Exclusive: Carmaker, which has been hit by computer chip shortage, to scale down shifts at Solihull and Halewood
LONDON (Reuters) -Laid off tech workers could find new jobs at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) as the 100-year-old British automaker looks to hire hundreds of engineers to help develop electric cars. JLR, which is owned by India's Tata Motors, on Friday announced a jobs portal for displaced tech workers to fill 800 roles spanning self-driving, electrification, machine learning and data science. The luxury carmaker, which wants to become an "electric-first" business from 2025, said it believed workers leaving big tech groups like Amazon were most likely to have the required skills to fill new roles in Britain, Ireland, the United States, India, China and Hungary.
