Tatas-owned Jaguar Land Rover will hire over 100 graduates and under-graduates in 2010 to fill up vacancies across different verticals as sales return on track after a prolonged bumpy ride.
"Despite the challenging economic situation, we continue to invest in our people and in our future product line-up. We plan to recruit more graduates in 2010 than we did in 2009 to be in the best possible position as the economy improves," Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) HR Director Des Thurlby said in a statement.
JLR has planned to hire over 100 graduates and under- graduates next year in different verticals such as finance, IT, engineering, manufacturing, human resources, marketing, and purchasing.
The two British marques, which have invited job applications through their website, had recruited about 70 graduates and under-graduates in 2009.
India's largest auto maker Tata Motors' owned JLR had reported 30 per cent jump in its November sales at 18,825 units. While Jaguar sold 4,333 units during the month, down 2 per cent from November last year, Land Rover sales were up by 45 per cent at 14,492 units.
However, cumulative sales of JLR during the first eight months of 2009-10 fiscal were at 1,15,844 units, down 32 per cent from the corresponding period a year-ago.
