Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced plans to axe more than 2,000 jobs from its workforce across the UK during 2021.
This follows the news that JLR will move to all-electric by 2025 across its three manufacturing sites across the country.
The Coventry-based firm announced that the job cuts will not affect manufacturing staff – and more details will be announced in due course.
In a statement JLR said: “We need to reduce the cost base to achieve a lean foundation, which will allow us to transform most effectively into a more agile organisation. We have started to brief our salaried employees about the detail of the organisation review. This does not impact our hourly paid, manufacturing colleagues. We anticipate a net reduction of around 2,000 people from our global salaried workforce in the next financial year.”
