Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) North America this week celebrated the U.S. Armed Forces Team at a send-off event in Long Island, N.Y. ahead of their departure to Toronto for the 2017 Invictus Games, the international sporting event for wounded, ill and injured service members. JLR is the Presenting Partner of the Invictus Games Toronto 2017 and sponsor of the U.S Armed Forces Team, continuing their support of the inaugural Games in London in 2014 and the Orlando Games in 2016.
As part of Jaguar Land Rover North America’s continued commitment to supporting Veterans and Transitioning Service Members, the company today announced the expansion of its Veterans hiring program with CALIBRE Systems, Inc. across its retailer network in Canada. The first Canadian Armed Forces Veteran was hired through Jaguar Land Rover Edmonton in Alberta, Canada this month. The program, which connects skilled and experienced service members and veterans with employment opportunities at Jaguar Land Rover retailers in partnership with CALIBRE Systems, Inc., was launched in the U.S. in 2016 and has resulted in the hiring of nearly 200 Veterans to date. This program follows the recruitment of over 700 Transitioning Service Members, Veterans, and currently serving members of the National Guard and Reserve in the UK since 2013.
