Jaguar Land Rover Beginning 24-Hour Production

Merseyside’s Jaguar Land Rover plant will operate 24-hours a day following the introduction of an extra shift.

In order to meet demand for the company’s Evoque and Freelander models, 1,000 new jobs have been created and a new three shift pattern implemented.

The first night shift at the plant will begin on Monday 20, at 21:30.

The new jobs take the site's workforce to 4,500 – three times the number working there three years ago.

They include production operators, supervisors and engineers.

In December 2010 there were more than 14,000 applications for 1,500 new jobs as the plant began production of the Evoque.
