Highfields hosts JLR careers roadshow

Highfields School hosted a prestigious careers event run by Jaguar Land Rover to inspire budding young engineers of the future.

JLR ran the event in conjunction with a number of its leading engineering and manufacturing partners to provide information and guidance to students, parents and teachers about the range of career opportunities available.

The company is staging talks across the West Midlands as part of the careers roadshow and chose Highfields to host the Wolverhampton event for the second year running.

Jaguar Land Rover - which recently opened a £500 million engine plant on the i54 site in Wolverhampton - offers a wide range of opportunities and apprenticeships that enable young talent to build experience, gain qualifications and earn a competitive salary while making a real contribution to the success of the organisation and the engineering sector.  

Its partner companies help to support operations by supplying components or services for its vehicles from the rugged and iconic Land Rover Defender to the exciting new Jaguar XE.Adrian Jeavons, Careers and Business Links manager at Highfields, said: “The industry demands ambitious and talented young people from various stages of education.  At Jaguar Land Rover, in particular, they offer an Advanced Apprenticeship Scheme for those with or currently studying GCSEs and a Higher Apprenticeship scheme for those with or currently studying A Levels.  Many of their partners offer similar schemes.

“We are honoured that we were chosen to host this prestigious careers event for the second year in a row to give budding engineers of the future the inspiration to go ahead and pursue their dreams.”
