Attraction The first thing that attracted me to J&LR is that it is the only large automotive manufacturer in the UK. I always feel quite proud when I’m telling people who I work for and I always get a good reaction. I was attracted to work for J&LR because you see the products on the road every day and you actually get to work on the cars. I think what attracted me about working for J&LR the most was that it was a really big company, there was so much to see and so much to do. The attraction of J&LR is the variety of the experience you can get on the graduate scheme, they also provide great support throughout your training and development. http://www.jaguarlandrovercareers.com/Our-People/Default.aspx
