The GorillazApp now includes a newJaguar Land Rover recruitment area in the form of a 360-environment situated in the garage of the band's home, which also features all the iconic vehicles from Gorillaz past.
Britain's largest auto manufacturer JaguarLand Rover (JLR) will employ 5,000 people in order to boost the company's skills in electric and autonomous technology, a welcome corporate endorsement as UK's Prime Minister Theresa May begins Brexit negotiations after the election.
The carmaker said it was hunting "the next generation of world-class electronics and software engineering talent" through the creation of 1,000 new roles.
JLR, which builds just under a third of Britain's 1.7 million cars, has said half of all its new models will be available in an electric version by the end of the decade, requiring new skills among its staff.
The company claims its unusual recruitment drive with Gorillaz, which was launched by Blur frontman Damon Albarn, has been developed to "tackle the engineering skills gap and inspire and attract a diverse range of talent and new thinking".
Traditional application methods remain open and CVs will be accepted, but Jaguar Land Rover invites potential applicants to download the app and break the codes and solve the problems to fast-track their way into employment.
Consisting of two parts, the first will concentrate on electric vehicles, assembling Jaguar Land Rover cars, while the second will be a code-cracking challenge that has more than 4,000 combinations.
In September 2016, Jaguar Land Rover set up a new multi-million pound Classic Works operation in Ryton and its chief executive Ralf Speth had outlined his vision of Coventry being at the heart of the firm's growth plans as a "smart" motor city, helping the United Kingdom to lead the world in autonomous, connected and electric vehicles. "It will be the first of its kind", Alex Heslop, JLR's head of electrical engineering, said.
