The Merseyside Jaguar Land Rover plant has moved to 24-hour production, with the introduction of an extra shift.

 

The car maker has created another 1,000 jobs at its site in Halewood so it can meet demand for its Evoque and Freelander models.

 

As a result, staff will work to a three shift pattern with the first night shift starting at 21:30 BST on Monday.

 

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

Actually, this was a good employment and export story, but we can't rely solely on cars. 80% of the vehicles are being exported, to new markets like China - where they can feed that smog in Bejing! Mind you, the tail end of the story says it all - for 1,000 jobs at the plant, 30,000 applied. :mellow:

Does make you wonder how many are temporary jobs. I am sure for Tata to invest in Halewood ,there must be massive benefits for them written into the contract.
