Jaguar Land Rover, Finalist 2011, Best for Career Progression Award
One of the barriers identified by women is the ability to balance home and work life. Since 2009 a total of 124 women have received training around career development, planning, coaching, leadership etc. A number of those attending have flexible working arrangements. The feedback from participants, has said that it has allowed them to reflect on what they want from their careers and it has given them increased confidence.
This has created a network of women who have got involved with apprentice, graduate and experienced hire recruitment into Jaguar Land Rover, providing opportunities for female staff development whilst working flexibly. The network has provided role models of senior women working flexibly in a traditionally male dominated sector.
