expansion plan, offering great opportunities for those wanting jobs in Liverpool and the surrounding areas.
Though the Evoque only went on sale in September 2011, the demand has soared, with Jaguar Land Rover expressing that it would have to double production to keep up with the sales to customers. Around 1,000 new jobs will be created at the company’s Halewood factory on Merseyside, allowing a third shift to be installed at the factory so that production can increase.
Celebrity faces such as George Lamb and Victoria Beckham, who have both been seen at launches for the vehicle and have instantly made it the latest stylish icon to drive, have helped the popularity of the Evoque. Such celebrity endorsement has led to soaring demand and the latest £100m investment by the company in its Merseyside plant will help Land Rover make more cars than ever before.
Jaguar Land Rover had already revealed expansion plans, having previously announced recruitment for 1,000 new jobs at its Solihull plant to help with increasing production. Now, the latest prospects for Liverpool mean that job seekers in the area will be in a prime position to take on the latest jobs from this globally recognised car manufacturer.
