UK’s biggest automaker Jaguar Land Rover will employ 5,000 staff as it enhances its skills in autonomous and electric innovation, a welcome business endorsement as Prime Minister Theresa May begins Brexit talks after election.

JLR, which has over 40,000 people internationally, stated it would employ 1,000 electronic and software engineers as well as 4,000 additional workers including in production, most of whom will be based in Britain.

The recruitment procedure will take place over the next 12 months, when the Britain’s talks to depart from the European Union, which automakers have cautioned must lead to a deal which retains free and unfettered trade to safeguard jobs.

May lost her parliamentary majority in this month’s general election that her Conservatives battled on the guarantee of a clean break with the EU single market and customs union.

The renewed political unpredictability has seen business confidence tumble these days, as per studies and business groups.

Hours prior the talks were due to start in Brussels, the heads of the UK’s most significant business lobbies contacted the government to engage “continuously” with UK business interests and strike a deal that protects the benefits of EU membership consisting of tariff-free trade, warranties for EU people living in the UK and minimal customs rules.

Finance minister Philip Hammond stated leaving the EU without an agreement is going to be “very, very bad” result for Britain and he desired an exit that would support employment and investment..

“When I discuss a Brexit that supports British jobs, British investment and British organisation I mean a Brexit that prevents those cliff edges,” Hammond stated during an interview with BBC television on Sunday.
